Hey there fellow Neowinians,
I have recently taken up creating custom Windows 7 start orbs, as I have found I can never find anything that fits my theme perfectly. I put them all up on deviantArt and take requests and usually have requests done within 24 hours. If you are in need a specific Start orb for your custom theme, you can Private Message me on here or on dA, and I will contact you when the design is done.

I do this all for free, as I am using it as a way to imporve my design skills.

If you want a specific design within the orb, supply the image or a link to the image you desire.

deviantArt page:
corporal-punishment.deviantart.com

Thanks, and hope to hear from you all soon.

Maybe you could make a start orb with the Neowin Logo?

Oh, this reminds me of the glorious days of customising Windows into "your own OS" complete with branding and custom visual styles. Oh, and most importantly, a modified winver. :p

I use a third party theme. I do not care for MS's Themes. I work hard at trying to customize everything. This used to lead me to a reformat with Xp but not so with Win 7. My current Icon is my start orb.

I wasn't implying anything or accusing you of anything, your post just reminded me of good old days, 'tis all.

I never said that you were, I just like to fiddle with Windows and sometimes it gets me in trouble or it used to. I do a full image about twice a week now.

Fair enough. It's indeed fun, I used to create visual styles back in the day. Although with the release of Vista and onwards the customisation community I used to hang with pretty much dried up, which is sad.

With Vista maybe but with Windows 7 it is going full speed ahead. Windows 8 may bring and end to it though. Mr Grim and Bull are still at it. :woot:

@Grinder, I've had the orb ready, but haven't had time to upload it, as it's been my birthday week and my friends have been taking me out every day.. Should have it done by Sat, Sun.

No rush, take your time.
