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.

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.
