When we set out to build our next WordPress theme we asked the question “What are the most important elements you look for in a theme?” Here’s what we found out:
- Professionally designed
- Modern look and feel
- Fully responsive
- Easy to setup and customize
- Unlimited page layouts
- Flexible enough to fit any industry
After we had that list, we started building.
Design is Crucial
Web design is what we do and what we’ve been doing for many years now, but we wanted to take this design to the next level. We understand the importance of quality design so we knew we needed to create a modern, yet simple design anyone could use as their website. Here’s a quick peek at a section of the home page.
Enhanced WordPress Framework
Next, we knew that we needed to build options into our WordPress framework that people actually needed. There are literally dozens of new WordPress themes released across the web every week that are so feature rich that they become confusing to use. This is not what we wanted.
After determining what were crucial elements that had to be included, we built an admin panel that includes all the necessary settings you need to quickly and easily adjust your site to fit your needs.
On Page Layout Builder
More and more WordPress themes are including a Page Builder or Template Builder function with them. These tools are great to easily customize a page layout to fit your needs. We spent hours using and assessing many of these including the one on the Good Space theme by Good Layers and stmcan’s RT-17. There are pros and cons to each, but we took the best features of both, added in some new features to enhance its functionality and the result is hands down the best on page layout builder you will find.
Getting Excited Yet?
We are carefully testing and tweaking the final elements of this theme to ensure it works flawlessly upon release. The finish line is in site and the launch of this WordPress theme is happening soon. Make sure if you’re not already on our email list, sign up in the side bar now to make certain you’re notified when this theme arrives. You won’t want to miss out.
While you’re waiting, be sure to check out our previously released WordPress theme Creativio. It’s not too shabby either.
