The Gwinnett County Public School district has over 176,000 students who sign in to their MYeCLASS portal daily to communicate with teachers, submit homework, access textbooks, and consume content. Parents log hundreds of thousands of hits on the Parent Portal to check their students attendance and grades. Thousands of teachers and employees log in daily to access their benefits, teaching resources, view their calendar, email, view analytics, log grades, and more.

All of these systems were housed separately and had their own respective sign in pages with different designs. In an effort to simplify and beautify, I designed a unified sign in page for all three portals, which has been used dozens of thousands of times every day since its inception. I worked to design a responsive, lightweight page with a pulsing title that validates form input and is backwards-compatible with IE8.
