I wanted to recognize “RORI” a very talented artist who is active in the Android theming community. I came to know RORI through his work on the CyanbreadX theme he developed for roms using the T-Mobile theme system.
The CyanbreadX is based on the Cyanbread theme for Android phones running CyanogenMod7.
Beauty is subjective but take a look at just a couple screen captures from the CyanbreadX theme it exudes style and elegance. CyanbreadX is but one of several RORI designed themes available on the Android Market. Some of the other themes developed by RORI include GreybreadX, Honeycream, Phantom, and ADW Smoked Basic Theme.
RoRI consented to a brief interview detailed below:
(TH) Hi Rori I appreciate you participating. I happen to run across your Cyanogen theme, CynabreadX and was really impressed with the overall look and feel of your effort.

(TH) How would you like to be identified
My real name Robert, RORI is just the name I use all around the web and I kind of got used to it and like it.
(TH) What is your professional background? Are you a professional artist?
Well nothing with computers. I am in performing arts, film , theater and in my free time I like feeling like a little boy who wants to know how things work.
