OverView

After the Office suite shipped in 2012, the leadership at Microsoft took a hard look at their enterprise focused productivity offerings and made a call to appeal more to consumers. Our team created an app to help families get organized, which leverages many of the company's existing tools and put them together in a more meaningful way for these users. We relied on ethnographic research to help us understand what these families needed most, and carried that understanding from early ideation to the final design.
