SharePoint design principles
SharePoint builds on the design principles that shape the Office and Microsoft product families. These principles help the design stay true to our product goals and user needs. The LookBook site shares the same principles as the platform.
As so, let’s have a look at them:
- Optimistic and fast
SharePoint is encouraging and supports fast and agile product experiences that work seamlessly on all platforms and devices.
SharePoint experiences search for what's possible beyond todays way of getting things done. We care about the needs of people not only today, but tomorrow — what and how they'll create and how technology can make their content have impact.
- Dynamic and alive
SharePoint experiences are dynamic and adapt to the creator. Allowing for customisation to express your brand and meet the needs of your audience.
- Accessible and optimised
Accessibility is developing an equal experience for all users that enables individuals to adjust their user experience to meet their unique visual, hearing, dexterity, cognitive, and speech needs. SharePoint believes strongly in providing accessible experiences for everyone, everywhere, and in optimising our experiences to reflect the needs of all of our customers.
- Authentic and useful
SharePoint stays relevant and useful providing tool, systems and capabilities to design and build sites that help people and business achieve more.
With all these new and improved features, branding your site becomes much easier. You can effectively express your brand on SharePoint, including logos, site name, description and leveraging brand colours. In fact, you can create custom themes and use them to customise your site.
The use of News effectively can also positively affect your business. On LookBook you can learn about News layouts and how to feature news on your site. Furthermore, SharePoint offers a variety of navigation options, configuration, and best practices for organising navigational IA. Lastly, to make the design organised, every business should use sections and columns. It is important to know how to leverage columns within a section to achieve different page layouts.
