Worked with a designer friend of mine Devin (mydesignelement.com) to turn his flat into a WordPress theme for his client’s site that was usable, cross browser compliant, and search engine optimized. Built on the WordPress platform because it’s easily adaptable and simple to use.
Things I learned: It was interesting adapting the large branding image into the design. This was also the first real standalone theme I had done. I had used a WordPress theme on my own site (pre 2.0 variant) but it was basically a CSS file thrown onto a theme template. For this project I used a framework I had been building for my own site and adapted it slightly to the needs of the client.
