Zephyr is a new, password-protected MICHR intranet available to all MICHR employees across our two locations.

What it does

Zephyr puts resources such as logos, templates, policies, a data dashboard and more at MICHR employees fingertips, ultimately helping to break walls across different units through collaboration and interconnection.

My role

I was the interaction designer on Zephyr. I was also involved with designing and creating our information dashboard.

Our friends at Wagner Design Associates helped us out with visual design and development.


Non-existent design

Zephyr is used my MICHR employees multiple times everyday. They are looking for numbers, documents policies and are in that help them do their job. Hence the goal with Zephyr was to create a design that not only aids the tasks you want to perform but also gets out of the way when it has to.

Numbers that you can use

We had been collecting information about our organization frequently. However, because of a lack of good presentation layer, the information was not being used in our day to day activities. We designed and built an information dashboard that would help employees understand MICHR better, digest our numbers and even use them in day to day decision making.


We are all on the same time!

Zephyr is complete with a calendar that keeps all of us on the same time and also gets people where they need to be.
