According to the new sitemap their are total 19 pages. I started designing the wireframes by sketching them using pen and paper before creating the digital wireframes.

Project Takeaways

This was my first intranet project that client was gonna develop using SharePoint and it was a definitely good experience as UI/UX designer. As a designer it gave an opportunity to learn how to work with limited design option, limited resource and how to come up with solution with those resource to make the best user experience.

I really enjoyed learning new tool used majorly for companies intranet (SharePoint). The user research gave me an insight about how much important companies internal communication is for the growth and success of its employees. The opportunity showed me that as a designer how to come with best solutions with limited design options. It was a good reminder throughout the project that my job is to design for the employees and company since it is also gonna be contributing factor for company and its employees growth.
