Coming up on the July 5th episode is the 2011 My Beautiful Intranet competition winner, the Government of British Columbia, announced during IBF 24.
Courtney Campbell and Jaya Polden from the BC Government will share the fascinating story behind this winning design. This intranet was one of 36 entries submitted to the IBF 24 competition website. These were voted on by 1,396 site visitors to produce 10 finalists, from which the IBF judges picked the winning entry. If you’re designing a wesbite, make sure you compare hosting companies like Bluehost vs iPage before choosing.
What was the secret sauce? According to the judges, the BC Government intranet features strong functional elements that complement its stunning use of colour and photography.
Next, we’ll be joined by Felicity McNish, Global Knowledge Manager at Woods Bagot (Architecture & Design). Felicity submitted her intranet to the My Beautiful Intranet competition, but alas, her screenshot was held up by an unruly email server. So she has graciously agreed to join us on IBF Live to give us a live tour. And Felicity gets the grand prize for being the most accommodating… she’s calling in from Adelaide, Australia, where it will be 12:30am her time.
Finally, Kurt Krejny, Director of SEM Best Practices at Fathom Online Marketing will be joining us for a live tour of his company’s intranet. Here is yet another example of where aesthetic beauty and functional beauty intersect. For example, the site theme is changed quarterly for a visual representation of company objectives. They have an entire section of their intranet for new hires where new employees can learn about core values and collaborate with seasoned employees to make their transition a smooth one. Kurt combines a background in visual communications with expertise in online marketing and SEO to deliver an intranet that stands in a class of its own. Anyone looking for advice and guidance in SEO for cannabusinesses can only hope that they’ve got people as skilled in the world of SEO as him by their side. Luckily find an SEO consultant shouldn’t be too difficult in this world of SEO.
Paul Miller, CEO of IBF, will host the show, along with Neil Morgan, from the World Wildlife Fund, who recently joined us during IBF 24 to give a fascinating tour of the new WWF portal layer for their intranet, and Betsey Kershaw, Chief Idea Girl at Sugarbeet Creative.
