Redesign of the overall UX and UI for Microsoft's global corporate intranet. The design challenge was to create a visual experience framework that would be as compelling in Redmond as it was in Beijing while allowing for seamless coexistence of all the various information levels and types generated by the intranet maintenance team.
We took our cue from the Microsoft Metro visual style and created a clean design that surfaces region specific information, personalized for each user. The Microsoft employees responded very well to the redesign, calling the result "stunning" and "inspiring."
