Over the past week or so, I’ve become quite familiar with the Magento template structure. This is only partly useful, because I’m not too good at graphic design at all. I know there’s got to be some graphic designers out there who’d love to work on templates, but don’t have the coding skills. Essentially, I’m looking for someone to work with in creating a template or two (to be released to the community) for Magento. Send a PM my way if you’re interested.

Thanks Roy,

Magento looks like an awesome piece of kit and a nice skin design to start with I am no stranger to designing tableless xhtml /css templates for other apps, hope its not too long before I can grasp the Magento system.

Still not managed to install it though, but have a free demo running care of Simplehelix.com (btw thanks to Simplehelix).

Dave, you can also try my theme (links in the signature). My first experience theming M was quite involved. Sometimes you’d move something and it’d disappear, sometimes it would appear funky because of some undesired css still applied. It’s was quite a swim to go through all the css and templates, and it’s still far from complete, but it was certainly a learning experience.

Tyler, if you are still interested in a designer, feel free to PM me and we can discuss things further. cool smile
