Back to the roots - Novus for Windows 8


I was playing with the idea of updating my Novus visual style for Windows 8.

Novus was a well received visual style for Windows XP and everyone has been wondering/asking for a port for Windows 7. Since it was based off of the Watercolor theme from the XP Beta's, I intended to keep it for XP only. Now that Windows 8's new desktop UI is also based off of Watercolor, I thought that I might as well make a mockup for a possible Windows 8 version of Novus.

This is part of the result and I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

Here's a link to the XP version of Novus:
