Sapien could be used with the standard human icons, or an entirely new set. Some of the information not on the palette is:
          Button/Scrollbar/Combo Corners are curved at 4px by 4px.

          Window Corners are curved at 12px by 12px.

I did the original in Inkscape, so it would be best to open the SVG with that program.

Very good work and concept. I would definitely help if I was good with gradients and transparencies. Really, though, this is the kind of theme people look for when they realize that themes are an option. Let me know if there's anything I can do- isitolian@gmail.com. -- PitrTMayhew [[DateTime(2008-05-02T19:23:14Z)]]

Nice, however I personally dislike it how the title bar's colours blend into the rest of the window. Transparencies would be great too. Otherwise, Nice job. -- Nicholas Kraak [[DateTime]]

Sapien

Sapien is a possible visual overhaul for Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex. The basic principle is to use gradients and transparencies within the windows to create a smooth, intuitive interface. Windows should appear as single units, as opposed to a collection of tool bars. What this principle means from a design perspective is using as few solid lines within the windows as is possible. Any contributions should conform to the palette I've provided, although I may update this to the standard Ubuntu colors eventually.

Concept

Sapien could be used with the standard human icons, or an entirely new set.
