The Linotype Frutiger required font, is the "NEXT"? (are many frutiger fonts, I don´t know which to choose.)

GREAT VS!!!. Using forever.

Hi Lennard!
Could you make a grey-buttoned version of Magnesium3? I know, TiSkin has grey buttons, but I think Metallurgy is softer and better. ;)
Metallurgy is more suitable for every day use.

That would kindda break the theme, but you are always welcome to play around with it yourself ;)

Okay... :(
I would do it, if I could do it.

Stylebuilder has a recolor tool that makes this much easier ;)

With the updates this remains one of my all time +favourite styles. It continues to have that professional feel to it and is possibly the only "complete" style of its kind. So many have attempted "metal" styles.. but not one has come close to this quality.

Exceptional ..
