Simplex by inbox
hey there, I've been working on an update of my favorite theme (Simplex Energized) for personal use. I am not a coder or designer so it took me a few weeks of patience and dedication.
I wanted to put emphasis on Movies and TV shows sections prioritizing simplicity and clarity in lists views, fantart views, media icons and OSD´s with a few changes including the typography to Helvetica Neue and a "flat" design.
I would like to share with you. Hope you like it!
PMC version can be download it here:
It is tested on PMC although it seems to be ok on PHT with the recommended skin mods. Anyway (in this moment) i don´t know if it is stable on PHT over time cause i use PMC now.
