PixelMill Completes Intranet Branding Overhaul for Merck Using SharePoint 2007

DAVIS, CALIFORNIA – September 14 2009 – Leading SharePoint design firm PixelMill completed a multi-month project for pharmaceutical giant Merck. The project encompassed strict UI branding guidelines and multi-language support for the North American, South American, and Japanese markets.
PixelMill’s first project covering Merck’s North American intranet was so successful that internal referrals were given to Merck’s South American and Japanese offices. PixelMill followed numerous specific style guidelines to create graphics and site layouts for the corporate intranet installation using SharePoint 2007.
“The Merck SharePoint project really showed the user interface flexibility built into Microsoft Sharepoint,” said Eric Overfield, PixelMill’s CTO and project manager for the Merck project.
“We were able to customize the standard SharePoint interface to match the look and feel of the external corporate website. Most employees who use Merck’s intranet won’t even know they are using SharePoint because the site looks like a custom built application.”

Anyone who has 'attended' a physical meeting by 'conferencing in' in knows the frustrations & limitations that come from not being in the room. You're the voice in the ceiling & not equally represented in the conversation.

This is no longer acceptable.


Today, we find ourselves facing the “hybrid work paradox.”

Employees are keen to retain flexibility. At the same time, human-to-human collaboration remains important.

To marry the best of both, hone your strategy, spaces, & tech to suit employee needs.


It's the day of the show, y'all!

Join the #PixelMillWebinars this morning at 11am PST for a live panel discussion about what the #digitalworkspace looks like for a #hybrid team, & how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.



Join the #PixelMillWebinars this Thursday as we welcome key players from @OrchestrySoft, @KieferConsult, and @AP_Mortgage to discuss the hybrid work paradox and how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.


We've all been itching to get "back to normal," but what does that mean? Are we missing out on valuable lessons learned by trying to return to something that perhaps wasn't working before?

Join us next week for a live panel discussion on the new normal.
