Primary Audience: Designer | Level: Basic/Intermediate | About Kevin»

Most web designers start out with a blank Photoshop canvas and go from there, but designing a WordPress theme requires intimate knowledge of how WordPress sites are built. This course aims to change the way you think about designing for WordPress and what to keep in mind when doing so. We’ll begin by ditching the Photoshop blank canvas state-of-mind and looking instead at how to create a cohesive design system that is as flexible and extensible for your users as they’ve come to expect from a WordPress-powered site.
