Custom Joomla! Template Design & Development

It's fair to say that Joomla! boasts a pretty healthy selection of templates...thousands in fact. Some are great, some not so great. Many are free, some cost money, and some are regularly delivered via a club membership. So why then, would you ever need to look beyond this wealth of choice?

Thumbs Down

The Problem With Commercial Templates

There seems to be a growing trend amongst most template clubs to see who can bring out the most feature-laden template month-on-month.

The designs of some of the templates are incredible; lush effects, extravagant backdrops, multiple styles...the problem is, they are designed for the wider audience - members whose numbers run into tens of thousands - so you have to pack your monthly template with as much stuff as you can in order to tick at least some boxes in everybody's checklist.

This comes at a price though - huge Javascript libraries, custom plugins, transparent effects, 350 module positions: it's just too much for most people to be of any practical use.

Getting Unique

Most would agree that the visual element of web development is one of the key factors - that first impression to your customers.  Using off-the-shelf templates means you will always have to fit around it's limitations - perhaps your logo won't fit, or the colours don't match your branding.  Perhaps the whole thing just looks awkward.

We will take the time to understand how the website needs to work for you

Our custom-made template solutions are hand-built just for you and you alone. From initial design concept to working template, we will listen to your ideas, what you like, what you don't like. We will take the time to understand how the website needs to work for you - and build it with everything that's needed, and none of the fluff that's not.

We can even go the extra step with the power that Joomla! 1.5 gives us - with template overrides, we can give your template built-in SEO, or output the entire Joomla! core and modules without any tables whatsoever.  We can use module chrome to give custom module layouts that have limitless possibilities. It sounds cheesy, but almost anything is possible.
