How Jbn1 started their custom wordpress themes journey
Here's a few words about our company.
Libris A/S is an entrepreneurial Danish Publishing firm with roots in media, IT and retail. We have a strong national presence, with more than 800 offline distribution partners and over 30 digital distribution partners. Rights to our titles are sold to more than 14 countries. Founded in 1994, we have sold more than 9 million books in our home market.
But what we have done so far does not reflect what we will do in the future.
This site is the first site of many, where we publish the contents in a non-linear fashion (books are normally read in a linear fashion). Here we will publish all relevant information about specific topics. Often tech related.
We are a small dedicated team of people who love to make knowledge available for all.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The audience for this site, will be people who love Macs, iPads, iPhones, iPods etc. People who appreciate design. People who appreciate delicate fonts. People who likes things that are done very well. Things that is thought through.
We are inspired by some cool sites. Especially http://www.coolhunting.com
If I had found a theme that cloned coolhunting, we might just have used that.
Have that in mind when you see the attached wireframe model. (frontpage only)
If the design ends up looking a lot like that, we wouldnt mind. But of course we would want our our identity.
And we dont mind you being really creative and getting back to us with something really different. Even something that is not quite like the wireframe.
The brand manual (beta) is in danish, but with very few words. Its quite visual so you should be able to get some clues.
The stripes in our brand manual page one - would be something you could toy with in different ways.
At our website http://www.libris.dk you can see our publications and the visual style. Honestly, our site could be better designed. But that will be a completely different task.
