The Naked Boss, a workplace transparency database where users could read reviews of potential workplaces or rate their supervises and their companies, was, unfortunately, a startup never-to-be-launched. But it was a lot of fun getting to work on this nonetheless.

The web-based service featured robust artwork and a clean and simple to use interface that allowed users to quickly query the database for a company or a specific person and see entire hierarchies within the company. Users could then rate their supervisor based on the 5 parameters that defined a healthy work and managerial environment. The totals were constantly being averaged out to give a unique overall score and users could also leave a review for others to read.

The site was further gamefied in that users could choose from endless costumes and avatar themes with which to dress their bosses up. A bidding system was added to allow for people to outbid each other to in order to add additional accessories and costumes.

On top of this, I worked to roll out email, newsletter and online marketing collateral, all featuring illustrations that I worked on for the project.

The site was entirely illustrated in Illustrator and used various levels of image mapping to allow for costume overlays, as well as avatar creation.
