Award winning FCK.dk

This was the first major project I managed. It went on to win a Danish Internet Award in 2014 for ‘best newsroom site‘.

FCK is a major European football team who has played against teams like Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea and frequents the UEFA Champions League.

Design and UX was done by Spring / Summer, and implemented by us at SiteLoom on a tight deadline for the season start. The project was run as a straight waterfall project, with very little functionality changing from design to launch.
