no official name, yet. I have put together concept art for new sections of the skin. DigitalHigh has been working hard at making this thing begin to materialize. We are only a few days in to this project and would love suggestions for a name for this project.

Here are the concept mockups for the music section. As mentioned before, this skin will be designed around fanart, but more importantly on simplicity. Less is more, is the idea we are designing everything around. That is not to be confused with less options, because we intend on implementing everything you expect a modern skin to include and maybe even a few things you haven't seen before. I hope you all enjoy the new previews.

Also, if you have name suggestions please leave let us know.

Simplicity, eh? Hmmm...that's got a nice ring to it. Although...isn't there already a skin with that name? I may be thinking of Winamp.

And I see where you see a similarity between this skin and that other one. Only difference is, ours is going to be centered around the menu bar. The majority of the functionality of the skin is going to be all in one place...

Yeah I was just pointing out there is another skin going for the same low impact and large fan art. I hope you both do your things seperately so I have a good choice between two. Wink

agreed about the two skins. similar ideas and i hope we can live up to the quality of what the other skin will be. Anything done by a member of team razorfish will be great. Mediastream is still one of my favorites. hopefully myself and digitalHigh can make something a few people will come to love. That is my only goal for our first skin.

Simplicity does have certain ring to it. Simple and to the point. Too bad focus is taken, because we will have everyone using this skin focused on one menu bar. It should be interesting to see where this thing goes.
