    Arrow Creating a new theme

    I want to create a theme because the ones in the 'store' I have found, in my opinion, don't look very good. There are a few that I have seen but I'd really like to have all the icons match, and have a background, and there aren't any I have found that have both those features.

    A small list of what I want;

    VERY simple icons: A green circle for phone, a red circle for texts, a blue circle for safari, an orange circle for iPod
    Select your favourite background
    No/short labels on the apps (I have 5 column, the titles literally touch each other)
    select colours of labels?
    slider for transparency
    Suggest apps to me (whoever designs theme) to create a matching logo

    If anyone has any cool ideas to fit in with this, I'll take suggestions. I'm looking for a simplistic visual but still able to navigate normally.
    Thanks to anyone who can make this for me or help me get started on how to make it, I will gladly give all credit where it is due. I await any response eagerly.

    For icons, you don't want to get too obtuse. I would say diversify your shapes a little more. Maybe a green diagonal line for phone, for example. White circle on a green square for message... If you work with the colors and shapes of the default icons, I figure users will have an easier time learning the abstract versions.

    I don't know ayecon looks pretty darn nice and it is far from simple.
