Hi there! This is my first ever go at a real UI design other than for informational websites. I enjoyed doing it so much! I'll be making more screens and widgets just for practice based on your feedback.
I was inspired by peoples designs on here and I was looking for any excuse to have a go at it myself, I thought, the Skype for mac is pretty bulky and clunky, I prefer smaller, simpler and neater apps.
It's not too drastically different from the current Skype, I didn't want to go too overboard since this is a first try at this style but there are some marked changes. Decided to axe the Skype home screen and social network side. There's plenty of other networks, nobody needs Skype to let out what they're doing and focused it solely on a communication tool.
I think the rest is pretty self explanatory!
I'm looking for feedback on the design. Do you think the spacing is okay, does it maybe look a bit cramped? What about how it works, would everything be apparently obvious what it did? For example the phone icon bringing up the dial pad, the skype logo taking you back to the Skype home, hovering over a contact would bring up controls etc.
Thanks a lot! :-)
