First of all I would to like congratulate to all Magento Team for this powerful ecommerce platform.

I am very much happy to hear from you guys and help me on how to create a simple Magento Themes or Templates from scratch.

Is there any tutorials that I can look on and also that would be easy for beginners to learn?

Hoping for some response.

In difference from any random CMS system, webshops in general and Magento in particular needs soo many components in the right place to work in the front-end.

I’d recommend to find an as minimalistic theme as possible (i believe there is one called “blank") and start experimenting with that. 

I started with Magento last summer and i did not found any great articles/tutorial/resources. I even read a book about theme designing, but all that stuff is very basic. It took me some months of daily work to feel confident of what i was doing. And that came from experimenting and googling particular issues as i stumbled upon them, since they are often covered in forum and blogposts somewhere.
