Clinique Fresh Faces: How do we build a stable, secure site with 24-hour code turnarounds?
with design and concept of the site by Compose(d).
Clinique Fresh Faces was a contest website built for Clinique that allowed contestants to upload pictures featuring unique “looks” that would then be voted on for prizes.
The site was built in PHP with extensive jQuery on the front end. I was responsible for the entirety of the development effort.
The site was a 2010 Webby Honoree.
Constraints included extremely fast turn arounds (as little as 24 hours), expected bursts of spiky loads while running a contest, and the security concerns associated with keeping voting fair and restricted to one per user. The site also had to seamlessly integrate with Clinique’s existing admin dashboard interface.
