What you can expect from the new Themezilla blog
We’re constantly on the lookout for tools and resources that help us work better. A lot of the things we try don’t stick, but every so often we come across a real gem that helps us design, develop, or just think smarter.
Previous to now, Themezilla’s blog has mostly been about our themes, but there’s a lot more we could be giving back to the community. So, we’re relaunching our blog with a focus that goes beyond just us: tips, tricks, tools, and maybe a little fluff. Now there’s no excuse for us not to share the good stuff.
We make WordPress themes for a living, so a lot of the blog’s focus is going to be on what WordPress is really capable of. But we’ll go beyond that, too. If you’re creative, work with clients, run a small business, or all of the above, you’ll find something worth reading.
Here’s a little taste of what you can expect over the coming months…
The best web design
WordPress or not, we love seeing web design that pushes the limits of what we think websites are supposed to look and feel like—sites like Christian Blüemelhuber’s or PowaBand. We want to make sure great work gets the appreciation it deserves.
We wouldn’t be creating themes the way we do without all of the icon sets, Chrome extensions, Sketch plugins, and Photoshop templates we use every day. Not to mention the powerful articles about design that change the way we think. We owe so much credit to other creators, and we hope to share the wealth by creating some useful stuff ourselves.
Business 101 for designers
We’ve made more than a few mistakes over the years, many of them simple business or process problems that could have been avoided if we’d just known what to look out for. Whether you’re a freelance designer, the head of an agency, or a player on a large team, chances are you’re up against many of the same challenges. We’ll be sharing some of our experiences so that you can avoid the same pitfalls.
A better WordPress for designers, developers, and everyone
There are a lot of WordPress resources out there, but not all of them are easy to find, up-to-date, or well documented. We want to help you perfect your workflow by pointing you towards the best WordPress plugins (and our plugins), tools, tricks, and design assets. It’s only right.
That’s the start. Like any good blog, things will probably evolve over time—we’ll see where it goes. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions or feedback, drop us an email at email@example.com.
