When I joined the team, the Rice HR website was designed using table‑based layouts and fixed widths. The structure of the site was loosely based on team specialization.
A high page per session ratio and low time spent per page hinted that visitors not familiar with Rice HR had a hard time navigating the site.
By defining user personas, a simpler structure based on user needs emerged. The new structure improved site metrics, demonstrating that users are finding what they need easier than ever.
Using modern responsive design methodologies, the redesign conforms to any device and screen size. Also, it features a cohesive, familiar visual identity across the site.
