Open Salon is the social networking web service of well-known Salon.com, an online magazine with a focus on politics and entertainment. The online service is built around user-generated content.

I worked with the Vice-president of New Projects as the user experience designer, helping him to define his vision for this new service, and developing the user interface and graphics. Some of my tasks included organizing complex information into a simple information architecture; designing interfaces for users to sign up, upload and manage their content (images and text); figuring out intuitive ways to view and present options; and defining overall process flows.

To the left are two of many wireframe-like designs I completed. The "Profile Edit Page" is for the engineers to show how some of the fields would be presented to the user for dynamic update via AJAX.

The Profile Survey document is a comparative review of how other social networking services handled member profiles.
