Reader Isaac Weston created this attractive, minimal Android home screen using bright colours and basic, flat geometric shapes.
Isaac lays out how to recreate the home screen yourself:
First time creating a super simple home screen. I’m using Apex Launcher, set to an 8×10 grid with no margin on the any sides.
I placed the widget as a 3×3 and adjusted it to a 4×4 to take up the amount of room I wanted it to. You could place it as a 4×4, I just do things a little strangely sometimes.
As far as the weather icons go, I used the Vos_CM9 icon set. I had to rename the icons to get them to show up. This was a pain and I don’t recommend it. The only reason I installed these icons was because I couldn’t get the stock icons with the Minate theme to show up.
That being said, if you like the icon I used above, an alternative that I’ve started using is the 1×1 Weather Eye widget. It has multiple icon sets, and, with the widget overlapping feature in Apex Pro, you can settle that widget in the same area as the icon.
For the home screen icons, I downloaded the Color Theme Pack and changed all of the icons manually on the screen by holding down on the icons, selecting “Edit,” and tapping the icon in the next window that pops up. You can then select an icon from a set you have installed or from your gallery. The colour Theme Pack should be available as an option after you select “Icon Pack”.
