for Customizability

I've had this theme for years and have installed it onto several websites. I was impressed with the customization because I'm one of those people who can be a little high maintenance with appearance. Their customer support has always been incredible, but what blew me away is that there is a little installation wizard helping me with my most recent upload to a new website. This is yet another example of their ongoing upgrades--the theme just keeps getting better.

for Flexibility

8 years now and still going strong. Unlike several other themes on here that I've used where the theme and/or the developer just disappeared one day, causing major hassles. AndonDesign and uDesign are the real deal. What's not to love?

for Customer Support

Great template and customer support over few years, thanks

for Design Quality

Очень красивый и универсальный шаблон. Прямо влюбился в него. Сделал отличный сайт и даже не пришлось обращаться к службу поддержки, хотя я далеко не профессиональный программист.

for Customizability

Great and complete. Easy to customize and very speedy.

for Design Quality

I'm not here to knock this theme, I found it to be well designed and coded, looks very nice.

The issue I have is that what's under the hood is not what is purported in the themes sales copy. Specifically, the Udesign designs are not a code-free. The sales copy makes claims that no coding is required to customize the designs as you can simply use WPBakery, which implies the WPBakery was used to craft all the designs.

This is 100% false. In fact, the main theme design is hard coded in html/css, so in order to make even the most rudimentary of design changes you must at least understand the basics of html/css.

These designs are far from ready out of the box.

With that said, if you are an html/css expert then you will have no problems customizing the Udesign designs. You could also, theoretically, convert the html/css to WPBakery but again, that does require a solid understanding of html/css.

This theme is not for non-coders and the sales copy is very misleading on that front.

The html/css is however well coded.

Thanks for the feedback. I see you purchased the theme back in 2015 and you're just bringing this up, have you not used it all this time?

for Code Quality

I am only allowed to select one reason for rating in the drop list :/

I purchased this theme for my business website over a year ago and have been very pleased.

What is my take on his theme? - I give 5 stars to this theme and its theme developer Anton. Here is why:

I am a website developer and designer, it is my business, so to ensure I use quality products is paramount and I am truly care about quality.

Here at Envato, I found out the hard way that a lot of sales does not always mean it is a good theme or good theme support, so I had to find a way to vet themes before purchasing, because even here at Envato there are some really bad developers.

Anton succeeds to be one of the top theme developers here at Envato. His theme is solid design, top quality coding, and support is top notch. I can rely on Anton to ensure a support issue is resolved and I mean he really supports his work. (Sometimes I think he stays up 24/7 by his computer waiting for support requests, which the speed he replies with!)

Updates, Anton is on top of it. There are not many developers that keep their themes updated in a timely manner, Anton does.

Theme versatility? - Very much so, especially with the fact that Anton has made his theme compatible with Elementor and WPBakery (I prefer Elementor, it is far easier to use).

Is there a down-side? - Yes, that Anton only has 1 theme for sale :(

Kudos to Anton!

Thank you for your feedback! Appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with the theme. Happy to hear you love the theme and support I provide. It means a lot to me. I know sometimes people think my name is "Anton" but it's actually with a "d": "Andon" :) Close enough though ;)
