Prescient’s design approach is strategically driven, recognizing that design should help to achieve the measurable goals defined for the intranet or website. Design must facilitate the usability of the site and aid in guiding users to where they need to go while also adding appeal and assisting with engagement.
Prescient builds intranet information architectures, the key foundation for effective design, by reviewing key findings and strategic plans, conducting card sorts, and relying on experience and best practices for usability.
Intranet wireframes, or page layouts, are then developed to show positioning of elements on the page. At this stage some usability testing can be conducted to test the intuitiveness of the navigation. Then design is applied to the approved wireframes based on brand guidelines in order to facilitate achievement of intranet goals.
Strategic Design includes:
- Review of Key Findings and Strategic Plan
- Persona development
- Information Architecture development
- Card sorting workshop
- Wireframe development
- Usability testing
- Design Concepts
- Design Guidelines
Prescient can deliver design concepts as well as cascading style sheets. In addition, Prescient can provide design guidelines so that the design can be maintained.
