This is a special interest group dedicated to improving and expanding the Drupal theme system including theme functions and templates, CSS, markup, and how contrib modules add in their functions, CSS, and markup.
for example, we'll take stock of the location and number of CSS files and discuss if the architecture can be improved through emerging frameworks like Object Oriented CSS.
We will consider the questions "What do themers need from Core in terms of CSS? Module developers? SEO specialists?" and "What's new in CSS? What does Drupal support? What's the roadmap for CSS support?"
Here are theme system improvements or CSS/XHTML items in the queue that could use the eyes of designer/themer-types.
- Allow customizing themes from the UI
- Add $classes to hook templates
- Refactor page (and node) rendering
- Allow Inline CSS in drupal_add_css
- Allow external CSS in drupal_add_css
- Allof CSS files to be altered (hook_css_alter)
- Add numeric weight to drupal_add_css

Earlier this week I launched http://cs4party.com to promote the celebration our Los Angeles Adobe User Groups are holding for Adobe. I used Strata 3D, exported to H.264 video which I converted to FLV with Flash CS3, and made a SWF header to play and loop the FLV video. Zen was used entirely, so I have a cs4party sub-zen-theme that is literally my first public Zen theme, ever. FYI, the site is Drupal 6.

How much of the theme development time do you spend solving problems in Internet Explorer 6 (IE6 rendering bugs)?
At Drupalcon Szeged, I had some discussions with the documentation team and the usability team regarding workflow for getting their feedback injected early into the core development process. I'd like to start a similar discussion here with you folks.
Drupal 7 with its code freeze date of "When it's ready" represents a great opportunity for us all to collectively "kick it up a notch." Key to this is involving many more people in the core development process than we normally have. There are always several relatively minor core patches that affect themers in the queue at any given time, such as add $node_classes to node templates, as well as huge, over-arching efforts such as administration theme in core.
But unfortunately, a lot of these patches stagnate and die, because designers have not traditionally been a group of people that we've served particularly well. I'd like to see that changed.
I'm at the documentation sprint.

How about thinking about this.
Garland has had its time, and it starts to really hurt my eye.
Sure going for a recolorable theme is a given necessity.
I opt for Pixture, as I see it is very popular, and also because it looks "Joomly" (this may be a reason for people to NOT use it, I know ;) )
In is actual edition it has layout tables, but I'm working on this flaw with someone. Sure I'm not totally out of hunger for personal fame, but more importantly this would get away from the "Drupal looks like Garland" opinion.
Maybe this is already discussed and I'm only missing it?Read more
I created a Userstyle for http://cvs.drupal.org with Firefox (and the Stylish plugin), and I wanted to share it with the community. If you're interested, you can download/install it here: http://userstyles.org/styles/9338. Before and after screenshots are also attached.
For those who don't know what "Stlyish" is, it's a Firefox plugin that allows you to change the appearance of any website/page, by overriding the CSS. You can download it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2108

To give you Ideas, the Presentations could touch the following topics:
- Theming for D6
- Design matters in General
- Cool drupal modules for designers
- Best Practices and effective strategies in theming
- Showcasing the theme of a great site and how it is built
I currently help the UM student chapter of Habitat for Humanity by providing support for their website (http://umhabitat.org). I set up a drupal cms for the group, and the site functions well for their purposes. Unfortunately, I have very little artistic ability, and even less graphic design sense. Therefore, the site uses the standard Drupal theme. Would anyone in this group know a design firm (or individual) who may be willing to donate their time to develop a theme for the site? Please feel free to email me at email@example.com. Thanks for your help!
