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.
