DesignHammer completes Redesign of StaffNet and NewsDesk for RTI International

DesignHammer Media Group has completed the redesign of two Intranet web sites for RTI International. The newly redesigned StaffNet and NewsDesk sites will be utilized by RTI’s nearly 2000 staff members; both at its main campus in RTP, NC and at its off-site locations. The two sites comprise RTI’s Intranet, providing online resources and news for administrative and employee services.

According to Lisa Bachelder, StaffNet Webmaster, “We are very happy with our brand new (and-much-improved) intranet logo and design. Professional looking, yet warm and accessible, the design’s form doesn’t override the main function of an intranet: to provide employees with the information they need to do their jobs well.”

Bachelder further added, “DesignHammer has been great to work with! Not only do they work quickly, but they work smart — seeking feedback and remaining flexible throughout the design process. Frank and David always responded quickly to our questions and concerns, and made themselves available for meetings.”

The completed redesign assignment was DesignHammer’s sixth design project for RTI International. The new designs are expected to deploy in June of 2002.
