Creating Browser Themes

One avenue that I’ve enjoyed exploring in relationship to photography is turning the art into a more interactive approach.

This started for me about 10 years ago with being able to customize your web browser to have a more personal touch.

Initially my first few themes were based off some tiled patterns that I had created to be for use by other designers on a website called Colourlovers. I created them in Photoshop and converted them into vector graphics so that they were scale-able.

After creating about 12 of these, I took it a few steps further in Photoshop to colour them and added some overlays, and resized them to the specifications of Firefox at the time.

Wild that my attention to detail still holds up even today!

Speaking of today, while pursuing photography then a design route, I’ve revisited this avenue once again to continue to support other browsers as well.


I’ll continue to create more in time once I find a piece of my work that I think would do well for a theme!

Create Your Own!

If you’re interested in creating your own themes, here are a few resources that I would recommend :

Themebeta.com – A WYSIWYG Editor where you can change the colours in a live view setting.
