When it comes to Growl styles, my choice is one: Mono. Designed by Christopher Lobay, it's been my default style for the past year and couldn't be happier with it. For as much as a Growl style it's just a style after all, I highly rely on Growl notifications during my day, and Mono happens to be a minimal, elegant, unobtrusive, beautiful solution to display Growl notifications on screen.
Now Christopher is back with a new Growl style. Called "Eleven", it retains the minimalism and simplicity of Mono, it's inspired by OS X and it's got a subtle animation I can't just stop looking at. Maybe this is wrong, I don't need to look at a notification like this - but man this is some serious pixel lust. It has replaced Mono for now.
You can go download Eleven for free here. You've been warned, it'll look hot on your Mac.
