Our company’s designer just quit, and was working on a website design that we desperately need. We’re confident this is a slightly altered WordPress theme that can be found on Themeforest, but are unsure which it is.

Can anyone identify this theme? Please keep in mind that the images and colors have been altered from the stock theme.

Look in the style.css file of the theme unless the designer changed it, the theme name should be listed there.

That would be too easy :] It’s just a flat. He deleted the installation from whichever server he was using and we no longer have access to the WordPress files. We need to build it out from scratch and would like the template rather than spending $30,000 on a custom design.

Well Im not sure which exact template he used, but you can duplicate that design fairly easy with a handful of templates. It really depends on much he modified it.

Thats not that unheard of, especially working with larger agencies. (Multiple “teams” + meetings add up ). Most the time you’re paying for a lot more than just a “theme” though.

30k is definitely achievable for a major agency in London. I’d take Tom’s offer! It reminds me of a theme called “branded” (with some customisation to the header and footer) that was by iKreativ (now Lovethemes) but the theme has been removed since. Either way it would not be hard to custom for well under 30k.

Are we talking about the uber cool trendy hipster agencies with dozens of so called creatives who are playing pool all day and sit with their notebook outside with fellow employees doing nothing but laughing and talking about the weekends?

That’s at least what I notice when I look at their ‘About us’ pages.

Then my advice would be: Look for a small agency or a one man show like tommusrhodus and save yourself a couple of thousands.

@supersimple that is a brilliant description! :-)

To play advocate I work with a big creative agency in central London – yes we have pool tables amongst several other cool office features BUT I promise we do not get to sit about chatting all day.

I know several agencies who dont touch apps/sites under 25-30k minimum but it is all relative. We have to pay london office rent, salaries and have several demanding global brands who do not accept ‘bugs’ etc.

At the end of the day you are right though – agency side has it’s advantages and in some cases is the right option (for example in a corporate environment I doubt many procurement managers would be too happy parting with sizeable budgets to a bedroom developer no matter how talented) BUT without a doubt individuals and several of the authors on here are unquestionably on a par if not better (Tom as an example) than many agency developers and will produce first class work cheaper.
