Sanctimonia VS - WIP by x1z0r Sanctimonia VS - WIP by x1z0r
Working on a new visual style for Windows. I've never really found a nice clean and professional skin before, well.. there are a couple of really good ones like Luna Element and Gui.Air but they aren't quite what I'm looking for - so I've decided to start work on my own theme. Aiming for something similar to OS X style here, although adapted to Windows. This is a WIP shot and obviously elements will be changed/tweaked, but I would just like to get some feedback at this stage - is this a theme you might use yourself if I release it? Is it too cold - lacks color perhaps? If you like the theme - is there any element you would change/improve? Feedback most welcome - thanks :)

So far, I like what I'm seeing. Can't wait for the release. One small change I would personally make is to make the bottom left corner of the Start button square, and not round, as round ones usually look strange on my LCD.

Keep up the good work!

Could use some color highlights. Def. blue or red. I like what dissembled said about making a version in black. Either black or a black & deep gray gradient. If you do, def. don't touch the window controls. Leave them silver for contrast. Then it would be badass.

Should also un-round the edges on the taskbar.

I LOVE the way you rounded the task buttons. It's like clicking tabs on Firefox. If I had any graphical talent I would have used a similar technique.

i recommend making the theme black. or maybe giving us a verision where black is an alternate substyle? black with the minimize/close buttons enclosed within the white box creates contrast, which imo, makes it very eyepleasing indeed. :cool:
