Chowhound City Guides
Chowhound City Guides are a video and article series shining the spotlight on neighborhoods in worldwide cities. Our editorial staff produced videos featuring up and coming restaurants in six cities. I worked closely with editorial, sales and product to produce a beautiful and scalable package to display each city, including a landing page, city hub and individual guide pages - a product that we feel has some major longevity potential on Chowhound.
City guides seemed like a natural product transition for us - hitting on everything we're good at: community + editorial, restaurant recommendations (both off-the-beaten path and mainstream suggestions). We had 2 days to concept a product package to pitch to the client for $1 million, focusing on building a suite that is easily re-sellable but also enhances the Chowhound experience.
Utilizing our recently launched maps and feature products, we were able to avoid starting from scratch and cut down on production time, still while creating a beautiful suite of pages.
The City Hub combined the Google-sponsored video, a callout to access the guide, discussions about the city from around the Chowhound community and a collection of features written by our very own influencers.
