You guys might remember i designed the Elegance theme (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=633043) I’ve been designing a new theme called ElegantSteel.
Theme is based around the Tolken icon’s (http://brsev.deviantart.com/art/Token-128429570) with elements from Ubuntu 10.04 and other Linux themes.

I’m opening this thread as a place for people who would be interesting in helping to contact me, my gtalk is firstname.lastname@example.org
You can find more information in the theme thread.
