    Hi Nick, I really love having the custom backgrounds too, it would be great to see more options. We'll make sure to pass this feedback along to our Product Managers. 

    P.S. You're right, 2012 is ready to have it's 5-year reunion.

    I agree...Plain or a purple leopard are the only options. Would be cool to allow any image as well as ability to insert hex codes for custom color options

    Agreed, the leopard print shouldn't be the only custom option. I had a very emotionally scaring experience once with a leopard and am reminded of it every time I see that pattern. 

    It was 1994, and I was assaulted by a crazed, wild, sunglass wearing.. no i'm thinking of a cheetah. It was chester the cheeto cheeta. 

    nvm.

    @Gavin, thank you for weighing in on this! I also wanted to point everyone to another post you could be interested in voting for: New Wrike Party Themes.

    @Richard, oh no! Thank you for sharing that experience. I can only imagine how overwhelming it must be to be reminded of snacks every time you open the Workspace. Not something to be taken lightly, and a point we should definitely consider. Happy to discuss this further if it helps!

    @anastasia I appreciate it, but the party themes is exactly what I was referencing. There are two. and zebra or cheetah print are not my jam lol ...having custom functionality would be much better

    @Nick, to vote, click on the "+" near the counter under the post:

    @Gavin, the general discussion there is around customization, namely having non-animal print options :) "More subtle options" is definitely something I remember from there, so it would be great to hear your input there too!

    Yeah.. only one theme is just not enough for such an expensive service. I want to choose from at least 10 different themes. --The white is really terrible. Hurts my eyes!

    this is a step in the right direction for sure... but I want to use MY OWN ART.  like myspace back in the day. I am a fan of fried shrimp.. so what if I take a sweet pic of my breakfast and I want to use it as a background that day to show my love of fried shrimp with a little lemon juice on them.  what do you have against that? you don't like fried shrimp?

    This might be my new favorite comment ๐Ÿ˜‚

    It's less about the (tasty) shrimp and more about the implementation of such functionality and it's possible effects on other functions in Wrike. You're right, this is a step in the right direction and our team is keeping a close watch on the Community for feedback just like this, so thank you!

    Ps. I think it's paramount that I make it clear we have nothing against shrimp, fried or otherwise ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It's a great start, Stephen, but most of the working area of the desktop app is still in bright white ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ”ฅ. If the Midnight theme also gave the two working panes, for example, a dark gray background color, that would complete the experience. We're at least progressing in the right direction! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

    please please please add darker colours also in the working panes, large monitors are glaringly white and very hard to work on

    It would be great to be able to customise the themes - add larger logo spaces, and set the workspace to suit your organisations' brand.
