Wayne Kramer's Super Minimal
Complete System Layout File
Added by Wayne Kramer | 2006
This is my first attempt at a PCF. I did a lot of testing and learned a lot from everyone else's designs, so thanks a ton for that. Clearly this design is heavily influenced by contest entry #3 so props to Brian for it. I have been lurking on Remote Central for the longest time and this is my way of saying thanks.

I have tried to do three things with this design. One, I found most designs to be visually overwhelming so I tried to keep this one as minimal as possible. There is a slight transparency to everything that allows a background image of my old Mitsubishi TV to come thru. Its supper subtle so, I didn't bother changing it when I upgraded my TV last year. Everything was created as squares and rectangles in Photoshop without any outerglows, embossing or drop shadows. I have included 2 PSD templates if anyone wants to modify or update an image.

Two, anyone can use it with no more than 15 seconds of tutoring. I have had the design evolve over the last 2 years and after countless guests and a live in girlfriend, I am very confident of the navigability and flow. I have also kept all of the back end config options of replaced remotes out of the design. I am the only person that will be adjusting the color levels of the TV so why confuse people with more options and I am willing to pull out the factory remote for those rare occasions. I have tried to put no more than 12 buttons per page. And every page has a background that allows the user to know what device they are in instantly.

And third, I wanted it to be beautiful.
