Disney's Global HR Operations Training Module Deck Designs
As a Professional Intern for The Walt Disney Company, I worked with the Training Team at Global HR Operations. My main project was to design the title pages and companion pages for the digital training modules they were developing for new Human Resources employees. The modules were developed to train the employees on the software systems Global HR Operations uses on a daily basis, as well as procedures and policies they must become familiar with when dealing with Disney employee inquiries. The theming for the pages came from the logos, colors, and overall look of the systems the modules are meant to teach the employees about. In total, I designed the title pages, companion pages, and text layouts for over twenty different modules. Here, I have provided examples of some title pages and companion pages of my favorite modules.
This module is for a program system called Forms Inc. This program uses characters and images from the Pixar film Monsters Inc. throughout its various pages. I took two of the most prominent images within the system (character Mike Wazowski and the closet door of his human friend, Boo) and drew them using Adobe Illustrator.
This module teaches the learner about the various segments within the Walt Disney Company, and outside of the company, they will have to work with as a Global HR Operations employee. The speech bubbles are meant to represent two different segments coming together to collaborate and create new solutions.
Bridging of Service
This module teaches the learner about the Bridging of Service policy within the Walt Disney Company. There is an entire section on this policy within the employee handbook. I took inspiration from this section of the handbook and applied it to my designs for the module's pages. For example, the teal colors I used for my designs actually come from the colors used on the Bridging of Service pages within the employee handbook.
For this module, I was given a small, low resolution logo to recreate and use on the title page and the companion pages. I found this to be one of my more challenging tasks, as the logo was almost indiscernible. Nevertheless, with the help of some teammates, we deciphered what the logo was, and I was able to successfully recreate it. Because of this feat, future employees will now be able to recognize the logo, and have a better understanding of what the Workbrain system is.
Kenexa is another system the employees implement often. I drew inspiration from the emphasis put on the "x" in Kenexa's logo. This is how I came to the basketweave-esque pattern seen on the title page. The rest of the colors come from within the Kenexa system itself, with the addition of the navy blue, which is the blue Global HR Operations uses for their branded materials.
SAP is a system the Global HR Operations employees have to use everyday. For my designs, I incorporated SAP's logo as well as the colors used throughout the SAP system. The idea behind this is that if the employee sees the logo and colors from the system within their introductory training, they will be more likely to recall what they learned when using the system on the job.
