This design was the winner of a 48-hour challenge in which 8 teams competed to design a community site incorporating a Yammer news feed. While the time was short, we managed to survey users to find what they wanted and created a proof-of-concept site based on an existing UX community site.
The Dot provides a way to collaborate on documents simultaneously, including real-time collaboration (based on Microsoft Lync) and persistent chat (based on Yammer). I was part of the first CIO Institute, a handpicked team that tackled a project of our choice. We succeeded — the Dot is being built.
This shows an early wireframe for the Dot, done using Balsamiq in an intensive two-day design session. Note: This is an instance of me picking up a new tool on the fly, since I hadn't used Balsamiq previously.
We created four personas for the Dot project in addition to surveys on user pain points around collaboration and technology. We tied our personas to user demographics as a way of demonstrating who would benefit from our solution.
This shows initial wireframes for a redesign of DeloitteNet with design notes on the right. The wireframes were done with Balsamiq. The complete design was distributed in an interactive PDF.
When we moved our intranet from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 we also did a reskin for a fresh look and feel. This was mostly CSS but also included minor layout changes, etc.
To accompany the SharePoint reskin, I created an online style guide which included sections for colors, icons & images, fonts, boxes, layouts and forms. The style guide provided guidance for developers on which jQuery styles to use and included a basic CSS layout and reference for developers. The style guide website was built with both jQuery and responsive design.
Users found the native My SharePoint page too hard to customize. We replaced it with a .NET version and added some new Web parts (widgets). Users can drag and drop widgets to organize the page and change widget settings.
We made it easy to add Web Parts (widgets) to the personal intranet page via a widget carousel. Users can easily find and preview widgets of interest to them and drag and drop new widgets to their personal intranet page.
Our new CEO wanted a place to communicate with Deloitte leaders and needed it quickly. I was part of a small team that created a customized SharePoint blog which has been very successful.
This application enables users to reset their network passwords without having to contact the call center, saving many thousands of dollars a year. The application has screens for both end users and administrators. Instead of mockups, the screens were created as an HTML prototype. Designs were documented at the bottom of each screen.
