How to Create a Blog Theme from Scratch

Posted By Darren Rowse 27th of March 2006 Blog Design 2’s blog designer Rachel Cunliffe has started a series of posts that I’m sure many of you who love to play around with your blog’s templates will enjoy. In her post Creating a blog theme from scratch she outlines where she’d headed with it. Her 7 steps are:

  1. Consulting with the client
  2. Constructing a wire frame
  3. Constructing an initial design idea in Fireworks.
  4. Converting the design into the (WordPress/MovableType) template files
  5. Tweaking the design to suit
  6. Re-addressing the blog’s design after it’s been used for a month or two
  7. Blog maintenance

While I’m no designer (and suspect I never will be) I’m looking forward to reading more on how a pro blog designer does it.

  1. I just got an entry out about the basics and I tried to keep it as short as I could.
