New slick login page

I think we can all agree the default MySource Matrix login page is a bit naff.
With the release of MySource Mini, there was a nice slick interface introduced which included a new default login page template. Recently, Squiz "back-ported" a nice add-on for MySource Matrix. This add-on is the Easy Edit Suite. This add-on is only certified to work properly in MySource Matrix 3.28.0 and above.
If you are running 3.28.0 then I highly recommend that you download and install this add-on. Instructions and a download link for Easy Edit Suite are available online in the new Squiz Manuals website and easy to follow.
Unfortunately with this new slick edit interface, there wasn't an improvement to the default login template. I believe Squiz are going to add this in the next version, however I could not wait and took the liberty of making my own. Example below.
To get the same working on your site you will need to download this package, and configure a Linked CSS asset and a new Design parse. The new Design parse file will need to be customised to use the Linked CSS. I have included all necessary "mysource_files" images in this package.
