#013 – Direct Messaging
One of the biggest pet peeves of mine is when a developer or designer of an app makes the text boxes way too big for what it needs to be. The biggest thing I was focusing on in this design was making sure that each of the text bubbles was appropriately sized.
This UI design is themed around Tinder, hence the similar colors, but the Tinder message interface isn't very colorful. It's rather bland and white to honest. This design refreshes the look using the strong gradient, new font, and imagery in the header.
