How colour effects intranet design

Presentation from Intranets2017

About my talk

Getting the interface design right is an essential ingredient on any intranet. However, the online world today provides untold choice and everyone has an opinion on what looks best and thinks they are an expert. Understanding the essentials of great design will build you confidence whether dealing with internal stakeholder requests, managing a visual design implementation or simply making design decisions yourself.

Rishad will provide this grounding, covering:

  • The impact of colour/shade and form for an effective intranet design
  • The do’s and don’t of design for intranets (websites versus intranets)
  • How do I match our brand and make an intranet look good, without being too corporate?
