Bajaj Finserv, India’s leading NBFC, was in the process of re-launching its intranet with a bunch of new and improved features and functionalities. Open, the new Bajaj Finserv employee portal, was slated to be the one-stop-shop for everything an employee needs within an organisation. Functioning as an information portal to know about products, processes, initiatives. To an engagement medium for voicing opinions, availing offers and consuming and contributing content.
The goal was to deliver a solution that would create an aura of dynamism and intrigue for the launch; while using visual elements to keep users hooked so they keep coming back to see more. The result was an asset that leverages mobility on an organisational scale; for a smarter, immersive and connected world on the move.
Make Open the go-to portal for employees to engage in conversations and stay updated with information about the organisation and its people. Through the communication, the aim was to make logging on Open a daily habit among the employees. The portal’s goal was to bring more people onto the platform and make them spend more time interacting; with content as well as their colleagues.
With the brief came the subtext. We understood that a brand like this had to shoulder the responsibility of being the voice of a 20,000 strong organisation. All the while being interesting enough for users to engage with it in the long term. The concept centres around the fact that Open is responsive, dynamic and interconnected. The identity has graphic interaction at its core, with varying visual elements mingling with each other and their environment to communicate the brand message subtly.
We focused on making Open a fluid, expansive and vivid experience for its audience. The logo sits at the heart of the identity and is integrated within the new system. To introduce dynamism and multiple playful elements, the logo was made to be remarkably simple. The typeface chosen was Avenir for its versatility and representation of the future. While the tone of voice was welcoming with the promise of information, relevant content, recreation, fun and rewards.
