After searching for a decent Google chat app to keep in touch with my colleagues in Hong Kong we were unable to find anything that didn't either look incredibly ugly or barely work. I decided as a little weekend/evening project to have a go at putting something together and this was the result of half a week of evenings feverishly hunched over Photoshop by moonlight.
Further explanations are on each annotated slide but there's plenty I havn't explained fully in terms of interactions and animations. Perhaps I'll try to figure how to show those later... Anyway, I hope you like it.
If anyone wants to develop this with me, get in touch!

for (possibly) more updates and general design shenanigans.
