A new Windows 1o design concept on behance shows some pretty interesting concepts for the directions the UI might (and probably should) take. Starting with the start screen, the new reworked screen has more customizable tile sizes (large squares and skinny columns), which appear more interactive and colorful; with eye pleasing colors.
The start scree also has the clock and weather pinned to the top, while enabling swiping right and left between folders, files and search. Similar to the layout of the Windows 8.1 start screen layout.
Another big change is moving the notification/action center to the bottom of the phone, something that probably won’t work very well due to having to swipe up over the Windows Phone navigation keys. However the new action center allows scroll-able toggles, meaning we can finally fit more than the 4 (or 5 if you have a Lumia 150/1320) toggles. The notifications also look a lot cleaner with the colored mini tiles representing each app that has a notification, rather than writing the app name.
The full concept also includes changes to the App store, Music and lockscreen, adding a more “pastel” color layout to the whole OS as well a more “clean” overall look to the whole OS. Check it out at the link below:
