There is a scene in the announcement video for our new Analysis service where we show the report arrive in your email inbox. For the video we knew we couldn’t use a screenshot of Gmail or any other real email service, so we quickly mocked up a fake one. For some reason it came out cat themed. I assume this was mostly due to Dave spitting out John Meowkovich jokes all week. Cats were fresh on my mind.
After the video was finished Jason and I continued to think about Meow Mail and decided to build it in our free time. We took a few nights and threw it together. The concept is simple. It’s an email themed, tumblr style, cat blog. It’s pretty stupid.
Also, I wanted to give a thanks to the creators of Font Awesome. We used it for the icons on Meow Mail. I have wanted to explore fonts as icons ever since I read this blog post by the extremely smart Zach Leatherman.
Introducing Meow Mail!
