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.

This week, we're proud to announce our latest template, JS Enterprise: A Joomla 1.5/1.6 template built for business
These days, your online 'brand' is everything--whether that brand is you, your blog or your business. First impressions last, and so you only have a few seconds to win over a new visitor that comes to your site.
Now, a great-looking website is just one part of brand-building (history, good deeds, great products, awesome customer service,distinctive colors, cool logo/typography, etc also play a part in brand-building), but if your website is cluttered and unprofessional, your company's good reputation, engaging content, and awesome products won't matter much to new visitors as they'll never stick around long enough to learn more about you and your brand.
Our JS Enterprise Joomla template will help you build your online brand and give your site a clean, corporate & professional look that will make your customers feel good about visiting (and buying from) your site over and over again.

We're thrilled to have been selected as one of the "15 Market Leaders of Premium WordPress, Joomla and Drupal Themes" by Speckyboy Design Magazine this week. There are dozens and dozens of template & theme providers out there for Wordpress, Drupal & Joomla, so to be singled out as one of the leaders in this space by an influential design mag/blog such as Speckyboy, is a great honor.
Here's what they said:
"Below is a list of 15 players in the theming industry that I personally can vouch for as they offer unique products and services. Basically there are three types of businesses that offer ready made CMS themes. Either you buy single themes on markets or from shops, or you can join a theme club and get full access to all designs on offer. Then if you need some grade of customization you will contact a web studio or a freelance developer to get your design tailored to your needs...."
