Gravity RapidWeaver Theme Breaks with Traditional Template-based Design
July 22, 2011 in Web Design
[prMac.com] Raleigh, North Carolina - NimbleHost today is pleased to announce Gravity 1.0, their latest theme/template for RapidWeaver, the popular web site design application for Mac OS X. The Gravity RapidWeaver theme enables the experienced or beginning web designer to create unique and professional looking sites by breaking from the traditional and easily recognizable paradigm typical of template-based design.
The proliferation of modular web design applications like RapidWeaver have enabled users of all levels of training and experience to create excellent web sites. Web themes, also known as web templates, play a crucial role in these applications by providing a design framework in which users can add their own content. However, by their very nature, templates tend to follow certain design patterns resulting in many different sites sharing a similar look and feel. Gravity breaks from this traditional paradigm, offering a professional quality theme which allows users to create sites not typically possible with template-based design.
