Which brands do you think are the smartest about walking the line between professionalism and personality in their design?
Palantir has a really coherent brand. A bit vague on the content side of things on the website in my (biased) opinion, though!
They do have a reason for vague content, however.
The true nature and feature-set of Palantir's product remained secret (from the public) for years, and only came to light in a recent government data leak.
The content is probably meant to communicate their product core value to clients that already have an idea of what it actually does.
That's not exactly true. The reason for the vague content and the lack of feature-set is because there is no defined feature-set. It sounds like a platitude, but Palantir as a company is largely a philosophy of how to build software for certain industries, and an ever-growing ever-changing set of in-house tools to assist in constructing that software.
There's a really great Quora answer somewhere that describes Palantir as a "talent arbitrage" firm, and that's probably the most accurate description you could write. I'm trying to find it but having no luck.
That's pretty good insight — makes a lot of sense for a product with such a huge feature-set.
I really appreciate what Atlassian has done with their design systems. Super minimal in product but starting to branch out with some cool illustrations.
Nice list, sent screengrabs straight to Ember.app. This kind of inspiration is often handy, thanks.
This is a wonderful roundup!
I'm dealing with that same question––so many SAAS or B2B website look the same!
Here are some of my favorites I've come across either in terms of execution or originality:
These are also generally well done IMHO:
Tableau Software has great design.
