    Thoughts/Critiques wanted...

    Advertisement



    So I'm making my first theme for the Curve.. and have only made them for the 7100 before and that was a lot easier, as there were a lot of really good templates out there to just modify icons or whatnot..

    So here is what I ended up with.. i don't have it ready for download, but just some pics so far..












    For some reason.. I thought a nice wood floor would be clean.. I dunno..

    Thoughts? Things to change?

    Thanks!
    Brian

    It's simple but a clean look. Nice!

    There's a little white space above this image:

    Very nice! I hope you don't have to scroll to see more home-screen icons. One problem I have with some themes is sometimes you can't really tell which option you have highlighted, for example, in the fourth pic above. Thanks

    Hayden, thanks for the info. I didnt even see that gap. I swear I looked at it six ways to Sunday.

    Peterme, you dont have to scroll, its a ZEN them, so your most common incons are on the main screen, and the bottom icon takes you to you "desktop" with all your normal icons.

    Thanks for teh feedback. I think I'll load it up tonite, and test it!

    Brian, Thanks for putting your time and efforts into making a theme for the 8300 users. I like how it looks. Nice and clean. I believe that the hardwood floor is a great idea. Who doesn't love a nice hardwood floor.


    Regards,

    Maybe a nice glazed cherry wood theme like the inside of a luxury car with black trimming

    This theme is really good -- simple, elegant -- Since you have experiance with the 7100 series, why not make a version for the 7100 too? Backgrounds and colors and icons, but not Zen . . .I'd probably load it up! Good job!

    Well, most people prefer Oak and that wood looks Birch to me. So start over. Nah, just teasing, keep doing what youre doing and the theme will be well accepted. Good job so far.

    A nice mahogany, or walnut. Maybe you can get a nice parquet floor shot from a basketball arena, too.

    Re: Thoughts/Critiques wanted...

    Actually, the main screen is a bambo floor.. I like the light clean look.. I tried a nice real dark mahogany or brazilian cherry, but it was too dark to reed, and white or light text on it aliased and wasnt easy to read.

    The parquet floor is a good idea.. but that jsut screams Celtics to me.. and although from Boston, never been a Celts fan..

    Buth when I DO post it, I'll include some alternatate wood backgrounds for you to use.

    I like it, very nice and clean. That's what the Zen theme is all about.

    The Blue text with white border looks a little out of place. If you could make it dark brown - e.g. as if the text was "burned/branded" into the wood, that would look cool.

    Also the font on the delete button is hard to read. Changing it to a lighter colour (like the yellow (?) that is used in the highlighted menu item) would make it more readable.
