BBC News

Since 2010 I have been responsible for the design & development of the staff intranet for BBC News. The project began as a migration to a CMS-driven site and since then I have driven numerous improvements:

  • Move to a BBC GEL (Global Experience Language) interface, with a clean look & feel and common library of icons
  • Feature set more in line with user needs, including a People Finder (contact search) and the Newsgathering Phone Book; an interactive Find an Expert feature for journalists; and a portal into existing online journalism & production tools
  • Richer internal communications content including regular features and integrated RSS headlines from the BBC Editors’ blog
  • Interactive guides to Broadcasting House & BBC Parliament, studio guides and production resources
