Compact Email for Yosemite

I created this quick concept while reading Apple’s marketing material on their upcoming OS X update, Yosemite. I am really excited about the new user experience that is packaged in Yosemite. It looks like a substantial update to Apple’s philosophy of UI and design experience. While viewing the marketing images of the new OS, I decided to create a quick mockup of Mail. I imagined how it would look as a compact list of message for quick consumption. A quick drawer will pop out whenever you select a message. The typeface is Helvetica Neue and the icons are from Streamline Icons. The mockup itself was created with Sketch

Shown above is how the message notification would compliment the app. Okay, I think I am done with creating Mail mockups that will never exist. It was fun to piece this together and experiment.
