Art direction / UI Design
User Interface design for Mac versions of the Microsoft Office applications – Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Entourage. The challenge was to align the look and feel of the applications with the latest Mac OSX operating system without compromising legacy functionality or disorientating existing users. The solution was primarily to re-skin the applications to look like native OSX applications but also required extensive redesign of the toolbars, rulers, dialogue boxes and widgets. The project involved working at the Microsoft campus in Seattle with a team of software engineers.
