Shell prompt setup

Look at this screenshot: and look at the blue Eterm in the center. Notice that under "two" theres a nice red graphics, and the whole prompt is really nicely configured. This "graphics" is the same as the one when you start BitchX in a console and you get the BitchX logo in the same "graphics". My question is how do people code/script this "graphics". And how would i make my own prompt like that?
Thanks in advance!
