"Joy is the feeling of grinning on the inside" - Dr. Melba Colgrove
Despite the hard work and long hours, I believe everyone in the team is enjoying the 6-in-6 Challenge. Joy brings us half way through the Challenge as our 3rd of 6 templates to be released in as many weeks. I still believe our designs are getting better and better.
If it was just one template a week that we were releasing, that would be quite an accomplishment, however, we have simultaneously been working on Wright v 2.0 which will bring many amazing and unique new features and functionality. Once Wright v 2.0 is released, these new updates to will be applied to all our templates built on Wright.
First, meet simpleTech, a new Joomla 2.5 Template by Joomlashack. simpleTech is a high tech-look Joomla Template built on the Wright Framework. It is as versatile a design as they come. It comes in six colors, light and dark themes, 12 versions, as well as elegant and contrasting call-to-action color combinations.
The 6-in-6 Challenge is something else altogether.
We need your help. Please vote at our Facebook Page which template you would like us to update to the Wright Framework and Joomla 2.5. You can pick from any Joomla 1.5 Template in our Profesional Templates page.
We're excited to welcome designer Paola Gomez to the Joomlashack family. Paola has over 10 years experience in graphic design including 5 working at the world-renowned and high-paced DDB ad agency. Although not 100% her design, Paola worked extensively on this template. It was a work in progress when she found it and she completed and polished into this elegant and minimalist business-themed template. The result, as you can agree, is awesome.
Meet Argos, our newest Joomla 1.7 Template. Argos is built using versatile and dynamic Wright Framework.
2 weeks ago we welecomed designer Paola Gomez to the Joomlashack family and today we are happy to present you with her latest masterpiece: Tailor. Tailor, our newest Joomla 1.7 Template is built using the nimble, versatile, and dynamic Wright Framework.
We at the Shack are excited about 2012 and to start off the year well we are releasing this pretty and NEW Free Joomla Template built on the Wright Framework.
During the first years of the Joomla! project, it used to be that you could not throw a stick in the Joomlaverse without hitting a Free Joomla Template. Today however, reliable Free Joomla Templates have become scarce and truly hard to find. Most Joomla Template stores either stopped making them, or they've hid them so deep inside their sites that you'll need Indiana Jones to help you find them. But not us...
This is where we would normally write how excited we are about Ilumina. We are, dont get me wrong. It is one awesome, all-purpose Joomla Template, built on the Wright Framework like all our latests, but you already know that. You also know that because its built with Wright, it will be upgraded to Joomla 2.5 with the flipping of a switch (though we'll still test it extensively).
So today, we've decided not to bore you with our typical Joomla Template launch copy (we'll bore you next time). Instead we thought we could do something fun. If you are interested, please read on...
Its becoming clear to us that we cannot leave well enough alone.
The JS Community Joomla Template has been a best seller. It's one of those timeless designs that's both an evergreen and a perenial. We werent satisfied with that and have just completed a ground up update to the Wright Framework which makes it lighter, more reliable, and more versatile. Wright also makes it quickly and easily updated to Joomla 2.5 or the newest version of Joomla with the flipping of a switch.
Don't worry, we did not mess the design, we just gave it a cool new logo and added a new demo to help you to see it's potential.
Calm, peaceful, elegant, Halcyon.
On more than one occasion I have heard people compare our web design industry with architecture.
It’s an easy comparison to make. Websites are a lot like custom designed buildings. The client, for a web site or a building, will approach a designer with a specific set of needs and objectives he or she needs to incorporate into the design. Both may have difficult problems that need to be addressed in an elegant, efficient, and flowing manner. Both need to editorialize and often fit less rather than more. The parallels between the two industries are many.
