Captain Morgan was very thoughtful in his design. The ad was easy to read and the purspose of it jumps out at you right away. He kept in mind the message as well as the feeling that I wanted to convey. I am a Hypnotherapist and it is very important to convey a feeling of confidence and professionalism. He accomplished this quite nicely.
Lorin did a great job here as always.

Catalyst Software has been around since 2006, with a new release is scheduled for this fall with major enhancements and improvements. It is time to significantly update the look and feel of the user interface, we do not plan to significantly change the functionality or navigation – but for sake of the design contest, we want to focus on look & feel (visual aesthetic) of the app. There are 8 screenshots attached as pdf, it is not necessary to address all eight (a sampling of three layouts is sufficient). Icon designs should be included as part of the project. At least eight from main left sidebar and a sample for planning, reports, and dashboard icons. We will finish developing a full set of icons ourselves after the contest provides the visual direction and style.
The colors are defined in the palette, we prefer bold colors used as splashes, and not as backgrounds. Cleaner & more contemporary than the last version.
Layout screen size: 1920px x 1080px
Color palette include in Word doc
Logo included in Word doc and png
We are looking for a significant refresh, that is fresh and much more current in style. Icons should be cleaner and simpler. This software is used mostly by nontechnical types, finance, operations, sales & marketing – so think apps like Office 365, TurboTax, Facebook, etc.
Have at it… have fun and don’t be afraid to push the envelope.
