I ever saw some demo sites were using iphone, ipad images which are pretty sure not origin but from apple’s site. These images are beautiful and i’d like to use them too.
It seems no reason for Jobs being angry with seeing his product images are put everywhere but the question is, is it allowed for us? And i’d like to extend this discussion not only limited on images from apple, questions in the scope can be can we use images from Volvo for demonstration of car site template? can we use screenshots of other websites…, etc
I was thinking the same but I changed my mind. IF you have design skills, you definitly should learn how to code, it’s pretty easy and straight forward. Once you code 10-12 site, it’s always the same over and over again and in WP there’s a LOT of stuff you can reuse everytime ..
And you will learn that its REALLY hard to team up with someone that will make your ideas come true 100% the way you wantCan you show us some of your stuff?
High class developers in themeforest is very, very few, one reason is advanced and solid coding skill is not required for wp theme development, i saw many many wp themes don’t care about performance, security and request process at all, variables/actions/filters often claimed double even three times in one request, a same database query was made twice or more when there are widgets, one record one option no matter how many of them there are. But it’s fine, the only needs is working and they do.
another reason is most high class developers have their position in a big company, where they grew, working with other high quality people, research new technology. They are highly regarded and never affected by any economic depression. The only possibility such a person will go to freelance would be something changed HIS mind.
Do everything yourself is not bad when you have not such an awesome partner, but professional + professional is however the best solution, focus and saving time, as long as you can find one, good luck,
Well i can’t wait to tell you guys that i bought my real world counter strike game this morning, i accessed just now and found a stupid guy without keeping an eye to his left, i will definitely pull my trigger, should i, will i, can i?
Do you? There is no invites available for a new member unless you requested one.
I just finished, almost, the first theme of us, my partner and me. We share an account here, he delivers me the design files, i code and submit, split at 50%,
Would learn to mockup with fireworks to see if it will make design faster
I’m interested, this is my post http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/i-decided-to-accept-theme-coder-job/25775
I’m now in my first freelance job which will be completed in 1-2 weeks, if you are interested at me, contact me from my profile page,
Once you decide to “design” yourself, you will only get better and more confident. If the “design” part is the only thing coming in your way, you should not give up easily. I believe you are pretty good at coding and I like that.
May be you won’t like this, but I would like to say.. “You CAN design good! and you should try and hit some more designs before seeking/hiring other designers”. Wouldn’t it feel so good if you become a combo of design+dev. Designs doesn’t need to be so glossy, cheesy, 3d or with fantasy effects. You can study and look into “top yet simple designs” to know what makes them stand out. And believe me, once you get the rythm, you will go on
May be you will say you do not have so much time to learn and try/test things.. because finance pressure takes over time span.. and in that case you should definitely hire other designer. But once things are in control, start designing again.. All the best
Appreciated! But most i submitted designs are rejected, especially when you working hard on coding a design to template and it is later rejected cos design, it is really hurt because the time spent on coding is useless from the beginning and i did the same thing over and over again in a couple of months.
I really love design, but i have no enough money for continue now, i just can’t afford another reject
You seem to be very serious mate good luck – I’m forced to code my own themes because I need the money but If anytime I have to hire someone I’ll shot you a message Thanks and again good luck!
I’m trying to do my own design for a long time and no luck, although i enjoy design but maybe i have no talent on it, the worse is, i have to make some money for my living now.
I have no portfolio on code so far, so you will think it through before drop me some job. All i have is my career:
I start my career in Intel as a software developer, later a PO in Microsoft, i familier with php, wordpress coding, jquery, everything on theme development, and OO principles and major design patterns, well, this is not necessary. I can make custom slider, custom options, ajax feature and i already made some in my themes
I’m willing to offer a good price for my first job here, we can talk details in mails.
I will do PSD to WordPress or HTML to WordPress
