Gmail

Concept, UI/web design

In this personal project I worked on a very simple redesign of Gmail's web interface. As someone with multiple gmail accounts, keeping track of which one you're using isn't the easiest with just the avatar on the right as a reference, so I've opted to make the current user/email prominent in the top left of the header (admittedly a risk as it goes against the conventional positioning of the user profile). This in turn moved the search bar lower which I feel gives it a better association to the inbox.
