Founded in 1998, HowStuffWorks is an award-winning website that is home to thousands of articles, podcasts and videos that explain how the world really works. The site receives nearly 40 million unique visitors and 10 million podcast downloads per month. HowStuffWorks.com is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, HSW Brazil headquarters is in Sao Paulo, SP and Bowenwang operates in China.
In February 2006, before the released of HSW Brazil, I was hired to be web designer, I had to take images from HowStuffWorks, erase its text in English and translate it to Portuguese and keep the original appearance, feel and look. Same thing for flash animations. I was also responsible for HTML coding, CSS, illustrations, creation of animated flash infographics, etc.
Key Technologies: Photoshop, Fireworks, Web Design, Graphic Design, illustration, HTML, CSS, PHP, Flash, CMS, XML, RSS, Rich text, Metadata.
