Google Hangouts

One place for all your conversations

As Hangouts started to emerge as a distinct product from Google, it also needed a new standalone site. 

Hangouts is available on many different platforms, which created a more complex story to tell. Using big photography and embedded video, we made a beautifully immersive website. Additionally, we had the chance to create some crazy awesome GIFs.

Strategy

One app for everything

Hangouts works across many devices, and you can use it to send texts, chat, video chat with groups or make phone calls. We wanted to make sure we showed the product across multiple devices in conversations with many different people. Hangouts was built to be fun (video chat pirate hats?), so the intent of the design was to show how much fun Hangouts could be.

Good times We made sure motion, photography, and icons all had a fun, playful aesthetic.
