Highlands by Design

Tulip Time Theme

This theme was originally the new design for our Southern Highlands site, but then something happened! Yes, it seemed a site had just popped up that used a similar colour scheme, and tulips for their header image. That site has since disappeared (or at least we can’t find it), but rather than waste a template we did think looked kinda fun, we converted it to a WordPress theme. It was our introduction to creating WordPress themes, and it was kinda cool watching people turn the template into their own!

Silver Lexus Theme

Subtle and classy, just like the car! It might appear to be a little light, but we’ve always been a fan of subtle drop-shadows, and light grays. Picture yourself in a futuristic asylum for futuristic lunatics. That is the Silver Lexus Theme. We’ve also added a dash of orange, just to keep things sane.

Southern Highlands Theme

The Southern Highlands Theme came about as we were going back through our Tulip Time theme, and basically attempting to restructure the html so it wouldn’t do strange things when Internet Explorer’s browser window’s width was 500 or so pixels. We used bits of the Jello-piefecta 3 column fix, and took it from there. When we had finished, we figured we’d throw up some new images and call it a whole new theme! We couldn’t think of anything crazy to call it, so we just settled on the Southern Highlands theme.
