It seems there is a need for a collaborative effort. There is already
another Wheezy theme effort setup in this way (Ice-Swirl :

Although, a quick irc meeting is helping interactivity and get things
started faster, I think it is a better idea to stick to the mailing-list
interface for ideas, comments and discussions.

Would you like to set this theme's development in a collaborative way? 
I mean not only feedback/discussions (i.e. mailing list) but design work
also. This would need a versioning system for people to contribute in.

I am no graphics designer, but have tried my hand on designing a few
logos/splash screens/wallpapers and I could help with ideas/feedback and/or even
some actual design work (time permitting).

I will be in #debian-desktop at irc.freenode.net 
on Sat Mar 3 20:45:00 CET 2012 (that is UTC+1 : Germany) for about 1h.
