The IBM Collaboration Solution's Design team has created a new, modern, visual design language for IBM Connections. The new Connections visual design creates a modern, airy, and less cluttered appearance by updating many items on a page, such as lists, forms, buttons, and icons.
This application uses Connections Customizer to apply the new design language to IBM Connections. The Customizer technology allows the new visual design to be layered on top of Connections, thus overriding the visual design prior to displaying it on the screen.

Part 2: Visual Update 1 Side-by-Side Look
We periodically release updates to fix defects and add styling to more applications and pages.
Visual Update 1 delivers an improved visual design but it also serves as a basis for you to make your own visual updates, such as change to use your company colors. Follow the link that best fits what you want to do.
Cloud customers can install the Visual Update 1 for IBM Connections application from the app catalog in only a few clicks.
On-premises customers can download these files, unchanged, and create a Customizer application in their registry.
Both Cloud and On-premises customers can download these files and use them as a basis to further customize Connections. For example, you can apply the new visual styles and also update the brand colors used.
