Digital dashboards play a crucial role in websites and apps. These dashboards present key information that its users need to see in a convenient way as possible. Dashboard designers must think about how to present such information, where to place them, what graph to use, etc.
But just as it is important to know how to present relevant information on your dashboard, it’s important that you have an eye for design. Unless you’re working on very technical dashboards, you’ll need to build a dashboard that is visually appealing as well.
In this article, we are going to show you some of the best dashboard inspiration you get. At the end of this, we hope that you found one dashboard that will give you inspiration for your project!
Without further ado, let’s get started!
If you are building a progress dashboard like Journey, you may want to keep it simple and clean – but not dull. Choose lively colors for your buttons depending on your dashboard’s purpose – if it’s a personal finance dashboard, fitness dashboard, etc. – just like Journey. A simple design with well-chosen colors still makes a great and beautiful dashboard!
If you are building a dashboard for financial or investment websites, take note of SRTDash’s dashboard. It is simple and sleek, but it manages to show key information for the potential user.
Also, although this is a financial or investment dashboard, see how lively the colors are – just because the theme is “serious” like finance or investment does not mean you’ll make a dull color out of it.
If you are building a demographics or analytics dashboard, you can get inspiration from AdminLTE 3’s dashboard.
First, as always, look at its color – color choice can make your dashboard lively and dull! You can also note how the dashboard conveniently placed different information types into one window. You can see right away how many orders did you have while simultaneously looking at where your customers are coming from.
On this example, Withings’ dashboard apparently monitors the physical stats and activity of the user on a given period of time such as heart rate, sleep, etc.
While most dashboards relaying this information tend to appear somewhat “serious”, Withings’ dashboard is a good example that you can tweak the design, make it more lively, and still be able to properly communicate the information the user needs or wants.
This looks like an interactive dashboard, showing you your progress or results whenever you add input into it. In a way, this can work as a progress dashboard as well, showing you how well you did on certain activities (or how well you did on quitting them).
Note also the drawing – it makes the dashboard livelier!
This dashboard can be a great inspiration if you are creating a “world-tracking” type of dashboard such as tracking from where customers of an e-commerce store are coming from. Take note of its sleek design, but best of all: there’s a blog section above. You can offer your users relevant articles while they track their data.
Many booking dashboards are pale and dull, but Booking Central’s booking dashboard is an exception! Take note of lively color schemes; this is just an example that even as dull as a booking dashboard can be made livelier by great design!
If you are working on a booking dashboard or any travel-related dashboard, take inspiration from Booking Central’s booking dashboard!
Yarnell dashboard is simple, sleek, and very organized. It shows that you can be organized and even technical without losing touch with design.
Just like many in this list, Yarnell has a good color combination, making the overall dashboard very interesting!
Yarnell dashboard can be applied to projects like e-commerce, freelancing websites, team communication platform, etc.
Flat Able is a great combination of color scheme and the amount and quality of information presented in the dashboard. This dashboard is another perfect example of making dull information interesting by just choosing the right color schemes!
ArchitectUI’s dashboard is another good example of an analytics dashboard: well-placed data types, good color combinations, and a little drawing to make it livelier. This is a great example of what you can do if you only tweak the design and add a little creativity to a rather mundane and dull dashboard!
