This blog post is a continuation of last week’s blog post on well designed JIRA sites.
Based on our recent survey, we summarized a few tips on how you can jazz up your JIRA site.
- Logo – A logo helps to establish your identity and branding. The size of the logo should be between 50 to 90 pixels tall to be sufficiently big and yet allow enough working space on the screen. It is also possible to use a banner graphic as a logo too.
- Header Background Color – Try to use the same header background colour as your logo’s background color. You can use a color picker tool like Colorzilla.
- Navigation Bar Background Color – Likewise the navigation bar background color should use a different shades of the same color. The navigation bar text color can be changed to white or black to match the chosen color.
- Introduction Gadget – A short writeup to introduce the purpose and usage of the site to first-time users will be useful. Links to a quick guide or contact email address will even be better.
- Gadgets colour – The color of the gadgets in the system dashboard should ideally match with the navigation bar background colour
- Links to other sites – Some organizations will add links to other auxiliary sites like their corporate website or wiki. This enables the users to surf to other sites easily within all the JIRA pages.
A good design helps to establish a corporate branding and brightens up the user’s day. You can reference how other people do it with our slides and JIRA’s guide on customizing the look and feel of JIRA.
And do drop us a comment if you have revamped your JIRA sites or come across any well designed JIRA sites. We love to share it with the rest.

Have you ever wondered
- Who uses JIRA?
- What are they using JIRA for?
- What content do they put on the main dashboards?
- How do they jazz up the look of JIRA for their users?
We got curious one day and ended up with lots of screenshots of nicely designed JIRA sites. And the best way to inspire more people to jazz up their sites and make JIRA more user-friendly is to show them how other folks are doing it. Hence, we decided to share 100 sites from the set.
This week, we present the first 50 sites. We will put up the second half in next week together with some tips on jazzing up your JIRA site.
