Part of the upcoming ::Modish:: Suite

Thursday, December 14, 2006 by DigitalCHET | Discussion: Suites

I've almost finished work on a set of cursors based on WB theme I have in the works.
I've just got to polish up a few things on the animations before it's complete. In any case I'm considering releasing this as as a complete suite rather than the piecemeal approach.

About ::Modish::
The ::Modish:: WindowBlinds skin is an attempt to create a skin that, while conforming to some extent to the Windows Vista glass look, still had a sense of newness or originality to it, which evidently is still elusive since it has a art-deco kind of look to it. Therefore concreting what fashion is really about: reinventing old ideas for the modern world.

It's also an attempt to see if I can make a complete and great looking skin overall.

Here is a preview of the WB skin itself:

And the CursorXP:

Feedback is most appreciated so feel free to comment and critiqué as you feel led.

I do like this new theme you are working on - soft , pleasing colors- and different.

I dont think I would use it for my daily use (i am a developer) but overall, quite pleasing.

The Logoff/Shutdown buttons dont seem to fit the rest of the theme - colors seem a bit out of place.

Very nice work. I would certainly use the WB and cursor set. The only real critique I havew on the WB is that I might recommend maintaining the diagonal curved and squared coerners on all eliments, all the sections of the start menu as well as the program windows and dialogs. But I can't be sure without having seen it both ways. Like I said this is very goood and I would happily use it as is...

Will you be carrying over the cursor look to the toolbar buttons as well, or what do you have in mind for that?
