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 directly for six years, during that time he was a key member of the development team that he then went on to lead. Marty's grasp of web development technologies, coupled with his ability to talk clearly and concisely to clients and stakeholders, made him a valuable member of the team. Flexible to changing situations, Marty's warm management style was popular in the team, and he implemented new standards and processes that have been of great benefit. I would wholehearted recommend Marty for any development or technical management role.
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.
