Let’s Talk About:

Complementing the Old and New

Dave Scherler

By Dave Scherler, User Experience Designer

Many of us at Viget are big game-people – crokinole in the office, skribbl tournaments online, trivia at local pubs. We love the competition camaraderie and creativity that games offer. So when Stern Pinball reached out for help strategizing, designing, and building a digital platform that would connect players’ mobile devices to their classic pinball machines, we were game.

As we dug into this project, we realized this wasn’t just a companion-app. This project needed to complement — rather than compete with — the analog experience that Stern's passionate fan base loves. We launched Insider Connected last fall, and we’re proud of how it turned out. Read our case study to explore this project. And, yes — it did involve many hours of pinball-playing ‘research.’
