Introducing Harbour: A Premium Theme for WordPress

This entry was published on April 28, 2009 and may be out of date.

Harbour is my first submission to Envato’s theme marketplace, ThemeForest. It is a WordPress theme designed for personal and business blogs.

Harbour is the product of a month of sleepless nights and endless hours of work. I am very happy with the result and I was very excited when it was approved for sale.

The Idea

Inspired by a postcard sent by a friend from Australia. I loved the colours so much that I thought it would make a great website template. I started playing with Photoshop and came up with a neat and clean design in a few hours.

Desire for passive income

One of the main driving forces behind all the hours I put in was the desire to make some passive income. A few sales at ThemeForest could generate a steady stream of income.

I have been following a few popular designers at the Envato marketplaces and have seen them make quite a significant income. I thought I would use my spare time to make something to make a bit of money in these tough economic times.

Something to show for myself

Every designer wants to entend their portfolio and add as much quality work as possible. A premium theme in an Envato Marketplace is a good addition to the portfolio.

Also, it provides quite a bit of exposure in the design community, which has been one another driving force behind this theme.

Features

Harbour is a very smart theme. It takes 2 minutes to install and customise the theme to fit your needs, whatever it may be.

  • It uses Cufon for text-replacement so the your brand-name and the tagline are automatically generated. There is no need to edit and slice the PSD to change logo and tagline!
  • The CSS is incredibly modular and makes modifications very simple.
  • The PSD files are layered and grouped. It also contains guides and slices for your convenience!
  • The Theme Options let you customize your theme to your needs.
  • You can design your own theme based on Harbour in a few minutes. Just follow a few simple steps as shown in the Documentation.
  • Clickable, interactive Widget-ready sidebar.
  • AJAX Live Search for ease of use.

There is a working live demo if you want to look in depth.

The cause

The money from the sales will go to my University fund. Please help me get a qualification whilst making your weblog look and feel new.

It is reasonably priced at 25USD. If you are feeling like your blog needs a refresh, please consider purchasing the theme. Thank you.
