Next (and currently) I tried the blue variation of the i20 theme. Although I’m not much of a fan of the glossy, glassy appearance, the text formatting in this theme is quite nice – just enough spacing to make it easy to read large passages of text – and there’s not too many links/icons all over the place to distract you.
As always, I’m trying to achieve an ideal balance of:
- Simple, clean, modern style
- Easy to read text
- Clear structure
- Not too distracting/flashy
Which, I should point out, is not as easy as it sounds.
I really wish I had more artistic style – maybe I would be able to make one of my own – but sadly I just don’t have that kind of talent. I’m horrible at matching colors, and althoug I can use graphics tools like Paint.NET and Photoshop, I can only manipulate existing pictures – creating new ones of my own are basically beyond me (or, when I do try to do them, they come out looking very amaturish).
So, once again, here we are – trying a new theme. I’ll give it a few days – maybe a week – and see how I feel about it. But if you see it change again, don’t be surprised. Eventually I’ll find something that “fits!” (I hope!)
