Client: The National Geographic Society has been inspiring people to care about the planet since 1888. It is one of the largest non-profit scientific and educational institutions in the world. Its interests include geography, archaeology and natural science, and the promotion of environmental and historical conservation.

Overview: National Geographic recognized the need to make collaboration and communication easier between its robust global employee and partner network by improving and enhancing its own internal intranet.

Solution: Lead the research and design to create a world class, top notch intranet. Based upon an Ektron.NET CMS backend, designed prototypes, mockups, and hundreds of pages of wireframes to ensure the intranet was highly usable and functional.
