Wordpress Theming with Adobe

Tempted to purchase a Wordpress theme framework but worried that you’d be left with a plain looking result? Purchased a great, fully featured theme - but need to make the graphics more custom to your aesthetic? Let’s use Adobe tools to bend WP themes to our will!

Grace Solivan from bitofgrace.com will be overviewing her process of custom theming for Wordpress. Grace's clients keep her on her toes, needing consistent creative across the entire span of their marketing efforts in print and on the web. So, she has found a happy playground of Illustrator, Photoshop and Fireworks produces great, flexible results.

We’ll lightly theme a naked Wordpress template and dig in a bit to dressing widgets, headers, footers and borrowing the extra help of Adobe Typekit and Skyfonts ~ We’ll create lightweight, coordinated email header/footers and print high resolution postcards while keeping design efforts to a minimum.

And, as usual after the event, the group is invited to Tapas for drinks/food/conversation.

I hope to see you there.

    Finally found the Blog Content purchasing plugin I had chatted about at Hartford Adobe / Hartford Wordpress.

    Another good one, (though not a plugin)

    I've gotta say it's a whole lotta fun presenting to this group. Handful of new faces (to me at least) and as presenter it really makes me wish I could read minds. Bunch of you looked like you were experienced with a lot more than you'd let on ~ I'm sure I could learn a thing or two from you all! Thank you for being a great audience tonight! :)

    Wish I could attend, as it would be very informational, but have an existing Wednesday commitment. Thank you, and have a great time!
