EON Magazine online store
If you’re a gamer and sci-fi fan, you might already know what this project is about. Eve Online is a space-based, persistent world massively multiplayer online role-playing game created by CCP Games. EON Magazine was the official EVE online magazine that featured all the latest EVE news, community updates, players’ profiles, interviews, ship reviews, guides and chats with CCP personalities plus loads more.
At the time I started with this unique project, I was a little bit of gamer myself, so I couldn’t be more chuffed to be working on the design and development of EON Magazine online store. Build with Joomla! and VirtueMart, it was one of the most demanding projects I had the opportunity to work on partially due to the fact I was a one-(wo)man band and the deadline was quite aggressive. I only had one month to create a template design, develop and make the eCommerce store live, including testing plus integration of the WorldPay and PayPal payment gateways. Challenge accepted…and website delivered on time!
After the launch of the EON Magazine online store, I had to focus on creating newsletter templates, animated and static online banners and social media promotional campaigns. It basically meant my work wasn’t over…and I was glad it wasn’t.
