Themes for WPF

Themes is a great way to customize look and feel of your application and an easy one too. You can customize them or design your own but designing your own theme requires a lot of expertise and time.

Doing a custom control theme in WPF is no small undertaking. theMatic (currently very-much-in-alpha) hopes to take some of that pain away, especially for smaller teams that don’t have a dedicated designer, or for quick apps that you still want to give that ‘custom’ touch.
