I've been using Garland for a long time, but our staff complain that it's drab. Anyone have a suggestion for something brighter but also very clean (ie. good workflow, low rendering overhead)?

Personally I often like

Simple, clean theme, that is still pleasing to see. Has liquid width, so if you have a big screen you can make use of it for CiviCRM screens.

Not really maintained though.

I've always used Adminimal. I think it makes the Drupal backend as a whole much easier to use, and it's always worked well for me with the Civi backend too.

That's a good one. Any idea how to make adminimal's menu style override civi? – Cullen McGough Mar 28 at 17:52
@CullenMcGough Ah, nothing already-made that I know of, sorry. Though it might not be too hard to come up with custom CSS to override just Civi's menu to look similar to Adminimal's. – nikulis Mar 29 at 1:22
Just my opinion, YMMV, but I don't like this type of "modern" interface. I find them harder to read and navigate and to tell interactive widgets apart from purely visual elements. – DaveFF Mar 29 at 17:40

Bright and clean: I use Seven (ships with Drupal 7 Core - so well supported) as CiviCRM Administration theme - for nearly all of our projects. Easy to subtheme as well - making it a MySeven - if/when required.
