With a very tight, two-week turnaround, Skype asked us to create a responsive, web-based map solution for the Skype Winter X-Games in Aspen, Colorado. Luckily, we are experts in mapping and we love a challenge!

Why?

Because visitors to the event, and those following the games remotely, wanted to get closer to the competitors via social media and Skype.

Our solution

Through close collaboration with Skype’s design partner, we created a customised, interactive map, aligned to Skype’s X-Games branding. All within two weeks, of course. The map was highly stylised and we included some simple administration tools for the Skype team to manage what was displayed. Crucially, the map was very robust, with no performance issues or bugs reported during the Games.

How was the experience?

This project required a very quick turnaround, which earthware handled swiftly and efficiently. They led both Skype and its supporting agencies through the entire build journey with ease and authority. Great job!
