Manjaro is great. Our Development team tries to do their best to get you the latest and greatest do your boxes. However we suck. Yes we suck at artwork (at least me ;)). Pushing code and patching software we are really great. However in style and artwork we might be not so great as we want to be.

So if you're an artist had want to share your work with us, we welcome you in our artwork team. If you have a cool wallpaper, share it. If you're good at Plasma5 theming, join or KDE artwork team. If GTK is rather your thing, join our XFCE, Gnome team and update or create a new theme for our editions of Manjaro. If you like icons more, well also good. Share your style with our artwork team and combine it so our main editions will look stream lined. If you're good in composing and more in movies or slide shows, also great. Our installers need some love in that regard. Also promotion of Manjaro with render artwork or short clips will bring Manjaro to the next level.

In short: You don't have to code to join us. Artwork and creativity is also a big part of this distribution. So take a leap and jump into our world!

@ManjaroCinnamonFan has developed two really beautiful new sets of themes based on Vertex, color optimized for Maia icon theme (it also fits very well Moka or AwOken icons), and @rabideau tweaked it for the use in Xfce 8)

The package vertex-maia-themes is currently on the testing branch and will arrive in stable with the next update, including two complete sets of themes (gtk2 and 3, metacity, xfwm4, gnome-shell and Cinnamon):

1. Vertex Maia



and
2. Vertex Maia Square with its cool square window buttons :D



Thank you so much for your contribution, @ManjaroCinnamonFan and @rabideau !

There is a serious lack of decent XFWM-themes.

So I've build a new one for the Arc-theme (light version) in OSX-button style
Build from the ground up.  With a heigher titlebar height (what is it with XFWM-themes that they always are so small???) and clear buttons.

See screenshot

In the attachment the XFWM4-folder (just replace the XFWM4 in the ARC-theme folder) and log off and log back in to see the difference.

Very nice!! :)
So now we already have metacity and xfwm4 for your arc-round-theme.
Do you think you will also be able to provide gtk3? Then we could make another complete package 8)

Well, GTK 3 is...a mess... Client Side decorations work or do not work according to which version you are running (GTK 3.14, GTK 3.16 or GTK 3.18 anyone???) And Gnome has the habit of changing things with each version. 

The author (the same one who created the Vertex-theme by the way) has a hard time keeping the Arc-theme updated.

So who am I to try to adapt the theme (which would only be a snapshot-version) if it changes continuously.

Besides, the Arc theme (at least on the Manjaro Cinnamon 15.12) is not always consistent. It just depends on the app you are using. The Vertex-theme -on the other side- is doing a much better job at that.

Today I installed Manjaro XFCE 15.12.  The Arc-theme  in XFCE is very good (accept the titlebar). That is why I created a different XFWM4 for it. 

For theming purposes, it would be ideal not to have GTK3 and CSD.  So I concentrate my effort on improving themes with metacity and XFWM adaptations.

I like very much the green color of "Vertex-maia" and i want to replace the green of "menda-dark' with that.
I tried with gtkrc file but I didn't find and didn't manage to change the green color that exists in the sidebar of thunar and of whisker-menu.
I like the dark themes (especially menda-dark) but i don't like so much the green color. I would prefer the green of Vertex-maia.
Can you help me please?

Here are about 100 vector wallpapers... they are all free to use (so far as I can tell).  I'll update the older as I find more.

Here's the xfwm4 version I helped  @ManjaroCinnamonFan and @oberon work on... I use the Moka icon theme.
