Here at Showcase, we are continually impressed with the variation and innovation of what our custies do with our platform.
We have such a wide range of customers that we want to take the time to display some notable mentions that you may or may not have heard of, or some design styles that may interest you for future rebrands or rebuilds!
This months Customer spotlight is: SeedForce

Why we love their showcases
Seedforce has created a very consistent and stylish series of showcases, that carry their branding throughout which is immediately recognisable to their customers.
Continuity in branding is super important and is one of the basics of good design. You want your showcases to look like they're coming from you!
Apart from the obviously amazing pun that carries throughout (unBEETable, anyone?!) the showcase design itself is simple and understated. The benefits of this style of design ensures their showcases are easy to navigate, customer friendly, and straight to the point.
Simple background boxes or tabs keep text to a minimal, and also sets out the main menu clearly. The branding and colour palette are also continued through the showcase menus through clever soft focus photography as backgrounds - a great way to amp up a background as opposed to colour blocked colours.
Design and Showcase tips to take away from Seedforce
- Keep things consistent! Carry your brand throughout your whole showcase.
- Minimalism packs a punch. Less is more if you want a real focus on your content and ease of use.
- Puns are always appropriate.
- Think about how you're laying out your showcase. Think about how many tabs are on each slide - can they be split into submenus? Are all tabs on that slide necessary? Packing too many hotspots and tabs onto one slide can look messy and be confusing for the user. A great way to get around this is to sufficiently wireframe out your slides before you build a showcase!
