Clean up login form with placeholders
I propose to replace the labels of the input fields with placeholders. The login form appears much cleaner and it works better with logo banners.

A login form isn't that big and people are quite used with placeholders because nowadays many login forms are designed this way.
I would argue that it's not a big deal, but I'm also concerned about accessibility issues for people who have to rely on a screenreader.
The idea with floating labels sounds very interesting. I think I'll give them a try.
