Web Design

Yandex is one of the largest Russian technology companies, with about a hundred B2C and B2B services and products used by over 90 million people every month. Yandex has offices in ten countries with more than 26,000 employees. The corporate website is like a central hub for news from all Yandex platforms, updates on company products, as well as technical and corporate info. Our task was to refresh the corporate website style, visually unify numerous scattered pages, and create an easy system for sharing different kinds of information.

Main Page

The main page has a classic news portal style with a top screen displaying top headlines, a news feed, and a section for company job openings. The news feed supports various content formats such as videos, quotes, and statistics. Standard news cards, with or without images, are arranged in one or two columns, adding visual variety to the feed. To highlight particularly important news, we've added a "superblock." It can replicate a news story from the featured block, drawing even more attention. At the bottom of each news card, there's an icon of the Yandex product related to that news.

News

The news page is composed of numerous functional blocks: text, quotes, insets, comments, and photo and video galleries. We've added a "Mentions" block, providing detailed information casually mentioned in the text. To enhance the page depth, there are references to other portal materials  The "News" page serves as a kind of press center, more utilitarian compared to the main page, catering to PR professionals. News can be easily sorted by years and months. Within each news article, there is a button to download archives with attached materials.

Product Page

To simplify navigation across Yandex services, in the "Products" section, we used the logic of grouping them based on life spheres. A featured block is placed before the alphabetical list, which disappears when clicking on the search bar.When working on individual product pages, we selected universal solutions, which allowed for the description of both large and small services. We created multiple card options with the ability to add statistics, lists, icons, and links.

Collaboration with Yandex In-House Team

The client's Communication Design team proposed a project idea that required expert implementation on our part. In addition to working closely with Yandex designers, we collaborated extensively with their PR department. Together with the in-house teams, we refined the overall concept, and devised the structure of each page. It was important for us to maintain the recognizability of each page while incorporating non-trivial visual solutions.

Contacts

Yandex has an extensive network of offices in ten countries worldwide and its museums in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Belgrade. Therefore, we aimed to simplify navigation in the contacts section. In the top block, users can select a location, and it will display the contact details of the main office in that region. Below, there is a list of other offices with photos and a link to Yandex.Maps.

Event Calendar

On Yandex's events page, we've incorporated filters across several categories. Events are grouped by time, theme, and location. Additionally, we've added prompts for event registration and its status. If a conference, lecture, or meeting is happening online at the moment, it's easy to join them.

Other sections of the corporate website also contain a vast amount of information. To organize it compactly, we've divided pages into tiles, collapsing large texts under a "Read more" button. This principle is applied to the "Mission and Principles" and "History of Yandex" sections. In the latter, we've also included a timeline and the option to highlight significant events for each year by color.
