Pollboxx

Pollboxx was part of a school project and part a personal idea I wanted to see come to life. The idea behind Pollboxx is to offer a service where people can create a poll with either yes (Yay) or no  (Nay) for an answer and then share that poll. The whole process had to be easy and fast.

The whole page is based on WordPress where a special plugin was written to achieve the easy voting process. The Vote is counted immediately after pressing the proper vote button without a page refresh. The answer is then stored in a cookie. To achieve maximum user interaction, the whole process of creating a poll is possible without registration. The ability to comment on polls allows the users to further interact with each other beyond the votes.

The Design was kept minimal with a strong focus on content and information display. Additionally, a special stylesheet was written for iPhone users to achieve a better user experience on a mobile device.
