Can you post the presentation so I can get your "code fix". I wasn't quick enough to get it the day of your presentation.
Yes! I spent a bit of time visiting Utah with my family, so I've been delayed on posting the presentation here, but I'm going to post it today with some additional info as well!
Thanks so much for attending my presentation at InstructureCon! As promised, here are my slides, along with some additional information. You are more than welcome to use, change, adapt my code, but I cannot provide any guarantees on it, so please use it at your own risk.

What's Inside the Zip File:
CanvasGlobal.css: Add this line of code to your global css file for your Canvas instance
google-fonts.css: The css code for the Google Fonts we used in our themes (add new fonts here)
themes folder: The image files for all the themes (add, remove, or edit theme images here, note the naming convention)
themes.css: The css code for the theme ID styles (add, remove, or edit styles here)
NOTE: The code in these files has been written assuming that all the files will be placed together in the same directory on your web server as your global css file. If you locate them elsewhere, please adjust the included links accordingly.
What to Do with the Files in the Zip File: Add the code from CanvasGlobal.css to your global css file for Canvas, if you have one already, or use the file as your global css file, if you don't have one. Add the rest of the files to the https server where you host your global css file for your instance of Canvas.
