One of my favorite designers (that I only know about due to his blog) is Jon Hicks and he’s just released an amazing Google Reader theme.
The theme cleans up Googles interface so that it makes a better use of the space and polishes it up quite a bit. Jon has re-worked Bloglines in the past and was hoping he’d re-work Google Reader eventually. I tried to create a custom theme for Google Reader once, but gave up a short time later. My CSS skills are good, but Jon’s are amazing.
The Google Reader theme is Mac like (which is one reason why I really like it) and very professional looking. A great makeover!
You can download the files and the install instructions from hicksdesign and have a fancy looking Google Reader in no time.
