BRIEF

The official home for Dell Design. This site highlights the stories behind Dell products, career opportunities for designers, studio locations and details about how our teams approach each design challenge.

I was thrilled to be involved with a project of this size and was asked to lead the design and implementation with a planned role-out at CES 2016.

PROCESS

 

Sketches. Notes. Questions.

Without any time to waste, I began pouring through the exisiting site, looking for what content was missing and what was complete. I collaborated with our teams in Amsterdam and Taipei, writing articles about their studio locations and product expertise.

 
 
 
 

Mood boards. Inspiration. Style guides.

Once all the content was gathered, I began creating mood boards for each of the website sections. I quickly realized the existing site was not designed to properly scale to accommodate this much information. The one-page design would become overly complex and lengthy.

With the mood boards filled with imagery and inspiration, I began working on an updated site design to deliver alongside the original deliverable.

 
 
 
 

RESULTS

 

A scalable site to build upon.

I wanted to approach the design of each page with a focus on future-proofing and space to breathe. Dell hardware designs are beautiful and unique. I wanted to ensure the site reflected that, setting the stage for images and interactions to speak with the user instead of the site housing them.
