I noticed most of the templates offered on Magento Connect have minor customizations and are based off of the Modern theme (some are very obvious), In an effort to provide quality themes, I decided to try something different. This is a theme built from the blank “designer’s” theme offered by Magento.

Demo: http://www.ivutha.com/urban

Let me know what you guys think.

Hi Vutha, though not my cup of tea but I think the design is very nice.  I also like the concept of left/right menu, very creative, however I don’t think it’s very practical though - I think you need to find a way to let it stay with mouse out and when an item is added/viewed/compared.

You sure work hard and work fast.

Hi chinesedream, thanks for the suggestion. I’m working on the mouse out function as we speak, it will result in using Javascript (currently using plain css).

Vutha, Don’t Be a Copycat. Copying someone else’s work is wrong, and illegal. I believe None of these images http://bigcartel.com/ are permitted for point of sale.

bigcartel, let me clarify that I am not defending Vutha.

Comparing your site and his urban theme, I can see similarity, however, whether it’s copycat or ‘inspiration’ by your design, is arguable within copyrights definition in my humble opinion. We can’t copyright colors, layout of columns can we?

The similarity I see is the header section and the background colors - I think I will be a more careful, better, cunning copycatter if I were to get ‘inspiration’ by your site:) but this is beyond my point writing this message.

The rest to me are still very Magento Default Theme. You mentioned about images, what images are you referring to?

Hello all. I’m the owner of Indie Labs, creators of Big Cartel, and I’d like to clarify that the above post was not made by us.

I just happened to stumble upon this post in our stats today, and while we do take the copyrights of our designs very seriously, we’re not too concerned with this level of “inspiration”.

Thanks.

I am very confused, if your not the owner why did you threaten to take legal action? I couldn’t have said it better than chinesedream, however although it looked like I copied the site or used it as “inspiration”, I did not do so nor did I even know of bigcartel’s existence. With that said, after visiting the site I can be the first to admit that there are similarities, but I can say with 100% confidence that this was coincidence, even my other theme’s are using the same colors (Moderate theme). I think creating an account pretending to be “bigcartel” and speaking on their behalf is wrong on so many levels…

You’ve got to be kidding! I don’t like copycat and I certain do not like people making accusation of others stealing someone else works without knowing what he/she is talking - do you know in some countries, stealing can make you lose your finger and making accusation of other stealing is a sin?

So you are not the owner of the bigcartel, then who are you? Are you the designer of the bigcartel trying to help out your client when he already made it clear he isn’t worry about ‘this level of inspiration’, or are you just a nosy person like me but the opposite of my nosiness, that I voice my voice when I see people making faulty accusation of others but your nosiness is making faulty accusation.

ouch! that hurts! your nosiness exceeds mine - so articulate and calculatingly documenting every step.  Now, I think I owe you an apologize. Sorry, bigcartel, I was wrong about you.

Now Vutha has to defend himself I guess.  I don’t know why he changed the button.I am curious though, I see no two cart buttons in bigcartel site you posted.

And honestly, I wouldn’t make a fuss if somebody use my background image.

That’s ok chinesedream…
Here’s link http://bigcartel.com/signup “ sign up “ button same color,round corner.. i didn’t say Vutha copy that button just too much similarity..  I’m glad Vutha changed them. ( I will be more careful if I were to get ‘inspiration’ by any site… I will use rectangle button or add something to it {dots, lines, stars. colors, etc....to make it different} if they use rounded rectangle button...i won’t make it too similar) He did right now using his own works.  This’s call “inspiration"…

To be honest I don’t think I have to defend myself, give me 5 minutes with any site and I can do the same using Firebug, a Screenshot tool and Photoshop. So before you try to expose me of my alleged copyright, why don’t you tell us who you are? Are you someone who’s also selling themes on Magento Connect and with no business ethics is trying to bring down a competitor? Although I applaud your commitment to prove your point, why don’t you expose yourself before you try exposing someone else, maybe you’ll be more credible. I don’t know why I’m wasting my time.
