Awesome designs — how do you build sites like this? – SitePoint

hi,

I’ve been a front-end developer for a long time.. I always thought I could do anything..:wink:
but this new look-and-feel, this new approach to web design, for example…
http://ridetheandes.cl/
http://www.kotaixbikepark.cl/
www.charitymiles.org

is not something I have ever built (I’ve been retired now for a few years.. I never saw this kind of design while I was still working.. I think they’re fairly new…) I have several comments and questions:

1) I really like this look-and-feel… I’ve never liked sites that are a narrow design taking up a narrow strip of the viewport (whether it’s in the middle or to the left..) I like this kind of expanded design very much.. it makes so much better use of the available space on the viewport..
2) they do seem to work in responsive…

questions: how do you build these sites.. my first instinct would be to just “figure it out” — do it on my own from scratch with jQuery or whatever.. but since I have seen this new look-and-feel so much lately I’m wondering if there’s a “standard” tool for creating these kinds of designs? a jQuery plugin (just to name something that I’m thinking of off-hand, since I use jQuery so much), or something of that sort… I looked at the src code, there seems to be no WordPress involved, on any of the three sites I mention…

which brings me to my next question.. are there any WordPress themes specifically created to do this sort of design?

which brings me to my next question (which I’ve had ever since I started learning WP a few months ago, & why I’m posting this here): do WP themes determine only the look-and-feel of a site or functionality also? i.e., if I build a site with WP, and want to change themes in mid-stream, will it change the functionality I have available — or just the design?

I’m learning WP now and it would be awesome if there were themes (free ones at that….;~) with which you can achieve this kind of design, which I like very much…

would appreciate comments/suggestions…

thank you very much…

PS: if you have examples of sites built with this same kind of design please post….:slight_smile:

thank you……
