PaperCut is a company delivering a web-based application to thousands of customers world-wide. Our application controls and tracks printing and photocopying within an organisation. It is primarily used in educational institutions.
We're looking to design a new "Dashboard" page and refresh and modernise the look of our web application. We also aim to build a relationship with the winning designer for on-going design work through the application.
The application is primarily used by network administrators who manage the IT infrastructure. And must accommodate less technical users from time to time.
We aim to freshen and modernise the look of this web interface. We are not looking for a radical re-design in terms of layout (moving the elements around too much), but rather updating the look of the existing layout (e.g. gradients, rounded corners, background images, fonts, colours etc.).
This design is for a new dashboard/portal style page. The dashboard will contain gadgets displaying information presented in various formats such as graphs/charts, icons and text, lists and tables/grids.
Please present a concept design for this dashboard page and gadgets as mocked in the attached design brief. The brief goes into more detail and the design carefully address the requirements in the attached brief.
