Inspired by the video The Quiet City: Winter in Paris by Andrew Julian, I immediately felt the urge to use this beautiful landscape of Paris in a cloudy winter morning. This is what I ended up with.
The basics here; an ethereal wallpaper, some actually useful and beautiful widgets and a hidden "social" dock & task bar.
To recreate this you'll need the following:
- The wallpaper from Wallbase.cc
- The XWidget customization platform.
- The CPU & RAM charts and the Minty Search Bar from the xwidget gallery.
- This tweaked version I made from the Typewriter widget.
- This tweaked version I made from the Blue RSS widget.
- RocketDock to make a "social dock" with some simple round icons I made.
- The font I'm using is Helvetica Light Condensed
I really love this set up, its simple, useful, an inspiring. You can check the version with everything showing here
