When you knock on our door and ask, 'Trick or Treat?' there can obviously be no trick... only treats!
For the next three days we will be running an incredible 3-for-1 theme special at Obox Design!Continue Reading
In a nutshell: You are going to have to wait till the 2nd of November.
What I can tell you is that it started with our own CMS called OCMX Live (which we have successfully ported to Wordpress) and culminated in our Wordpress theme company.
We never like standing still for too long at Obox and we love to set challenges and deadlines which are hard to achieve.
Since launching Through the Lens we have decided to start updating all our themes to have a full width page templates. I am not sure how we let this slip under the radar previously but we have now corrected the issue.Continue Reading
It's finally time to expose you to Through the Lens, and I promise you it has been well worth the wait. Personally I wish we could have launched it the day I designed it but Rome wasn't built in a day...Continue Reading
This question has been in my head for quite a while now.
At about this time last year I wanted to be as good as anyone with as many styles as possible. It started with creating some dynamic layouts and then skinning them with different themes, grunge, hand drawn, minimalist and so on.
The intention at the time was just to get a taste of each so that when the time came that someone wanted that style, I could produce it.
It was my belief that you had to be good at any design style to be considered a good web designer. I used to think it was a bad thing if my portfolio had a ‘samey' feel to it.Continue Reading
You may have noticed that every Friday for the past 3 or 4 weeks we ran a special called 'OBOXFRIDAY'. What we were doing was testing what gave us the best return in terms of sales and of course, marketing.
The results were plain to see and so we have decided to create a permanent special that I am sure many of you will appreciate.
The next Two weeks are going to be huge at Obox Design and the people who will benefit are most definitely going to be you and you and you ;)
So I thought I would whet the appetitie a bit and just give you a slight idea of what to expect.Continue Reading
We've been wanting to create a business styled theme since we redesigned our home page.
What I have done is taken elements from our current home page layout and applied it to ‘Briefcase', our first business theme to come out of Obox. The research was done long ago, so it was just a matter of applying it to a cool style.
Problem with that is, lately I have been obsessed with minimalist design (Press, Platform, Through the Lens). So I have decided that Briefcase will have a minimalist style as well as the more conventional colorful and detailed design.
Here are two sneak-peak screenshots of a theme which we are confident will help your conversion.
It's a beautiful day in Cape Town today, so we are feeling rather kind.
If you are a developer and have been dying to get one of our themes we are offering you a 50% discount on any Developer package that you purchase from Obox.
Simply type in the coupon code "oboxfriday" when making your purchase and all the developer packages that you selected will be discounted by 50%.
That means you can get 4 of our dev themes for only $200, or maybe 1 for $50 or 2 for $100. Or, if you really like what you see, the entire set for only $300. It's crazy value. Crazy.
Remeber, all our themes come with full support and the OCMX Live add on.
The choice is yours! Happy Friday ;)
