HBLaw engaged us to help create an attractive SharePoint branding solution in order to move forward with a document repository. The client wanted their portal to reflect the same visual aesthetics as their public site, all while maintaining the ease and functionality of a standard SharePoint site. They also requested some guidance on SharePoint best practices for areas such as governance, security and site administration.
We developed and implemented a branding scheme, working closely with HBLaw's IT manager to ensure the end product was in line with what they had envisioned. We started with a template that we had successfully utilized previously to give the client a jumpstart on which they could provide input on functionality, layout, and branding. We added a number of visual cues taken directly from or inspired by their public site and enhanced a number of out-of-the-box SharePoint displays to seamlessly meld together a modern design with SharePoint automated content. The design was reviewed in a number of iterative steps and few revisions were made, all within a tight schedule. We also provided the client with a simple support system, interactive power user training, and clear documentation on their portal.
HBLaw was provided with a fully functional, modern SharePoint portal that strongly identified with their corporate branding. They were able to utilize their portal for managing documents in a secure, persistent environment. They also now have a platform on which to easily extend SharePoint's other capabilities for document management and handling.
