I am a graphic designer and film maker, who loves photography, user experience and pop culture in all its forms. During my professional career I have led teams on community and brochure site redesigns, created mock ups and other assets for on-line properties; worked with outside vendors to develop systems and work flows for on-line content distribution; set standards for best-in-class DVDs and downloadable content; played key roles on various marketing campaigns; and worked in fast paced news environments.
The acquisition comes as Tesco continues to build out its online content business, in competition with UK rival Sainsbury’s. Last year, the company bought video platform Blinkbox, following it up with the acquisition of music streaming service We7 earlier this year. Sainsbury’s, meanwhile, recently announced plans for its own video service, to be powered by Rovi.
