Any wildly creative themes? Like Flash!


(Andy Pink) #1

I find RW themes generally a little conservative and often corporate. Are there any truly out-there themes for RW? I mean like the good old bad old days of Flash sites!

Not really! The closest I can think of is something like this.

I agree that most themes are rather corporate looking and rather homogeneous.

I use Dromeas in my website, one of the first Stacks-based themes:

Lucas…exactly! …I’m going to investigate. BTW we do the same/similar thing: http://www.andypink.co.uk (see what I mean about corporate?)

I think the Splash theme might allow craziness…difficult to tell without more info though.

I’d like a landing page of just floating sounds that you can click on…no header or any of that traditional lay out :slight_smile:

Any others?

Why not use Foundation or Foundry or one of the other ‘freeform’ themes and build what you like with stacks?


(Andy Pink) #6

OK I’ll look into that…I’m no expert but happy to go for it. Thanks.

And take a look at Sections Pro and Sections Box from Big White Duck. People have done all sorts of crazy good stuff with BWD’s stacks.

I’m just working on my own website here: https://www.stormdesignprint.com/design/

I’ve used Foundation and a selection of stacks to bring a little animation in just to liven things up. Hope that’s helpful.

Hi Gabrielle
Thanks…but actually that’s exactly where I don’t want to go. Sorry, no offence, but that is very corporate.
Of course it is serving the correct purpose so I understand that design is correct.

I’m really looking for _radical art_design. Totally out there …a bit like Lucas’ site quoted above is. That’s not my cup of tea but it is out there nonetheless!

Andy
