One of the things that I hear frequently is that users *love* Workday's interface. I can see why, it's easy and intuitive to use and pleasant to view. So I'm quite surprised that they're bringing out a new version of it. Here is a preview, the left is the current version that we know and love and the right is the future version:
My initial reaction is 'ugh!' It's called the 'canvas user interface' rather than the landing page.
Why is Workday making this change?According to WD it will make for a consistent branding experience between desktop and mobile users. It will also allow for more branding by customers in mobile. On the plus side the blue that you see in the canvas can be customized in color, so if your key company color is red you can change that. Users will be able to set whatever color they want on their mobile devices however.
Also WD stated that the darker text will be easier to read.
