Discuss is plain and simple an application designed to improve communication across different stages of a project in a fast and seamless way. A team working in single or multiple projects can communicate ideas and start discussions while being able to have access to an internal storage solution.
Sharing ideas, knowledge, and providing feedback between developers, designers, managers, and other areas of expertise can be held in a single place thus enhancing the overall team efficiency and productivity.
Functionality wise, all five panels are vertically scrollable and some of them can be interchangeable. The Sidebar is defined by a tab system (Menu, Notifications, Settings, and Close). In the preview you can see a list of projects that can be added, removed or modified on the fly. A tag section by colour codes provides an easy way to identify certain discussions related to a particular subject. And last, but not least, there is a milestones section that work as an informational system in order to provide a good overview of the entire project progress.
The Discussions List provides an overview of discussions by a pre-specified category in order to improve organization. The user can manage the entire section while being able to preview and participate in one discussion on the right Discussion Panel.
The Assets section provides a simple way to share files between different departments, or to drag & drop the files into a certain discussion (working as short-cuts). Everything is stored on the cloud and can be uploaded and managed directly in the application.
The last panel called Team works as a list of team members organized by departments. It may look like a chat, however, the main purpose is to provide easy access to the profile of each team member, to know their availability, to drag & drop these members in order to assign them to a certain discussion, or to simply manage their permissions. The possibilities are endless.
To finish, some of you may recognize some aesthetically and structural similarities between this concept and Slate. Yes, it was inspired by my own work, however, I believe each one has different traits and obviously unique features and objectives. As a funny note, it is exactly one year since I submitted that project, which gathered a huge amount of attention and I now highly appreciate all your support by submitting this "spiritual successor".
I hope you enjoy this concept as much as I have enjoyed designing it. More to come in the future.

Wooowww this is bloody solid mate. The consistency is amazing.
This is great Edu!
Even though, on closer inspection, the flow could be a lot friendler just by solidifying separate regions by something more obvious for people who dont have an IPS screen.
UI is loooking pretty neat and precise, what a big job!!
Wow, this is a classy looking design @Eduardo Santos
No feedback really, just awe. Wish this would come to life!
This is super clean, but It was difficult for me to find what is connected to what? I guess it needs better hierarchy or contrast between level of information. But super clean. @Eduardo Santos
Like @Kaushik V. Panchal said, I do agree on that too. I'd also suggest putting the 'team list' on the far right side in a different background colour so it is somewhat seperated from the project areas.
Nice job @Eduardo Santos !
Somehow I think the red kinda clashes with the rest of the colors.
Is every vertical section gonna have its own scroll bar?
Overall pretty nice. But lots of issues with the contrast..
You make me happy.
@Eduardo Santos magnificent work my friend!
Outstanding work as usual! :)
I agree with those above regarding hierarchy and contrast. However, I love this and would definitely use it as it's the most intuitive and functional project management tool I've seen. Well done!
Amazing work Eduardo! The first thing i questioned was the "x" next to the "New Disussion" button. Does it hide the menu bar? Naturally the red active stated menu button would already do this i guess?
You can easily tell that you have used A LOT of time working the whole UI out.. but as already stated; it feels really overwhelming at first. Though i am sure that is only a question about getting used to the UI, the system and everything. Then it will become very untuituve to work with i am sure.
very nice work, lots of data very well organized. What font is that large text?
I would say this is one of those cases that is a bit hard to digest at first (I somehow agree and disagree with the "lack" of contrast, but it was on purpose, each section has different degrees of importance ;) I don't want to bring the team section upfront that is secondary) but that would come later as very simple to use. That was my intention.
Thanks a lot for the feedback guys!
@David Kovalev Everything is Omnes Pro.
@Jonas Goth The "X" is to close the entire Application as explained in the massive comment I've written. ;) The sidebar is always visible, I don't want to have the feature to hide it. The "New Discussion" red button has nothing to do with the sidebar. Thanks! And yeah, I started working on this 2 months ago, not full-time of course. :)
@Owen Thomas I would somehow love to get your feedback on the hierarchy, I honestly spent a lot of time on that to make sure everything had proper spacement and contrast right were it was needed. I haven't made this on pure aesthetic appeal. :)
@Marin Sotirov I would love to have an explanation. :)
