Yeah.. we only sell themes to trick you into thinking they actually work. But they don’t. It’s all a nifty little scam. Hah!

Writing a working theme is easy, making a theme SEEMINGLY working is an art! )

I’ve received a client letter:
Hi Anthony, I have to tell you I’m loving your Agency theme! It’s very similar to aphotofolo’s websites, which cost $1,000.
I checked those sites, and they indeed cost $1000, work much the same as Agency and based on Flash of all the technologies. Why are we selling this for $35, again?

CS5 splashes were much better. Why did they change screens and icons anyway? Nothing better to spend money on? Also, new layer stack is horrible and has issues with thumbnails for shape objects (barely can see color due to that new icon in the corner).

3. PAGE TEMPLATE BUILDER Actually I have mixed feelings about this. Wouldn’t a number of preset template pages with shortcodes be a more convenient and fast way for a developer to make page layouts, without wasting time on dragging boxes and setting parameters in “visual” back-end editor (which inserts same shortcodes anyway). And as for client – most clients I’ve seen want nothing to do with any CMS anyway and just ask developers to make changes for them) Hey, they are busy running their business, why would they want to learn WP admin skills? That said, is bundled number of pre-set pages (like on Karma theme, for instance) a good solution for a theme or visual editor is a must nowadays?

Judging by our experience, making theme actually responsive (as in : adapt well to mobile and tablet platforms) takes about 4-5 times more work than making a desktop-only theme. Testing and debugging is a lot of work and we have to deal with all sorts of limitations and platform bugs. Actually I don’t think Skeleton-derived themes and such can be considered truly responsive, as they just shuffle blocks around and disregard all platform specifics (ppi difference, limitations of mobile environment). Responsive projects should certainly be priced accordingly. And making non-responsive design in today’s world is probably not a good decision anyway.
