Read more about the design process

I was tasked with visual challenges during my internship at Gradescope. A fairly new startup, we recognized the need to visually communicate Gradescope's product to educators. As such, we decided that our previous splash page was clunky, had too much unnecessary text, did not fit the brand, and we needed a new design to boost user conversion rate.

Through multiple iterations, I decided that the testimonials did not seem to fit each section very well. So, each testimonial would have its own mini section. I also got rid of the header image that didn’t fit with our product at all and replaced it with a cute illustration.

And...the final iteration

About pages

To cover the case of users wanting to know more about what's written on the landing page, I designed an about page, get started page, help, terms of service, and privacy pages. Each static page contains a header at the top, containing the title of the page as well as an illustration. Underneath the header is the navigation for all the static pages. The page content sits below the navigation.

In addition, I designed a set of icons for the get started page, each illustrating its associated tutorial title.

Implementation

During implementation, I added a few bells and whistles such as landing animations and transitions. Before shipping the splash page, we styled the splash page to fit with our branding standards (color, typography, form style, etc). You can see the final product of the splash page here: gradescope.com and the about pages here:
