Skin idea - Simple BMW Red
So I'm close to starting my install, and I was shopping around for skins. There are some awesome ones out there, but I can't seem to find one that fulfills the following requirements:
- Big buttons
- Often used buttons located at left side of screen
- Big song/artist text for what's currently playing
- No mini visualizations on the main music-playing screen
- Inspiration from a BMW E46 dash
I'm brand-new to skinning, and from what I've read I think I understand the concepts, but I'm not an artist - so I've created a skin mock-up in Powerpoint (ugh). I'm very interested in getting everyone's opinion on the design and layout, and even more interested if there's someone out there that's good at making skins that would give it a try. Here's what I've got so far:
Day version (maybe):
Simple, big buttons, all red at night, and hopefully will end up looking like it matches the rest of my dash. I thought about making the text use the LCD grid font, and I still may (since other areas of the car have similar-looking fonts), but I thought I'd try this first.
Let me know what you think, and if anyone wants to take a shot at producing a skin from this.
I did something similiar for my VW.
