I’ve done a lot of WordPress Content Managment System Installations for clients recently and while its absolutely fantastic it does have one drawback for a web designer (which I used to be!).
When you exclusively use wordpress to power clients sites you find your creative talents suffer a bit. You become a web site installer rather than designer and the only bit of creativity you get to engage in is logo or banner design or design tweaking so it can get a bit boring.
So I done a bit of research and eventually figured out how to design my own wordpress theme or template, borrowing the main wordpress framework and adapting elements of other themes so its a bit of a mashup. Its imaginatively entitled “Reverb” theme!!
If anyone wants to try it out and tell me how many flaws it has, heres a screenshot/download link!!:
