As a freelance digital marketing consultant and project manager, I spearheaded the revamp of Magnus Carlsen’s new website. Magnus Carlsen is the World’s 1 Chess Champion who also owns his own tech start up called Play Magnus, which he uses to develop new chess apps aimed at helping people improve not just their chess skills, but also their brain skills as well. With so many eyes on Magnus in the chess world, it was imperative that his new website better reflect his fresh, cutting-edge, tech-savvy brand but also function as a one-stop shop where anyone can learn more about him, upcoming events and new products. Reporting directly to the CEO of Play Magnus, I managed a team of designers and developers from pitching and design concept stage through to final testing and go live. I’m happy to say we managed to deliver a website we can all be proud of.
