One-on-One with Nick Roach of Elegant Themes + Poll Question

One of the largest sites offering WordPress themes is Elegant Themes. With nearly 100 themes created to date, Elegant Themes takes the approach that “less than more.” Rather than pack each WordPress theme with flashy graphics, superfluous features, and content on top of content, Elegant Themes keeps its designs clean and, well, “elegant.” The site sells to customers and developers using a yearly subscription model. GraphicDesign caught up with Elegant Themes founder and designer Nick Roach, who shared his... CONTINUE READING

Interview with DeeDee Gordon from Sterling Brands. Sneak Peek of the the-Collaboratory Re-Design!

Q: So DeeDee, you are renowned as a youth-culture expert and trend researcher. How and when did it all start? A: When I was younger I started consulting with a number of companies selling trends. I realized that these companies and brands didnʼt have a lot of accurate information about what was happening in youth culture. At the time, there was a huge need gap for information like this. Thatʼs how the light bulb initially went off for me.... CONTINUE READING
