Work Sign in, register and on-boarding

Sign in, register and on-boarding

Sep 2021 | The Guardian

When I joined the Identity team in second quarter of 2021 they were transitioning the sign in, register and on-boarding functionality from in-house to a third party platform.

The sign and register, on-boarding journey and a members area had been designed at different stages of development over the previous few years and as a result were visually disjointed from each other.

I started by auditing the flow of these pages and made a note of the different headers, typography styles, colour palettes and iconography.

The approach was to simplify design and create a consistent look and feel through the sign in, register and on-boarding stages.

The result is a stripped back design where functionality and accessibility dictate the visual language, without compromising The Guardian’s design style.
