Theme Battle #2 – Bravissimo vs. Photabulous
After the success of our first theme battle, regular Theme Lab commentator and designer Keith decided to volunteer a couple great PSD designs to our next one. The two screenshots are below. Simply vote for the one you’d rather see coded into a fully functional WordPress theme.
Read on to vote. You’ll need to vote on the actual site, so leave your RSS readers for a second.
The poll is set to close next Monday at midnight, so be sure to get your vote in before then.
Bravissimo is designed to be a pretty normal blog theme, with space for breadcrumb navigation at the top. Except maybe the logo, it could be coded as an almost pure CSS theme, so editing things like colors would be very easy.
Photabulous, as the name would suggest, is supposed to be a photoblog theme, with room for a featured photo. I haven’t released any photo/gallery themes on Theme Lab before, so if it won, it would be the first of its kind here. The closest thing to a gallery theme here would probably be the MintSwirl theme.
You’ll notice the Photabulous screenshot has the title “PhotoPress” in it. Upon searching I found a number of other WordPress products also named PhotoPress, so I thought it would be best to change it to something else. Thanks to Ben Cook of WPblogger for suggesting the name to me on Twitter. I thought it was pretty catchy.
Thanks once again to Keith for the designs. I would like to get some different designers facing off against each other as well, so if you’re a designer, please make sure to check the theme battles page for more info on submitting your PSD designs to participate in a theme battle here.
