Microsoft has been a big client of Razorfish (even an owner of Razorfish at one point). In several years of working with Razorfish, I worked with Microsoft across many diverse projects. One of those projects was KIN, a Windows Phone, launched in late spring of 2010. Working with the Razorfish team, we helped create a much needed and fresh new look for Microsoft.
The website was pretty amazing, winning awards and even making The FWA shortlist. Unfortunately the phone didn’t perform as well, and Microsoft pulled the plug. I worked as a Senior Interactive Designer, creating design layouts and animations of the phone. For its home at Verizon Wireless, I led the design of the site there.
