Project & Writing Samples

Games & apps 
Official Xbox
Support Website

Coordinated with the Game Title team at Xbox to improve the experience of the Games & apps Browse page on The Browse pages seek to be a mobile-friendly landing page for customers to quickly find what they're looking for (particularly if they're not comfortable with Search). However, the unfocused direction of this page (see snapshot) made browsing impossible for the average customer. "Games & apps" as a category is also incredibly broad for a gaming company. This content has been refined to focus on setup and general use of products and services, move troubleshooting to a new central location, and remove Store content upselling to focus on supportability and customer satisfaction/education. 

This project is ongoing. More to come to phase out game release content/upselling, focus on Xbox-centric supportability, and improve SEO.

Help for Xbox games & apps | Xbox Support - ​This is the anchor to this project, a new Hub (landing page) for all games and apps troubleshooting. This provides a centralized location for customers, support, and partners alike to find solutions to their experiences. The top highlights general troubleshooting for products and services, with more specific troubleshooting found in the sections below.
