DESIGNER for BOTTLE ROCKET APPS - 2013

KENTUCKY DERBY, A HISTORY OF CELEBRATION, FASHION, AND UNPARALLELED PAGEANTRY. FOLLOW ALONG IN REAL-TIME TO GET THE LATEST NEWS ON THE HORSES, THE RACE, AND OF COURSE – THE HATS!

Kentucky Derby : DerbyMe was a social app, built fast and simple for the Official Kentucky Derby race. Features included a curated Twitter feed and photo sharing fun that allowed you to “picture yourself" at the event. You could superimpose a photo of youself in a seersucker suit, on the back of a winning horse, or modeling a beautiful Derby hat.

LOADING ANIMATION

One of my favorite design details of this app was the loading bar. When the user refreshed the page, a miniature horse race would appear. The horse race and the winning results were always different.
