Grain & Mortar - I rally like the idea of having a sidebar with all the different main categories as it's much more user-friendly and organised.
These ideas are what really inspired a lot of my ideas. I really like the simple login section and the colors. For my project I would be using the Orange and White login. The user icon and the key icon also add a nice look to the login area. The orange box beside the SIGN IN text works really well also and will be implementing them in my own project.
Another color scheme I would highly consider is blue and white/silver. I really think the colors work well together and the username and password logo off the side of the box area works really well, I like this.
I like the idea of the orange and white theme and I like the white and orange circles. The silver/white color will always work well with orange.
e06f32 - Google Search - This will be the hex value for the orange shade that I would consider using, I think it works really well with white/silver and even black.
This is the font chosen for the system, I think it looks well and is computer related. It's also modern and easy to read.
When suggested to add a search bar, I went for a simple search icon and added it to the right of the search bar.
