Thread: [collaborative CONCEPT] Metro
10-18-2010, 01:41 AM #1[collaborative CONCEPT] Metro
Well, let me start out by stressing the fact that this is, as of right now PURELY A CONCEPT. None of this is even running on a phone yet, it is just a mockup I made in GIMP. \
I have always been better at coming up with ideas than implementing them, so I was hoping this could sort of turn into a collaborative project, combining the skills of everyone here to make this come alive.
NONE OF THE ACTUAL ARTWORK IS MY WORK
if anyone who is the creator of the pieces I am using would like it removed from this theme, just PM me, I'd be happy to oblige
the clock widget is from the free beta of Signature by Bluemetal (beautiful theme btw, you should check it out)
the icons are from a WinMo 6.5 theme by mobilitynews
Windows Phone 7 Series Metro Iconset v0.91 freeware for Windows Mobile Phone.
as I'm sure you have noticed, the concept for this theme comes from WP7/Zune devices
most of the design is fairly straightforward...it is designed to be a single page theme, with the dock containing a single "folder" (probably would have to be done with categories) that launches into an app launcher, and then the very bottom row of icons would be sort of a "dock" . I was thinking that the icons inside the app launcher would be all text, similar to the UI of a zune HD
the facebook RSS could probably be modded from an existing RSS widget (or made new, if someone is up to the task). I am gonna look into modding one, but I'm not too good at that type of stuff, so I don't know how far I'll get on my own
This is just a mockup, so obviously there are some errors, its just a rough draft. I know the icons wouldn't be that close to the dock, etc.
The icon pack can be downloaded from that second link for anyone that wants to mess around with it
Hopefully theres some interest in this, and we can get working on a really nice collaborative theme.

the icons can be downloaded from the link in my initial post
theyd have to be renamed to work, and i dont know how theyd work, seeing as i havnt actually tried any of this on a phone yet
havnt really done any work on this yet, still trying to find a suitable rss widget, and havnt had much time to focus on the hunt
just had an idea for this, but does anyone know if its possible to have larger than standard icons with the @2x inside the .app folders?
when ive tried it, it shrinks them down to the standard size
