Themeleon, from ColourLovers, helps you pimp your Twitter layout with some nice patterns and really cool colors.
ColourLovers is famous for the fantastic collection of graphic palettes, color tiles and the many design elements that are presented in a much friendlier way. It has become an expectation that whatever ColourLovers touch would get the same light of quality and usability.
Well, they haven’t disappointed our expectations with their new product Themeleon. Themeleon is simple web app that helps you customize your Twitter profile layout on the fly.
It just takes 3 steps to customize your Twitter page. Login to your Twitter account through Themeleon page. Then choose the colors and background patterns you want to use on your Twitter page. Save your profile and your Twitter page should now have the new look.
When you login to your Twitter account you’ll be asked to give ColourLovers permission to access your Twitter profile. “Allow” access to ColourLovers.
Once you return back to the ColourLovers page you’ll see that your Twitter profile was mostly grayed out except for the “Design” tab. There are 2 sections on this page that’s of interest to us.
The top section sets your Twitter profile’s background picture. You can choose from a whole bunch of predefined templates or you can browse to your favorite pattern. When you choose a pattern and if you just don’t like certain colors you can use the color squares listed below the pattern to change individual colors. You can also use a picture as your Twitter background. If you like a pattern but don’t like the color combination then you can Themeleon’s “Shuffle Colors” button to shuffle the colors until you arrive at your favorite combination.
The next section allows you to set the color preferences for the text, links, sidebar, sidebar border etc. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of choosing individual colors you can also choose color palettes which comes with colors for all of those sections.
Themeleon packs a bunch of features which are very simple and straight-forward to use but at the same time they are powerful enough to deal with the important pieces of a Twitter profile layout. I’ve tried couple of others and I’m going to stick with this for a while. I hope you find it useful as well.
