There are a lot of ways of making the façade of your website look beautiful. Actually, the vast majority of design solutions are aimed at the front-end. But if your website’s content is user-driven, the visual appeal of the admin panel is just as important.
Many content management systems have quite powerful and intuitive admin panels optimized and polished with dozens of fixes and updates, but they are still not perfect. But the main problem of default back-ends is that they are… default. You have no chances for creating a really unique design if your website is literally screaming about its WordPress origins, or whatever you’ve built it with. If you use a custom site engine, usually you have no admin panel at all, or it’s very basic, so you need to get a good one somewhere anyway.
A custom back-end can be designed from scratch (the most expensive option), or using an UI kit or a template.
Today we are glad to present you one of such readymade admin template designs – MonsterAdmin by TemplateMonster. It enables web-developers to create beautiful professional back-ends using hundreds of UI elements with modern CSS-based effects.
