    This is a breathing mockup preview.
    What I mean is that it's nowhere near a working state yet.

    My goal is to avoid touching xmls in order to keep compatibility @ a maximum.

    A lot of themes have been dark lately, I'm on a crusade for white!

    Wow, that was cheesy.

    It's ok if you don't like this, its not for everyone.

    Oh, and there is no timeline for release. Please don't ask. I just figured I'd throw out some early screencaps (yes, these aren't just PSDs) to gauge appeal and interest.

    Interesting start.
    I like the DE elements/look so far.
    A bit too bold for my own likings, but the idea is sure to be a hit when finished!
    Lots of potential!
    Keep us posted!

    I agree, there have been so many dark themes. This is certainly a welcome change to what has been out there. I'm excited to see where this goes.

    Interesting concept. I wonder why Red & White though? Were you going for the colors of the Knights Templar or was Assassin's Creed an inspiration? Either way, I like it thus far. I don't know why, and it's probably just my monitor, but the red and white make it a very bright theme. I do like that grey background wallpaper, perhaps a little more grey in some areas? I don't know but I would like to see it get developed.

    Looks good Kov...I like the clean simple look of the icons! I've always been a dark theme guy, but something like this would definitely get on my phone. Look forward to the release.

    No, I hear you on it looking bright on the monitor. On my main screen, the red is literally screaming. On the phone however, its obviously bright, but not over the top. I actually stole the color from Google's suggested color palette, believe it or not.

    And there will be more grey in some areas due to my not wanting to change xmls. I did a test with folders today (the ones you add on your homescreen) and there's definitely some situations where I won't be able to utilize white or red in order to stay true to my commitment of avoiding xml editing.

    We'll see how it goes.

    And yes, I was going after a Knight's Templar for some inspiration. You may seem some of that pop up in later areas that I've yet to theme and that are still theory in my head.
