About the Project

With tens of thousands of associates dispersed across brands, stores, manufacturing facilities, and offices around the world, VF Corporation’s Office 365 SharePoint intranet serves as the collaborative hub for the entire organization. This prolific web application provides employees with a wealth of information ranging from document sharing and community portals to a bustling enterprise social network. With over 65,000 users, it was identified by Microsoft as one of the world’s largest SharePoint applications.

Seeking to redesign and improve the intranet in 2013, VFC partnered with Spiritous to design an imaginative new interactive interface for the collaborative experience.

Discovery and Planning

The early creative process included the development of several style tiles.

These rapidly drafted documents explored the creative aesthetic of the project early on, allowing stakeholders and project team members to weigh in on big-picture design decisions before major effort would be placed into any single idea. With so many brands to accommodate under the umbrella of the parent VF Corporation, finding the right balance would prove challenging.

Design & Development

VF Loop is a completely customized Office 365 intranet experience that was featured at the Microsoft SharePoint conference in 2013.

The Office 365 platform provided an ideal opportunity to bring the responsive Loop experience to desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Responsive design techniques allowed all content shown on the desktop site to transform into mobile- and touch-friendly information consumed on even the tiniest of device screens.
