UI Design Exercise
This is an UI design exercise. The goal is to take a software or application and to re-design it in a different style. In this case, Skype was re-designed using the guidelines of an old Mac iOS. This exercise trains the eye to closely look at details of a GUI design. Subtle patterns, gradients, and elements are discovered while at the same time the understanding of the design's consistency in terms of spacing, underlying grid, color scheme, etc grows.
