Valentine's Day Themes to Sweeten your Desktop!

Monday, January 18, 2021 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Valentine's Day is approaching in a few weeks, and I thought it would be fun to feature some of the Valentine's Day inspired skins and themes here on WinCustomize.

Do you add Valentine's skins to your desktop?

The 2021 Colors of the Year

Monday, January 11, 2021 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Every year the Pantone Color Institute announces color(s) that will express the "mood" of the year. They have picked two interesting choices which are Ultimate Gray and Illuminating.

From their blog:

"PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating, two independent colors that highlight how different elements come together to support one another, best express the mood for Pantone Color of the Year 2021. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, the union of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is one of strength and positivity. It is a story of color that encapsulates deeper feelings of thoughtfulness with the promise of something sunny and friendly.

A message of happiness supported by fortitude, the combination of PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating is aspirational and gives us hope. We need to feel that everything is going to get brighter – this is essential to the human spirit."

I think this combination of colors would actually look good in some skins, especially a Curtains or CursorFX theme. What do you think about these colors for use in themes?
