I was asked by the mighty Google to participate in the launch of the new artist themes collection for Google Chrome, available for the first time on their website. The artist theme collection showcases over 100 leading artists, architects, musicians, illustrators, and fashion and interior designers from around the world who took the standard Google Chrome design and created their own unique version. In their own words:
“Our group of contributing artists come from a variety of styles and genres in the world of fashion and music. All of these individuals have demonstrated creativity and innovation in their field of expertise, and when taken together, appeal to a variety of users. The collection of artist themes for Google Chrome displays a spectrum of creativity and variation to inspire users to customize their browser in a way that reflects their personal style.”
This was an exciting project to work on, recreating all of Google’s elements and rollovers while adding my own colorful touch.When it comes to program interfaces I use, I tend to like things very clean and organized which doesn’t take away from the content. So when it came to my own browser theme, it was challenging to add some pizazz while keeping things as basic as I could. The navigation buttons look different then my original design, will have to look into that.
I would like to thank all those at Google for making this possible. If you would like to check out the Signalnoise theme as well as many others, go to the artist themes collection, the Chrome blog, the Google blog or the official Google Twitter.
