    These are some skins I designed and implemented for a web-based CRM product, I had designed and updated several CSS skins for this application, which look completely different yet follow 2 navigation schemas and share the same code base for the main window. Read Less

Before Sugar interface went all Web 2.0 and YUI'y in 2010, I was taming the hundreds of classes and code inconsistencies to create a coherent and clean interface. Actually tens of interfaces because Sugar had multiple personalities - below are some skins I designed and implemented for SugarCRM, version 5.5 circa 2008.
 
I had designed and updated several CSS skins for this application, which look completely different yet follow 2 navigation schemas and share the same code base for the main window. 
 
Unfortunately, there was little control over spacing or charts or placement of most elements. Other challenges included inconsistencies in code for different views (list view vs. edit view vs. home vs. calendar, etc.) and tables upon tables upon tables...
 
All of the themes allowed to increase font size and some had up to 6 color variations.
Love theme. A version of this theme was shipped with the very first version of Sugar, this was my redesign for Sugar 5.5
Custom theme made for Disney Company. Obviously, lotsa fun! I even made a cursor sparkle when one rolls over the header area (javascript). The character icons are displayed at random for different modules (I couldn't assign them permanently myself and this was only a prototype for demo purposes).October 2005.
A custom theme for eBay. Somehow those colors work - had some fun rearranging them in different views. November 2006.
One of the cleaner themes, "Bold Move." Very straightforward and very light-weight. Also multiple colors and fonts available. Showing the daily calendar view.
Bike theme - super red and super macho.
Golf theme - this was also a redesign for 5.5. List view is shown.
This European Union themed skin was designed for the main product but was never shipped. I had images from all participating countries displayed at random in the header.
February 2007.
Default theme was very minimalistic. There were 6 color variations of the color scheme for this theme as well as variable font size.
