[SKIN] Experia - thoughts on making this into a skin.
#1
Lightbulb 
Hi guys!

I'm working on an idea for a new skin for xbmc. The skin draws inspiration from the various skins allready available (primary: Welo, reFocus). I have just begun to learn skinning so I hope this turns out well, heh. The goal with this is to make it as simple to use as possible, but with a nice clean look. I have posted some early mockups in this thread, so that you can see what's on the drawing board atm.

Ideas are welcome.
Cheers!

Note:
The skin might change later in design - these mockups is only to get the idea of the skin, but I will of cause implement as much of this as possible.

Mockups:


Home Screen:

Settings + OSD:

Movies:

"Experia View"

UPDATE:
Experia skin has gone into developement, for more info, please use the link to it's thread below, thanks.

A little more information on what it will look like. Just going on the one screenshot, It seems like the main view is a movie info screen

Sure, I'm working on those. I made this view cause I think it's a good way to go throught your content. But there will be other viewtypes, like wall, list etc. Smile

This somehow reminds me on the welo skin. No offence, keep the mockups coming!

Great a new skin idea and it looks really good so far especially those weather icons.
U did make them yourself? And maybe try and make one mockup full resolution 1080p so I can see how it would look on TV. Smile

OK since you are using Evan Brooks Token icons it's a sure bet u didn't make those weather icons either. I guess it's fine, but doesn't show your skill as graphics designer.. Or maybe it does.

Yes, the icons are made by Token. The same goes for the Settings Screen. Since they are free to use, would it not be more than an honor for him that I use his amazing work? Wink I have made the mockups with iWeb - Can't afford the "real deal", and no i'm not into Photoshop. Either way, it's still my own idea for a skin. Smile

does it matter? designing your own weather icons is pretty overkill when there are so many resources available. as for icons, they are also widely available and a free to use. im sure the skinner will give credit to the creators.

it seems your putting the designer down by picking at such trivial things. im pretty sure 99% of skins use icons and weather icons from somewhere.

should the skinner be designing his own typeface too?...


as for the skin its looking good, i like the movie info view with the trailer window. keep up the good work, more skins going into production the better!

I'm sure it would honor him and they weren't made by Token. Token is the name of icons. Smile

@krish_2k4
I said it's fine, just not as "wow" like I first thought and that's why it may have sounded negative, but that comment was just about icons. Also I already said the general idea and looks are good.
