The history of Xbox One controller customization service started in 2014 with the appearance of the first generation of Xbox 1 gaming pads. Back then, the controllers maintained the original layout of the Xbox 360 pad featuring several tweaks in the design. The shape of the product was rethought, the analog sticks, shoulder buttons and triggers were redesigned plus the new vibrating system inside the triggers allowed a better, more haptic response.
The aesthetics of the new version of Xbox One controller immediately created a demand for more customization options. That’s when the most modding companies on the market came out with a feature called Controller Creator. Hey, even Microsoft Corporation didn’t want to miss on the opportunity to get their share in the field and introduced their Xbox Design Lab two years later.
Controller Creator is a powerful online platform that allows building your controller from scratch using various colors, textures and other design elements.

Basically, you will act like a designer mixing and matching custom Xbox 1 pad components before you come up with your own unique color scheme. The process is very simple: you will start with a basic looking controller and go on by trying custom options for the body and all the main product parts such the directional pad, face buttons, analog sticks, side grip panels and a battery pack. The number of all possible combinations is enormous and gives a lot of room for the imagination to run wild.
