Microsoft: Escape Yesterworld

I worked with Garrigan Lyman Group to create a website supporting a major product launch by Microsoft. We created a retro-themed website featuring outdated thinking and outmoded technology, a place where no self-respecting IT professional or software developer wants to be.

Using edited, and re-voiced clips from classic Flash Gordon episodes, the campaign connected with its audience by using the footage's yesteryear look to illustrate the all-too-familiar pain points of using out-of-date technology.
