  • Posted to Where to buy a nice WordPress theme that is not bloated?, Jan 10, 2017

    StudioPress makes some pretty nice ones on their Genesis framework:

    Keep in mind, it is a framework, so it's going to be more bloated than themes that do not have as many dependencies or child / parent relationships. All in all, I like these a lot and have used them for years. Performance has come a long way and they have a lot of very nice features.

    Thanks for sharing! I think the "pen and paper" approach is grossly underutilized and underestimated. I've worked with a lot of designers that put all the emphasis on high-fidelity designing without clearly defining a path to take through lower-fidelity sketching and designing. Needless to say, it can easily end up getting pretty messy.

    There's nothing like creating a foundation for your product or design through some pencil, paper and elbow grease.

    Compressing those images could go a long way. Try saving for web in PS and then running them through something like ImageOptim ( - that might help out some of your speed issues.

    Great looking site, Emma. Nice work :)

    Has anyone successfully used this or a similar app to create animated previews / prototypes? I can see something like this being a little easier to use than After Effects for creating simple recordings.

    Looks to me like it's an assistant for git version control. I'm assuming you would use this if you wanted to take advantage of a version control system but are uncomfortable navigating the shell or running SSH commands to do it manually.

    Of course, you could always just use SourceTree or Tower for git.. super simple and you don't need to jump through the hoops of a 3rd party service.

    One thing to note: git does not always work well with design assets and resources (in my experience), so having an integration in Sketch may be the true value of a service like this. Just a thought.
