Let's take a look at this interaction design & UI/UX for a MacOs app named Mailcube, behind the app we have the team over Significa that believed that the email is not dead and it's all about how you treat this relationship. Right off the bat, you are introduce to what they called: faces where you can customize as you pleased through faces (categories) like messages, contacts, attachments and more. What I liked the most is the fact that your notifications are filtered and you can organize your emails by dragging a cube (kind of like creating a channel on Slack). You can join their private beta here.
Behind this design, we have the work from Significa, a creative studio based in Porto, Portugal. Currently focusing their work into interaction design and brand development. You should definitely see their motto through their work and it's about good design thinking that can answer almost any question and solve most problems.
Even though many of us have declared email dead, it's up to all of us to breathe new life into it. Let's face it: you're not going to stop using email, so, instead, why not work on the relationship?
