Mac OS X Syrah Concept Brings a Flat Look to OS X [Images]

Mac OS X Syrah is a concept by Danny Giebe that brings a flat look to Apple's desktop operating system. It was inspired by the new clean design introduced in the Contacts and Notes apps of OS X Mavericks.

The new Finder represents the new clean design of OS X Syrah. The colors are based on the flat design of Contacts and Notes in Mavericks. The title bars are translucent and support a more clean and iOS'ish design. All icons are following the new flat design approach.

The new Messenger design is combining the flat Mac OS X and iOS 7 design.
