Looking back

It’s time for a redesign! I have the summer holidays to spend time improving all past projects!

Any ideas for this project? :)

Photoset

My new design of Skype for the iPad, a few of my designs still need refinement, i.e. recent and profile. I shall be doing them today.

Photoset

The new Design for my full set! the only problem I have now is the Recent and/or Chatting slides.

Photoset

This is my first full set for Skype, I presented this and found that they were not fond of the layout, and a few of the slide frames. Viewers thoroughly enjoyed my focus on features and such but the aesthetics was unsatisfactory. 
Since then I have created a new full set for Skype, which even I find improved 

Photoset

This is my first re-design of Skype for the iPad, I’m keeping the Application layout landscape as Mircosoft’s XBOX LIVE iPad application is landscape and doesn’t change when rotating the iPad. I need to upload a newer version of these where the background has a slight gradient, again based upon XBOX LIVE iPad App.

I have only used two rows for the contacts for a simplistic look but when you slide along the extra boxes (if needed) shall slide from underneath. The next upload will include the other slides.

Photoset

Another Wireframe where I have based upon tabbed version of Windows Live Messenger.
Also the two blocks beside the conversation are online and offline slots to see who’s online and who isn’t. 

Photoset

Another Wireframe where I’ve tried to minimalise the amount of pages the user has to switch to. I have added an arrow to show the user who they are talking to currently. Another method I could use is just a different shade, if continue to use this wireframe I may use this method.

Looking at the Skype logos provided, current and window 8 logo version, I also googled at other designs then re-designed them myself for iPad and just as a general logo. I changed the colours for my re-design by using the log in Skype background colour.
