Messages on OS X Mavericks is a nifty feature that lets you chat on any Apple device seamlessly, but its design could do with a facelift — and this is what the designers behind record player-style music app Turnplay have done.

In a design concept created by Ramotion, the Messages app gets a much cleaner interface, with a color scheme that is aligned closely with OS X Mavericks — basically it blends into the desktop.


Ramotion has also imagined smart indications for statuses such as uploading media, typing and receiving messages. The app will also automatically filter and sync contacts from your address book into various categories, and sync media and messages instantaneously between all iOS devices.
