New UK Intranet design and development
Ipsos MORI migrated their existing SharePoint 2007 Intranet to SharePoint 2013 and required a new design for the new intranet launch.
A new design was applied to the entire site structure for a cleaner more modular look.
The homepage was developed to pull events and tailored news from across the site allowing for a more focussed and engaging interface.
The existing page template was adapted to allow existing pages to snap into the new branding with little or no effort from content editors.
Features included a fluid layout, collapsible menus, animated news features, dynamic data driven carousels and easy to populate custom web-parts.
The site launch coincided with the UK headquarters moving offices and had a strict and very tight deadline. The new portal was designed and built ahead of time and the launch was a complete success.
I worked with Marty on and off for 2.5 years. He's one of the best designers I've ever worked with. Not only does he have great design skills, he also creates the code to make it run exactly as it should. Whether it's writing expert Actionscript, making databases work, figuring out how to code for Bebo, and much more. Marty's enthusiasm to do a good job is unfailing. He's a natural all rounder and a great communicator. Working with Marty was a pleasure. His fun and positive personality, plus talent and integrity - make him someone I'd recommend wholeheartedly!
Marty and I worked together and finished quite a lot projects successfully. As a technical lead his grasp on the knowledge and grip on technicality aspects helped the team to finish various projects swiftly and smoothly. He is a great technical guy and he possesses exceptional leadership qualities. His knowledge about front-end as well as back-end helped the team to understand the logic of different projects. He is knowledgeable in .Net, Bootstrap, HTML5, CSS3, Sql Server and many other modern technologies what any technical team wants. He knows how to provide crystal clear instructions to his team. Also, he has a good sense of humour that makes him loved by all of his team mates and he treats his team members like his friends so that he can get his work done in time and also make sure that his team enjoy their time while working with him. I recommend him to every employer who wants to hire a friendly and skilled technical lead.
