Paul Weston April 24, 2012 at 9:33 am

Thought this was a great article and one that has some great themes in it. I like a lot of the themes you have put together but the ones that really stand out for me are the Cart Mania and Basico Themes. I love the clean look and feel of both designs and the use of colour with the Cart Mania having that hint of red that makes the theme stand out. With the Basico theme I like the apple feel it has but still comes across with its own look. Great article and I look forward to more articles like this from yourself.


infaweb April 22, 2012 at 4:27 pm

‘Basico’ the name says it all :) Yeah but I really like that simple clean cut style, its easy to navigate and not overwhelming. thanks!
