This is my first IT technology theme demo. The colors are darker and subdued and I could lighten it up a bit, especially in the header slider but this is just a demo and so is showcasing the wrapper more than the contents. Also from a design perspective I would have fewer colors or process the images to black and white then tint them. Controlling color is important.
I looked at a site in Edmonton today. I notice they’re using a theme called Jupiter.
A potential client called me and was asking about my design services and how much it would cost to setup a WordPress website, find and install a theme suitable for a Tech IT company and then finally port all of their pages over to the new installation. My thoughts on that were why not see what I can do in 2 days @ 60/hr that works out to $960.00.
They don’t have much content so I can port that over quickly, then set it up and then get the taxonomy of categories and tags done. Then I’m sure I will have enough time to write a few good posts.
They had someone else on the side for writing posts. My idea is why not have both of us write a weekly post for a few weeks. A little posting competition. 😉 Good for everyone to get some competition going.
Those of you who know me personally understand that I love the Mountains. This mobile responsive theme from Automattic is a fantastic showcase for some of the great Mountains of the world.
Welcome to Pluto Cafe, choose an ice shelf have a seat and we will attempt to warm you with one of our signature Coffee’s. This is a Theme called Pique from Automatic and I’ve modified it slightly.
Scrawl – this is another theme from Automatic. I’ve made some changes. Blog posts usually display in a reverse chronological order, I’ve reversed that. The fly out menu has also been modified to show a jQuery collapsible menu. I selected the class from the original menu so it looks just like that one but is collapsible.
This is a minimalistic theme that has excellent typography. The theme is from Automatic and has an interesting menu system. Have a look and let me know how you find it.
