Virtual Makeover

- Excite@Home for Procter&Gamble
- October 1999 - November 1999

Procter & Gamble partnered with Excite to create a web-based "virtual makeover" that enabled teen girls to upload a picture of themselves and try on various new looks. Girls could change their hair, makeup, and accessories, and then choose to save, email or print the result.

Interaction Design: Susan LK Gorbet
Art Direction: Grey Interactive

I created flowcharts and many versions of the page schematics before I changed jobs to become the Director of User Interface for Excite.com.

The application was implemented by an outside agency after I left, but my documentation was thorough enough that they implemented it with very few changes.
