Little Big Details: Breaking Down One Piece of a Product Redesign

To show the intentionality behind and impact of seemingly tiny product design decisions, I want to break just down the most important piece of the interface: the message box.

Yesterday, we launched UX3, the third version of Throttle’s web app interface. Here are the three versions so far:

Throttle receives all of the emails you want to keep but that don’t belong in your inbox. It’s important that these messages are easily scannable, so you can see what you want to open and read, versus what you don’t care about.

Let’s look at the redesign closer up. You can see a number of strictly aesthetic changes here, but I’ll hit a few of the functionally intentional choices made.
