Recently we just wrapped up a series of demos and talks on customizing the new Silverlight 4 themes and project templates to make your own unique and tailored design solutions. Here is a brief overview of the content demo'd in the first of these series of talks that I did. I will be blogging to give more context around how to design great apps using these themes and templates as starting points.
