Metrofy Thesis – A Free Metro UI Inspired Skin for Thesis.

What is Metro?

Metro is a typography-based design language created by Microsoft. Metro was invented by Microsoft Research in order to reduce noise from the UI and better focus on the content, relying more on typography and less on graphics. The apps that you see on Windows Phone use that design theme. Windows 8 introduces new type of application along with regular Windows Forms and WPF: the Metro style apps. Metro style apps have a brand new look and feel, run on a variety of devices, which you can develop in several ways, and also publish to official marketplace called: Windows Store. Others can buy your apps, download and start using them.

Connecting Metro with Thesis

When I saw Metro UI I had a vision to make it suitable for websites. I was busy sometime so couldn’t make it. After my exams were finished, I was free & able to do that kind of theme. I worked actually 4/5 days to make this skin for thesis.

This is how Metrofy Thesis looks.
