One of the challenges we’ve had taking over Highrise is just refreshing the app visually. Most of Highrise has a timeless look and feel as a byproduct of all the care spent to create a tool that’s simple and essential. Nevertheless, some things don’t age well. Buttons don’t look right. Gradient or color choices don’t seem “modern” anymore.

So some past projects have been changed things like typography and avatars. Now, we’re super thrilled to deploy a round of changes that improve buttons and forms all over Highrise.

Menus and text boxes:

Buttons like Add a Deal:

And Add a Contact:

Even checkboxes have gotten a facelift:

Subtle but important. We and many of our customers spend all day in Highrise so it’s important these styles are pleasing. Hope you enjoy them. So far they seem welcome. :)
