We recommend building from a theme that offers response or responsive design; flexible web design whose layout modifies for each platform that a website is viewed on be it a desktop, laptop, tablet or cell phone. Responsive design enables your site to be mobile compliant.
When selecting a theme for a website, focus on site structure. How are the home page and the frame of the site built? Content can change, colors can change, functionality may be added but you should be happy with the structure of a web theme at the outset of a project. Think of it as the foundation of your home. You can paint the walls, decorate the interior, alternate the furniture but you should really like the foundation of your home prior to move-in.
Theme Selection Process:
As part of the new website development process we will help you get started by selecting a set of themes that we think may be a good fit for you based upon your design preference as discussed in our initial consolation session. Hints are always helpful. If you see a website or elements from a series of websites that you would like to incorporate into your own web development project, please provide us sample URLS and we will attempt to select themes and plugins that includes these options and features. We encourage you to look at theme demos independently, viewing multiple pages within any given demo that meets to your liking. In doing so you may find additional functionality that you might find to be a good fit for your site within the pages of a particular demo.
