    Minimalist theme. There are a few out there, yes. But something really simple. Mostly black and white, with the exception of some highlight focal colors.

    Theme it, put your heavy markers in there and make it noticeable. Color is good, especially when you can mix several right....IMO

    I cant seem to find a thread to answer this ... so don't be mad at me when you post a link to the proper thread..LOL

    I want to learn to do the whole theme thing. Is ther a write up that explains to noobies like me how to change the icons and colors and all of that? I am currently running Chevysno1 SS4.4 I think it would be really cool if I could theme my phone to my own deisres. I just don't know where to start, nor what to do.

    Any guidance on where to start would be greatly appreciated.

    I do like simple stuff, but I think there are WAY too many minimalist themes out there. I like the color blue , astronomy and the moon - so I based my theme all around that concept. I suggest you think hard about what YOU want to see on your phone every day because even though you make themes to please other people, you may as well make one you really love to live with... Thats my plan...

    Have fun 9-patching! Haha...

    I am a color person and like lots of it. So my suggestion would be some kind of floral theme with pinks, purples, oranges, yellows, light blues, light greens, etc.

    I know that we have a lot of gals out there that this would appeal to since most of the themes available are very heavy and dark (i.e. reds, blues, blacks, etc)

    well ty for liking the skull candy idea i am a big fan of the headphones and are always plugged into my phone or psp and the background wasnt what i was trying to point out just the icons

    if i had the motivation i would just get the shadowbox image the trademark photo for skullcandy and make it a wallpaper lol

    like this would make an awesome bg
