I felt like making a theme that was a little less serious than others. Something just for the fun of it. I was thinking something just a little bit hipster without being hipster if that makes sense. There are so many WordPress themes aimed at a certain type of business but few with a certain type of person in mind. I figured I’d loosen up and enjoy myself, just for the hell of it. A bunch of coding hours later the fun was had and the theme was done. ‘Bearded Theme’ is now available on theme7.net
When I read an email asking me if I could create a logo featuring a Panda, I was stoked. Any excuse to sit around drawing pictures of cute pandas, also being a potter formerly, I felt I had something to offer experience wise. These guys are setting up a neat pottery decoration business where they set up parties so people can paint cool stuff on pots. It’s very popular globally but with nothing in Hong Kong as such, they have found a nice niche.

It’s really nice to get my new theme up on the WordPress gallery. It’s certainly not easy to get the code up to scratch with the very strict theme review. You really can’t have a dot out of place! It’s also a good learning exercise digging that deep into WordPress, each time I do something like this it teaches me lots of tricks (usually from troubleshooting problems with the theme).

Also, my premium version is up for sale, there are more options and slideshows. It’s more customisable from the theme options rather than needing to be a developer to add logos or change the images on the homepage and make them slide.
Some real website customisation done here. Many templates and workarounds were used to get this multiple slideshow, multisite WordPress job working as the client wanted. Always nice to get a finished product that you are proud of. The work was made easy by the nice folk at Permacrete.

What a great idea.
So many of us want to get those energy saving lights, we get to the supermarket or hadware store and chicken out. The choice between a thirty dollar bulb and a thirty cent one can be very tough. As the technology changes we are seeing more and more of these efficient products entering the market. That’s where light Savers comes in, they are all about getting these lights into your house, cheaper than you can go out and buy them yourslef. With a promise of paying for themselves in power savings in just two years and a life of thirty, it’s a no-brainer.
My Grandmother struggles to change lights and I can’t always be there when she needs them so I will be calling these guys in to change them for her.
It was my job to brand up their business, create a tri-fold, business cards and a website.
