Description

HugoHUD
A minimalist theme with focus on typography and "keep it simple". When I started my new work, it was a very handy way of learning all the names of my colleagues function/form :) Due to popular demand (at work/friends) I've decided to release it. It's my first Adium theme ever so consider it a beta release. Anyway. Feedback or suggestions are much appreciated.
And the now obligatory; follow me on Twitter for updates: http://twitter.com/hugoahlberg

INSTRUCTIONS
Just double click both files to install them, then go Adium> Preferences > Appearance > Contact List: and select HugoHUD under both Color Theme and List Layout. Below those are some settings I highly recommend for best results:
  • Window Style: Borderless Window
  • Opacity: 0%
  • Automatic Sizing: check both vertically and horizontally automatic sizing.
  • Maximum width: as much as possible :)

And finally, in Adium> Preferences > Advanced > Contact List:
  • (Appearance>) Show window shadow: Disable
  • (Window handling>) Show the contact list: Below other windows

NOTES
The font in the screenshot is Gotham by Hoefler & Frere-Jones which is not included, but you can change it into whatever you want in Adium > Presences > Appearance > List Layout > Contact Font

In true minimalist form I have removed all icons, but user icons and what not is available on mouse over. And I'm using color coding instead of icons to display statuses. The default color settings works best on dark background, but obviously you can just invert the font color if you have a light wallpaper.
Think thats about it. Enjoy!

great job ,by the way I really like your dock...you have taken those pictures out already but I would like to know the name of your dock.Or a directory where I can pick docks but I'm interested text instead of icons. Thank you !

Thanks!
About the dock. I made it myself, inspired by someone else's work who also made text based icons (cant find the link!). So far I have only made icons for the applications I use myself (which isn't many). To release them I would have to make a whole set, which I might do in the future. I'll let you know! :)

do you have a message style that you use too? i like the minimalism of the contact list and want to bring that over to the message window :)

Downloaded, but using billieBarred font @ size 9. It all looks great! Also, I'd really like to know how you've done the text icons in your dock.
