Why we did this
CloudFlare's dashboard is massive, feature-rich, and highly-interactive. The tools are powerful and their controls and settings can be complex. Our team's overhaul of the Cloudflare dashboard made it infinitely more consistent and user friendly than our previous dashboard, however; it was still very grey, and very much an enterprise service dashboard. We wanted to integrate some color and life into the product. There were also plenty of instances where we needed illustration to either convey a concept, or liven up an otherwise blank empty state in the dashboard.
