    Hi Guys,

    This would be my version of skype. I modified the key visuals using ovals instead of symmetric circles. Used more the primary blue colour on the left. Collected all the main functions and clean up a bit the interface.

    What do you think?

      It always impressive when a single person does a better job than a whole team.

        That is just my personal concept, a whole team can do a much better job! Thanks!

        Really? I always think it's more impressive when an entire team that has to deal with reality, constraints, budgets, deadlines, and limited resources does a better job than a single person with none of that.

          The Microsoft team knows everything about their users, I know just my own needs, so they could do a much better job. This is a quick concept that can open new opportunities.

            This is the type of attitude that we should all take when approaching unsolicited UI redesigns. It's just a single person's POV, sans any data or design requirements that the Microsoft team may have. Not an indictment of their work, but rather a more aesthetic form of exploration. Nice job.

          While I generally agree, I've been on some teams with uninformed and politically motivated people in leadership positions. I've literally seen team leaders make terrible product decisions due to not understanding their reality, constraints, budgets, deadlines and limited resources. Just because you have the information; that doesn't mean you make better product design decisions.
