Crimson is a new theme by Cocky Culture. Tony from Cocky Culture has some really nice themes, and this one is just as unique and stylish. There’s a little bit of everything in this theme. It’s dark, colorful, and with the skull and the swords making the cross bones, it’s sharp and alluring.
We announced the theme earlier, so I decided to try it out and see what I think of it.
I installed the theme on my BlackBerry Tour 9360. After installing the theme, I did the battery pull as recommended. The theme is really nice. You can almost hear the music from Pirates of the Caribbean and taste the rum. It’s dark red with the skull and a pair of swords crossed behind the skull. The battery bars are in the top left in red and GPS in white, the signal in the top right is in red, and the ev or 1x in white. The alarm sits as a white symbol in the mid right. The time and date are in black in the mid right as well. The bottom fringe paper-look and top are a purplish color. It resembles a curtain or old paper in front of a fire with the red glowing through. The bottom row of icons is customizable. What I really like about this theme is that I can hide the bottom row, just like Conquest, another favorite of mine from Cocky Culture.
Options brings up the fringed paper look only the red is at the top and bottom, the purplish brown color in the middle. The icons are nice too. The icons are really nice, red outlined in black fringe. As you move your cursor, it becomes a steel ring that encircles what you’re pointing over. It reminds me of chuzzle even.
If you click in messages, the highlight is red. The top ribbon is red fringed. The menu is smokey grey with white lettering and the red stripe highlight.
I have to admit, Cocky Culture is a fave because I love the effort put into the themes. Especially Conquest. I like the styles and the unique art. I really like this theme, it flows nice, does not sacrifice battery or memory to have a theme, and it’s giving your phone personality. If you’re looking for a dark theme or a pirate theme, look no further, your search is over. The theme is available in the BlackBerry Sync Store and normally is priced at $4.95, but there’s a sale until Sept 25th!
