The public-facing homepage is a primary entry point into the Microsoft Office ecosystem.

Working with a feature crew in conjunction with partner teams, I simplified the page design, added clear calls-to-action, and helped create a personalized sign-back-in experience.

The new design resulted in a 20% lift in the sign in rate and a 6% lift in engagement.
