Hi, my name is Matt. This is my work.
Go back to my homepage.
After our rebrand efforts and redesigned website were complete, my attention turned towards the rest of our product. Our control panel needed to get it's fair share of design attention, but it's a huge task. We decided to run an excercise on our login screen to help us refine a visual style to move forward with. The login screen is both a highly visible screen but not a really complex interaction, so it was a perfect place to start.
After stripping the content down to the basics, username and password fields and a way to reset the password, it was really easy to crank out a handful of options and continue iterating until it was bulletproof.
