Brand Guidelines and brand positioing project. Including: visual a language system, imagery library development and data visualisation.

The Brief

LMH approached BrandAsylum to create and deliver a new intranet platform for the college its students, lecturers and staff. The platform had to work seamlessly with the digital platforms currently used by the College and Oxford University. The platform needed to be scalable and easily controlled internally by JCR and SCR members. Working closely with the marketing and IT team at LMH we were able to deliver a bespoke secure internal communications platform for LMH.

The Challenge

To create an engaging easy to use intranet platform that was able to link with the multitude of links and platforms that are associated and used within Oxford University, from booking exams, paying for meals, booking a punt, tennis court, bike or washing machines. The platform needed to be both functional, informative and educational and be able to be used by both students and staff alike as the ‘Go to’ information portal for the college.

The Solution

Redefining internal college communications

A completely new platform was designed and built, both in user experience and back end coding – delivering an intuitive easy to use complete solution to LMH’s communications. The new platform is scalable and offers a complete solution for communications across college life, with college event information, finance and sporting opportunities in the palm of your hand in a mobile first bespoke app.

UX & Design

The design and ease of use of the site was paramount, both with using the platform and add to the platform. Hours and days were spent designing and coding the platform to make it super easy to add / change content, update images or add new events and important information. This was all achieved whilst also working in the constraints of Shibboleth’s single sign-on architecture.
