Pulling some stuff out of the stacks today. There are a few things I have created/produced during my Dark Time. Overall, Im in a better headspace now (with only a few low hanging clouds) and Im still dealing with the backlog of submissions, which are getting released as close to chronological order as possible.
This project wasnt just about designing (a template) for a website, it was about building it from the ground up. Client had some very specific needs for the payment process, including recurring subscriptions, collapsible checkout panes, and a way of issuing follow-up notifications and newsletters to current customers. For this reason, upgrade from Drupal 6 to 7 was avoided, finally choosing Ubercart as the best shopping cart candidate.
Even the original client's logo (before the project was abandoned) was pretty basic and simple. So, I didnt have much to go on for creating a theme, save for 3 basic colors for my palette. Using custom Drupal views, A to Z included a "Featured Products" display carousel. Sidebar headers used enhanced aesthetics, the rounded corners and shadow effects implemented with CSS3PIE for optimal Internet Explorer 8/9 compatibility.
This theme was developed of the Fusion Theme Framework
