Just when we thought that WordPress could not become any more impressive…..

As we all know, WordPress is a constantly evolving entity and with the recently introduced WordPress 3.8 update, offers a bright and fresh new look to the entire admin dashboard with a greater emphasis on user friendliness.

Say goodbye to a subdued appearance and a dreary shades of grey colour scheme and say hello to a bigger, bolder, more colourful design to help keep your company’s website at the cutting edge of design technology!



Modern Appearance

The newly designed WordPress dashboard offers users a fresh, uncluttered design which embraces exceptional levels of clarify whilst remaining an air of simplicity.

Updated Typography

To complement the new design a new typeface has been utilised. The Open Sans typeface provides simple, friendly text that is absolutely ideal for both desktop and mobile viewing alike.
