Klarheit.visualstyle v1.0



okay, here is my first visual-style for you. i always wanted to create one that is completely how i want a style to be, and this is the result... so, if you don't like it - i do (hope this doesn't sound too arrogant ;)). of course i'm open for any bugfixes / suggestions.

i called it "Klarheit", that's german and means clarity / clearance because that's what the style is - i didn't use some effectful gradients or spectacular light-effects, the style should be functional and still cute.
the color-theme in the style is called "ozeanblau" (oceanblue). maybe i'll release "Klarheit" in some other colors soon.

some inspirations came from the great bluecurve-theme and also from the opensource "tango-project" ([link]). i got the start-button, some caption-buttons and the icons in the xp-startmenu from there. that's why i recommend to use the visual-style in combination with the tango-icons (e.g. with "super turbo tango patcher") - looks great.
i put a wallpaper into the archive that fits quite well to "Klarheit" - it's from the human-theme, edited by me.

hope you like the style. please be kind and add this to your :+fav: favourites if you like it.
p.s.: enspia ported this style to windowblinds-xp: [link]
