Caravan News from Caravanwise

Site Design Details

The site is a bespoke minimalist design using a responsive CSS grid framework. The Skeleton CSS framework is a beautifully simple concept.

Initial inspiration came from Modern Clix the minimalist Word Press theme, created by Rodrigo Galindez, but I wanted something a bit more magazine in feel so I added a bit of red and then to make the main reader focus the RH content area I made the text in the LH column and footer grey. Hopefully I haven’t completely ruined the minimalist ideal with my pragmatic approach to the need for many links in the RH column and the use of red in the type.

The site is run using Textpattern the wonderful free CMS and blogging application. I need to do some teaks to try and get the site running a bit faster. The tag cloud is produced using Nathan Arthur’s tru_tags plugin. Textpattern tag cloud plugin

©2010 Caravanwise Limited Although inspired by Modern Clix the template design is completely different underneath and all rights to this design are reserved. If you would like to use it with Textpattern please write to me. I’ll probably be happy to let you have the thing FOC but you will have to make a bit more effort to install it than you would a released design. If I have time I may polish it a bit and release it to the Textpattern community.
