Being a good designer requires you to stay all day long on Dribbble or related inspiration sites, to steal design ideas from there.
The good coder downloads opensource stuff and copy/pastes code from there or from tutorials.

Thanks for giving away all the secretz! ;)

Because let’s face it, coding is way more difficult than designing.

Your not going to win many friends with that attitude. Please don’t be so naive.

Not an Envato item, but I used: http://finegoodsmarket.com/view/

Works a treat, and the extended licence isn’t expensive.

+1 to that goal of buying a new car! And man, you’re young! I already feel old out of a sudden

Ha! I keep telling him this. I have 11 years on him, yet his designs still kill mine :)

Thanks for the replies fellas.

Seems WP is the way to go… Feels strange being a Tumblr author, but hey!

Hey,

I am just wondering how you folks handle your Theme Forest customers signing up to your own private support forums?

I noticed a few saying sign up with a private key, but I am unsure how to get this data from Themeforest and using it as a required key for the sign up process.

Any advice would be appreciated. :)

I move from Textmate – Coda – Sublime Text 2. Period.
Sublime Text 2 rules – in my opinion of course;)

+1 for Sublime. Its a well versed editor, that is always updated, easy to customise, and works on both mac / win / linux.

I kinda feel like Coda 2 is a little late to the party. Most the features (Excluding air preview) are already available in most other editors.

Kinda odd to hear friends saying they were buying Coda 2, before even trying it.

Like the guys said above, a design can be sold as HTML and a WP theme. It’s called ‘Double Dipping’ and its encouraged: http://notes.envato.com/general/make-more-money-by-double-dippin/

Got Coffee!

Overall I really like it, and fingers crossed it will do well on TF. I know TF are starting to limit minimal / light designs, but I think this has enough character to get accepted.

A few gripes:

The buttons – Are we flat or 3D? :) Personally, I would prefer to see them flat and a different colour on hover.

The icons used on the ‘For both deskop and mobile’ – The grey is almost too faint, and creates a void.

The social icons in the footer, I would prefer to see in a 3×2 formation, the same height as the last tweet. Again, I presume you never know the tweet height, so maybe a pain to do :)

Apart from that, I really like it. Clean, light, but the highlight of blue just pulls it together…

Oh and a fixed header, have you been looking at my screen? :)
