Design done...

Hello again, so I believe I am 90% done with the base style direction and main UI components for O², and am currently struggling with my not so bright idea of dinamic QML colour pallets. 

Still overall I'm happy with the general visual direction of the UI style, it's IMO clearly derivative of Oxygen but today. 

Now having done 90% of the design and doing the serious work I know that the solemn work that will take far far more time is upon me and us.. 

So in the next week's I will be mostly focussing on the qml implementation that as already started and implementing a kinda Oxygen-demo UI showcase.

After that I have to do something even more difficult... That is to find a a icon style that does the same that the UI style above did.. bring to today oxygen of yesterday. And fix any of its issues...

It's really interesting to see this reboot of Oxygen. I recently switched to KDE on my main computer and being able to run classic Oxygen was one of my main reasons. It's still the most clear, nice looking and practical theme I have ever seen. Personally I would have prefered if O2 had more in common with Oxygen (more gradients, shadows and details, less flat), but it will be really interesting to see where you will take this project. I'm very interested in seeing what kind of icons you will use, for example.

The old oxygen created some problems in that the usage of Shadows prevented it a bit from Beeing really compact.
It's not a huge problem in Qt apps as a whole becouse we kinda struggle with very UI intensive stuffed apps, but one thing I'm really trying to do with this style is to allow for that think the office apps of this world, notice that in the mocks so far I normally show along side normal sized UI components, also small ones.

If they were very big decoration wise, it would be a problem...

So it's not only trying to make modern or "flat" it's more about making it efficient..

Thank you I kinda still like me old oxygen...

Careful with your logo, it is very close to the UK Telecom company O2's logo, their 2 is at the bottom not the top but otherwise very similar.
