Go To Meeting has been one of the primary video conferencing tools since 2004 and has been growing ever since. When they decided to redesign their user experience, they contacted us to guide them in creating a pleasant set of UI sounds to accompany their product. At the time they had a set of sounds that were very basic and really didn't distinguish them or represent their new feel that they wanted to communicate to their customers. They understood that with a growing user base and a more hands off approach to their UI that sound would be a key component to their product and how it delivers cues that guide the user experience.
The sound set that we delivered is a soft pallet of sounds that ease the user into the experience and softly remind them of their particular interactions. In order to do this, we created sounds that have longer tails and releases as well as light percussive attacks in order to avoid being overly intrusive.
