We have a system which is currently in development, it's called Web Apply and it allows students to apply directly for courses online.

The system is due to go live soon but I had one major concern with it.  The look of the application is dated and old

The application is 100% width, something I've never been a fan off.  The colours look dated and everything just looks squashed.

I wanted to create a fresh and pleasant environment, clear from clutter and simple after all potential students will be looking at the application.

Below is my initial draft

The application now looks fresh and clean, warm and inviting.  

I've updated the Web Apply logo to coincide with the branding of the college and removed the horrible brown. Overall I'm pleased with the refresh of the application and no doubt I'll be tweaking it from time to time.
