Your Recognition
IBM YR (Your Recognition) is a community committed to improving employee experience. They approached us to rethink together a way to elevate the exisiting design.  


1. For the Honouree
Recognition page is designed for IBM employees celebrating work anniversary. We wanted to design an experience that will make them feel appreciated for the work that they do.

We felt that illustration help make this experience more personal. What we didn’t want is for the illustration to drive the whole experience. We wanted to put the focus on the content (messages, images and videos) contributed by the people. For this reason, the presentation of the content had to look and feel different from the illustration. The message board for example, is minimal and bold, contrasting from the illustration. This gives content more hierarchy.

2. For the Contributors
The contribution page is designed for the employee’s managers and co-workers to contribute their congratulatory messages, and photos and videos. We felt the step-by-step approach was a way to minimize the the perceived effort of contributing. It allows the end user to know exactly where they are in the process, and approximately how much time it will take.
