First off - thanks to http://dribbble.com/vox for the invitation. Really appreciate it.
Working on a facelift for a web application that manages a store owners orders, templates, predesigned products, media, and more. All templates are customized with the applications product customization tool, to create on demand products inside the users store. The owner carries no inventory as everything is virtually managed within this web app. You can see our current version (attached) which is in dire need of an update, experience wise and visually.
Very initial visual explorations taking place right now, you can see we're using a top nav now instead of the side nav, which was taking up a lot of real estate that could better be used for admin related activities. Still tinkering with how that navigation system will display. Pretty sure the current state won't be final. Also implementing a notification system which should be very helpful for admins.
Contemplating the usage of orange which is the brands primary color. We don't want it to overwhelm the page, which is where the usage of grey like buttons come into play. Still working on the exact positioning of those elements as we're not completely sold on the white bar, but really depends on how much more data and options we plan to have.
One item not yet addressed in the comp is how admins will switch between shops and their instances. In most cases, there are hundreds of shops, but just a few instances nested within a shop. Current build has a drop menu which has proven to be very...painful.
The grid will have both thumbnail and list view...list is a normal table. Arrangement of details for each template will probably change...open to any thoughts.

Great work! I like it, Very clean
I think this is a solid start, your use type and color sets a good hierarchy. Have you tried sprucing up the button or sprinkling in a few icons to help with key sections? If you're limited to orange for color i think you've done a solid job, but the orange is a little overpowering in places.
@ted - yeah next will be refining buttons a bit. I'll see where icons may make sense. I may change the 'add to instance' from orange to another so it doesn't overpower the page. thanks for the suggestions.
Nice layout, that orange is cool :) Welcome
love the palette and grat layout!! Welcome to dribbble! :)
@Brian Nguyen Yea, I mean you have a solid foundation here, so I wouldn't suggest making large changes just because of my one suggestion. But I think a few subtle effects could add some contrast between orange things and clickable orange things, know what I mean?
Looks nice! @Brian Nguyen
@Ted Goas yeah, these were considerations I was thinking of tinkering with, so no worries. Definitely know what you mean.
