Designs that users will encounter often tend to (and need to) fade away into the system itself, leaving behind only the content users came for. iMessage link previews, in my opinion, qualify and then some as beautiful interface elements that themselves do just enough to be visually clear and gorgeous.
This design sample replicates the iMessage preview from iOS 14—can you tell we’re excited for WWDC ‘21? This version is a simpler one as it doesn’t include the tail on the bubble.
Check it out in Dark Mode too.
