Description

The client wanted a forms-based human resources (HR) management application with three major user groups; individuals who could view their own records, line managers who could also view their teams' records and the HR department who had varying degrees of oversight based on access rights. The only design constraints imposed were that it must not look like a forms based application and that it must be red to match the corporate colour-scheme.

After conducting requirements gathering workshops with key client decision makers, Mike designed a series of prototype interfaces and undertook an iterative review process to identify a radical final design concept that matched the clients' needs.

The interface, intended to resemble a contemporary generic high-tech Windows application, made extensive use of frames to present form data in as much of an un-formlike manner as was possible. The colours selected for text and text background were selected to meet and exceed accessiblity standards. The final interface, which was delivered ahead of schedule, was very well received by the client.
