Daily UI 013 - Direct Messaging

Today for day 13 was the first day I've really felt the struggle designing these prompts. For a direct messaging app, I've kept the design simple and heavily inspired by other popular direct messaging applications on the market. I've definitely treated today's prompt as more of an exercise in recreating a popular UI style for this prompt than pushing boundaries and trying something new. I think this is what I needed to avoid getting burnt out with the challenge and by constantly trying to innovate.
