"Modern Design" in general doesn't do anything for me. I see no benefit from the changes you made and would have been happy staying with the original design and having you use your time on more important things. To be honest, my clients are all established and they rarely, if ever, see the portal. Even of they did, not a needed change at all.
Thanks for the note. We're updating all of the software to have a new look and this is part of the redesign. There are a lot of new features coming in the next few weeks. Is there something in particular you're looking for?
