It's been a while since my latest work posted here not related to mobile phone themes. I'm not actually satisfied with customization limits on latest nokia mobile os nor on another handsets like android or smth.
Ok, the original idea i first came up with in late 2007, i've been working hard on Salamandra vista vs for tune-up utilites contest, i don't remember which place i got, 4-5 or so. I really loved the idea of high-contrast and catchy on eyes yellow and black style theme so i decided to make full GUI kit consisting of Visual Style, IM theme, S60 mobile phone theme, even Thunderbird e-mail client theme lol, and.. a Media Player skin. The first concept you can see in my gallery under "Salamandra Media Player WIP" title. I brought into life the mobile theme partly as Nokia Trends Lab theme. Instant Messaging becomes just a tool to communicate not to look at it the whole day, sometimes it's not. E-mail client for now is just an interface opened in browser, much depends on e-mail host. The last is Media Player. I had no experience to complete the wip concept in the beginning, through these 5 years it stayed just as unfinished work.
The original draft was drawn during some weeks on the go listening to music in my ears. Sometimes it's really painful to put the idea on paper because it's always hard when you do something more related to yourself, you don't have any limits. You like this and this, but you can't combine them both at the same time. The final draft was drawn and the base shape rendered in 3d. This shape later used as a reference in illustrator. When the original digital concept was done i opened it in photoshop and during some days i had a happy time with it
My goal was to use all space as much as i can, make it maximally functional. The idea was always in my mind these years and i'm really happy to free it.
Enjoy & And sorry for the grammatic mistakes, my English gets horrible
