I modified Microsoft’s Verdant Theme (the lime green one) for my company’s branding purposes. The lime green was the easiest to work with for my purposes. Someone else did the Photoshop mockups of three acceptable theme color combinations for me to implement. No changes were made to the master pages, so I only needed to change image files and css files to make my new themes.
