I recently finished designing a new user interface and small marketing site for Chicago based CMS (content management system) provider, Page Puppet.
The brief was to create something visually striking, yet simple to understand. I first came up with illustrations based on their tag line of "The most design friendly CMS on the planet" as a starting point to be able to create a visual theme that the company could use moving forward.
I kept the design of the user interface as clean as possible, as the CMS can expand to contain a large number of different modules. It is mainly aimed at small business and designers who want to manage their own sites, customers can use as little or as much of the module functionality as they like, so simplicity was paramount.
The guys at Page Puppet are working on turning the new designs into working code, the new CMS and companion site should be up and running vey soon. You can see more screens from this project in my portfolio.
