Hey everyone this is my first post here. I am new to web design and I was told rapidweaver is a pretty cool application to design websites in. I would greatly appreciate any input as far as what theme to start out with as well as what add-ons I should pick up to greatly improve my company's website. Here is what we have so far:

I am a big fan of this website and would like to incorporate a homepage similar to this:

http://www.crucial.com

Thanks so much!

    For the type of site you are building I would recommend the Ultimate line of themes from http://seydesign.com/

    Does this look like a good theme for me to start off with?

    I am also intrigued by this theme:

    http://ncdthemes.com/preview/rapidweaver/g_ometrix.php

    Would that work as a good starting point as well? I plan on purchasing one or the other today and getting the ball rolling on this project.

    Thanks!

    My suggestion is, read the features page for each theme carefully and give the demo sites a thorough examination. Depending on the theme, some features may not be easily changeable (i.e., many themes have limited options for positioning the navigation). But both are fine themes.

    I suspect given the navigation you're looking for, G ometrix will be a more flexible option for you and it will be easier to get close to the look of the site you linked with it. But I haven't used either them so that's based on my inspection of the features.
