17: [ACS - 06] NewtonMail made in India loved by the world with Umesh Gopinath

Today I have Umesh Gopinath with us on Audiogyan. Umesh is designer, blogger and Amateur photographer. He is constantly thinking, observing, learning and trying to find simple solutions for everyday problems. Currently he is heading the design team at Newton Mail which got acquired by Essential this year. Newton mail is a wonderful pretty looking email client which is built in India. Today we will be speaking with Umesh what went behind the scenes and get some insights into his interesting design philosophies.

Questions

1. What is Newton mail and whats so cool about this mail client?

2. Why another mail client?

3. What were the key goals set to make this product?

4. What was the process & challenges of coming up with a design language that is OS agnostic?

5. What according to you is the coolest feature about Newton that was driven by a design team and is almost invisible

6. What is the process of taking product and design decision of what to build and what tot junk at Newton. For eg: You killed the sent folder.

7. What is the future of Newton? What is the future of email since a lot of stuff is happening on WhatsApp, Slack and Short messaging format?

8. Last 2 questions are personal.

    1. On your website, you say that you are inspired by Dieter Rams, Jason Fried, AR Rahman, BLJ, Vandana, Vikas & JP. What is the common thing you see in these people that you get inspired?

    2. I guess you believe in "Less, but better" design philosophy. Can you tell us how and why this philosophy resonates with you?
