Thesis Web Design Review
It didn’t really catch on, mostly due to bloated code output.Now, more than 10 years later, we STILL don’t have pure drag & drop WYSIWYG web design available! Two new features helps non-designers create web designs that sport good typography and harmonious color schemes.
Chris has even said the Typography Calculator in Thesis 2.1 is an improved version. Via a deceptively simple UI, it helps you create a beautiful color scheme for your website. Based on that, matching harmonious hue variations are automatically calculated.
Again, to me and fellow web designers, it’s logical.
But an average user has a lot of trouble making HTML and CSS work in tandem, to create their desired result. Well, first you gotta create the HTML and logic (PHP) part of the template.
But some users may want (and developers WILL need) more options to customize the appearance. A child theme will a set style, colors, graphics, etc.
Then, you’re able to customize it as you like, all without directly altering any files. For developers, this will save a lot of time because they will be able to develop a custom portfolio of themes, export them, and tweak them for each individual client.
