My schema for the redbasic theme is coming along nicely, considering I don't really know where I'm going with it. Some of the blue tints coming from bootstrap are difficult to get rid of.

I quite like your basic direction, it's somewhat near what I'd do today.
I used to do a Friendica theme back in the days, long gone and I even do no longer remember what it looked like, which is a pitty somehow.
Thanks. I'm fairly pleased with the schema so far. I managed to get rid of most of the blue highlights now.
But I'm going to struggle to give it some polish as I've more or less reached the end of my design skills. ;)
