Placker can enhance the visual representation of information in your projects, making it easier to differentiate cards based on categories such as status, urgency, and due date.

This article provides ideas for applying visual enhancements to your boards.

When starting a new board from scratch, it will typically appear all grey, which does not effectively utilize colored visual representations and may be perceived as dull by some team members. Here is an example of a board primarily consisting of text data:

While this example is clean and may work in certain cases, it can also be seen as a blank canvas with the potential to be more vibrant and visually appealing.

This can be accomplished by including a board logo and a background color or image to the board settings, in the overview tab.

Another way to go is to add elements to individual cards, such as:

  • Labels

  • Members

  • Traffic light indicators

  • Covers

A board that incorporates these elements is often more enjoyable to work with and easier to comprehend.

However, be cautious not to make it overly colorful and complex. The goal is to strike a balance between meaningful colors and a clean design.
