Building a better way for students to connect with colleges

UChat is a live chat app for college admissions websites. Since the widget lives on a variety of websites, it's important that it's beautiful and flexible.

I designed and built a sleek transitional interface using Sass, Compass, CoffeeScript and Emblem.js.

The widget has to match schools' websites, so I used a neutral palette with a pop color that the school administrators can customize.

The widget interface uses a light skeuomorphic treatment to emphasize depth and spatial separation from the website underneath.
