Nike hired Portland based digital studio HEGA to build this site for the Nike Skateboarding brand that would provide a clean experience and put visual emphasis on the product and skateboarding team. This version of the site was live from 2010-2012.
In my position as a fulltime developer at HEGA I worked with Technical Director Mike Creighton to tag team front-end development across the site, taking a divide and conquer strategy for the different sections. I primarily developed the Apparel, News, Video and Family sections. This included custom jQuery plugins built to handle the interactivity and animation required for the UI components in those sections. I was also responsible for building a custom video player that used Nike’s Brightcove video content distribution platform.
