Magic: The Gathering Website

Hasbro tasked me with building the most visually impressive and immersive blog the category had ever seen for the latest expansion of their trading card game. We used the panoramic landscape art to create layered, 3D environments with HTML5 that the user could explore, discovering information about the game, its characters, settings and features along the way.

 Hasbro wanted to create an immersive microsite for the latest release of Magic: The Gathering, featuring artwork of large panoramic landscapes the brand had never created before.

 In the short promotional period leading up to product launch, we received over one million views through organic word of mouth and social sharing with zero media investment. But the most impressive statistic by far was the 30+ minutes average time spent on the site.
