Portlet Navigation Design

GSK required a portal navigation portlet that would allow community owners to provide links to important content, yet translated into 8 different languages, and role-based, so some menu items would only be displayed to visitors with the right credentials.  I worked with a .NET developer on this system, providing the usability testing, mockups, wireframes, and front-end code, while he managed the back-end database, controllers and models required to make the system work.

The chief requirement of this system was that the editor had to resemble the final interface as closely as possible, as previous iterations using explorer-mode “tree” menus failed to communicate the outcome to its users.
