Xbox Growl style

Here it is my new creation, Xbox growl style.

Some weeks ago I saw this picture in Engadget web page and since then I wanted to create a similar notification style for Growl.

After checking different combinations I finally came up with this Growl style. I have to say that I would like to find a closer font to the one used in the new Xbox dashboard notifications, but I haven't found it yet. Also, I had added a white border around it because whenever the image is dark and your background is dark, it can be difficult to see. Also, I kept the image height and width proportional so it would not be stretched.

By the way if you know what font is used, please let me know. Also, feel free to send me any comments to improve it. I hope you like it!

Please download it here.



  1. The font in the original is Segoe, more than likely a new minor variant. I'd say it's closest to Segoe WP, which is included in MS Visual Studio 2010 for developing Windows Phone apps.
