Admin dashboards are an integral part of almost any web-based service or product. They form the area where users can interact with a product or service via a password-protected login stage.

Prominent examples include WordPress, Stripe, and Shopify. They typically include a significant amount of options and editable content. As such, the designer of an admin dashboard is tasked with incorporating these options while maintaining usability, design consistency, and simplicity.

When executed to a high level, the results can be stunning and present some of the very best examples of user interface and user experience design.
