Maria Sharapova Official Website
Maria Sharapova is a world renowned athlete who carries a celebrity status that matches her prowess on the tennis court. Winner of 22 career singles titles, Maria earned athletic acclaim and sponsorships from some of the planet’s largest brands. Her stunning looks made her equally recognizable as a model, while her goodwill pushes Maria to be respected as a dedicated philanthropist.
Lightmaker’s challenge was to build a website befitting a champion that also underscored her activity off the court. The website needed to engage her worldwide fan base, delivering content and interactivity to keep them involved.
A fully responsive hub for Maria's social activity and brands.
The end result was that Lightmaker developed more than just a website, we built a Maria Sharapova “Hub” that aggregates original news and video content, native advertisements, integrated streams from all of her Social Media accounts, a 24/7 Live Tweet discussion and powerful commercial activations for her brand partners.
The website is built on the WordPress content management system that empowers the Sharapova team to have complete control of their content and message. Her website was an Official Webby Award Honoree in the Celebrity / Fan category in the annual Webby Awards.
