This site – wilwebs.com – runs on the Genesis Framework from StudioPress. As a StudioPress Pro Plus member, I have access to all Genesis child themes. That is all current and future child themes by StudioPress – 46 to date. Community themes and other third party child themes for the Genesis Framework are excluded from this arrangement.
Although StudioPress offers enough appealing themes, I wanted to create something unique and more personal. Fortunately the Genesis Framework makes this possible. Even more, StudioPress encourages customers and members to customize themes.
Even for a non-coder like me that is quite doable. The proof is this site. The design is based on StudioPress Streamline. The customized design has been created and executed by myself.
For the design of this website I wanted to stay away from the usual blue and red – two colors I turn to too often already. The colors I have been considering were green, orange and purple. Eventually, I decided to go for green. Now that the job is done, I am quite content with it.
When Brian Gardner, the founder of StudioPress, wrote me he found the design an “Outstanding job on the customization of Streamline!” I was really very pleased as you will understand. After this heads up, I decided to submit my customization to the StudioPress Showcase.
Guess what? My submission of the Streamline customization has been accepted and is now on display at the StudioPress Showcase. You can find on this page.
