iGraphite by TomRichter iGraphite by TomRichter
I am happy to present iGraphite, my new skin for windowblinds 7, a crisp and elegant yet simple theme for every day use.

When designing the skin or in fact when thinking of what I could do I remembered some Ubuntu styles or even Mac. These stuff are very elegant.

This is my attemt to bring some fresh feel by the minimalistic skin to your desktops. Let us hope I will succeed.

The links for wallpapers being used in the preview:

Old Grass by juliekoesmarno

Naturelle.WP by Bobbyperux [link]

Lost Sea by relhom

All I wish is that you will enjoy this skin as much as it is possible.

Thanks for any comment to leave here or any faves and download.

Yours Tom

This might be the first dark theme that I would deem "actually usable". Thx.

Yeah he's doing a nice work every new theme of his is always better than the past ones, some1 may like the overall design or not, but the detail and precision of his skins is fantastic, I think Tom reached the level of vstyler(John) regarding precision to detail, very very good work.
Both of them working for years now and supplying us with their fantastic works!
We can just bowl and say TY :)

This is a wonderful visual style. I liked it a lot, there's small touches that I really appreciate, like the semi transparent stroke and the small colored titlebar buttons.

One thing that I think that is good but I would like too see different is the start button, I think that glyph is too "organic" for the theme, maybe something like the iG or an neon arrow would fit better.

Again, great work :)

Dani, thank you very much. You know very well, that start buttons in general are a real pain to me. Such a simple think mostly kills me. I will perhaps need to ask you for help on my next theme if you will

Thank you, Skillet98, my friend. That all is about a practice. When starting with skinning it was a real nightmare to me. I am glad that after some years I can make my ideas come true and even faster. This one took me for about 24 hrs split into a week time frame. I can remember there were times when I needed months to complete anything...

Thanks a lot, Gary. I had a terrible period some months ago. Nothing special crossed my mind about skinning. But when watching some ubuntu emerald skins and old xp skins by amaeli or even the Mac, I was talking to myself that it would be great to create some minimalistic but fully working skin for windows 7. As to myself - I love it. It ainīt special but for the every day use this one might be a good choice :D Hey, Gary, I am hoping allīs fine with ya, buddy. I wish I had more time to be talking to you. Bye mate.
