The Idea behind WebKeyDesign:

The problem with life is that you get bored. Most webdesigners learn this very quickly, because although it is interesting to produce a neat site, you soon get tired of it and want to redo it as something else. Seeing how I wanted to both learn more about web design and not change my site every week, I decided to just do other people’s web sites. But most of my clients were new to the process of creating a new site, so I ended up having to do more than just design a site.

WebKeyDesign is a place for both my clients and people who like to blog and customize their html. If you need a simple site or perhaps are just looking for web hosting then perhaps you would be interested in becoming one of our clients. But if you just want a place to talk and learn more about html, css, blogging, or hosting, well that is okay with us too.

WebKeyDesign WordPress Theme

Where did the themes for WebKeyDesign come from?

The original theme was actually a modified version of John Wrana’s WordPress Relaxation theme. I really liked John’s color design, but I found the font too large for the individual postings, so I reverted to the original default css from WordPress for this. Some of the static pages are actually not powered through WordPress. There are of course some unique exceptions of course. One of the big changes to the theme that I did make besides the fonts, was the horizontal space. I made the theme wider in general to make room for more content.

Another theme, which I refer to as WebKeyDesign 4, is a modified version of Nest Theme by YChong. This is a much lighter and modern based theme. It also renders adequately for me on mobile Safari.

For a time I utilized Beans as a framework and built a theme around it. This is an interesting framework if you want to utilize parent themes within WordPress.

Currently I am experimenting with another framework and the current theme is a work in progress. It looks similar in color and layout to the Beans theme I created.
