Finally a good minimal theme for mac, you've made a wonderful guikit with art roots that hark back to the DE STIJL movement, and for that I thank you

Is that thing in the lower right of the screen your dock? And, if so, how did you get it be just text like that?

Anyhoo, nice theme.

Well he might have done that, but then he would have had to do that to every icon in the dock, and he has some work ahead of him should he ever want to put anything new in the dock. So I assumed he must have some application to do it for him. Or, perhaps it wasn't even the dock. That's why I asked.

@ skellington
You can read more about the icons here

@ deej5871
FB Eye is right, it's my idea of a Dock with minimalistic application icons. They're in the PlasterSTYL guiKit, and the separate zip file on my website contains about 35.

Wow, Very, very, very, very, very (x 100) nice. Great work, and thank you very much, nice to see the official first minimal theme on OS X.

Just to know, what is the font you used for the app text icons ?

Thanks again, and by the way, Happy bew year to all

Thanks for your appreciation.

Font : at first I ran tests with my favorite Eurostile and the inevitable Bauhaus. They are both (too) stylish fonts, but I finally went for Myriad Apple Text - that I consider neutral and minimal, yet well readable. Hope it works for you.

Oh, and have a great year yourself

The font is great, it works very well for me, but when I try to make another app icon, let 's say an X11 app icon, I cannot reproduce exactly your readability. Photshop and I are a little angry these times, .... :/

I'd be happy to make some extra's. Just hand me over a list of 3 letter codes.
BTW, this offer is open for others.
