comment Do we need good-looking design for a program internal only to our company?
I agree with @HeikoG that it makes sense to polish your apps more than internal tools—apps often provide more entertainment value than utility, and you can win more users by providing more ‘polished’ UI (and having more users is important). While with internal tools you already have your user base—this makes things a bit different.

comment Do we need good-looking design for a program internal only to our company?
Agree. Having images and animations by itself certainly doesn't make interface more usable. You can make interface clean and easy to use without such measures, and without hurting performance or “user process”. And UI of an internal product, as of any other tool, definitely shouldn't be “grande” or “good-looking” if it means that the UI will attract more attention than helping to get things done.

That looks very close, thanks! I have no idea why isn't this approach more popular. It has never mentioned on ui.stackexchange or uxexchange. But it seems to really abstract the process, and mood board templates can formalize it a bit.
