Citus Data

Citus Data

Adobe Illustrator / HTML
Citus Data provides extensions to the popular database PostgreSQL platform.

The Challenge

Citus was about to launch a new version of their popular PostgreSQL extensions and wanted an engaging illustration for their homepage, as well as a new page to provide information to developers and enterprise users. Client wanted us to directly add the new layout and content to their existing Drupal installation.

Our Solution

We had to work quickly to meet the launch date, so a Slack room was created for everyone to collaborate in and give feedback and approvals on designs. We presented Citus with a few designs to choose from before completing the final product. We were able to add the approved design as custom HTML in the existing Drupal sites so Citus was able to focus on marketing their product launch.

Design Process

Design is inherently an iterative process, and even while on a short 1 week timeline to create custom artwork and design this new section section of the existing Citus Data website, Lotus worked in tight feedback loop with Citus Data.

Wireframes, icons and designs were discussed in real-time via Slack and Google Hangouts to ensure that the team had approval as quick as possible to design and prototype the deliverable for Citus Data.

Icon Design

As part of developing an easy-to-follow guide for new customers, Lotus delivered custom icon artwork to be used on the designs.


As part of this project, Citus Data also wanted an eye catching an informative illustration of their new data sharding product to be used on branding materials, including their homepage for launch. Lotus developed this illustration, which is animated on the Citus Data website as an SVG vector graphic with CSS3 animations.
