I was the designer responsible for Rio 2016 project at GloboEsporte, the #1 sports website in Latin America. We had in this project a database and automatic pages from a supplier that did not comply with all the agreed deliveries.
A few weeks before the Olympic Games, we set up a plan B in case of failure of the supplier deliveries. The core of the project would be live game environments. We'd already had a complete solution, “Tempo Real”, but that only attends soccer games. As we have a generic news coverage solution, I suggested we design a scoreboard widget. We could cover other sports applying this component inside our news coverage page.
We designed an API for the CMS with a base interface for Handball, Basketball, Volleyball, Beach Volleyball and Tennis. The usage of an auto-push solution enabled editors to insert scores and automatically update them in the front-end side. Following the structure and visual guidelines of Tempo Real scoreboard, I designed a responsive scoreboard that allowed to cover all these sports and was applied in any width (any device and also in Cards, allowing to spread its content in different sections of GloboEsporte).
The solution was used massively by GloboEsporte newsroom during the Olympics. The project was planned to be expanded after Rio 2016 coverage: hosting club entities and covering different championships.
