Skype 💕 Office 365

The brief was simple - how do you make a Skype for Business client fit into the workflow of a typical Outlook information worker, but still make it feel like it was part of Office 365 all along?

Myself and the team took particular care to align typography, grids and even themes to ensure that the Skype app felt at home alongside e-mail, but also respected the environment it was in and any customisation choices that the user had made.
