What it’s like designing WordPress themes at Copyblogger

I enjoyed learning how some of my favorite WordPress themes are being designed over at StudioPress.

Brain Gardner refers to Rafal as his diamond in the rough and I don’t disagree. This opportunity at learning the process, thoughts, tools, time and fun they have putting into building themes is just great.

Aside from working at Copyblogger, we talk about supporting customers, looking for inspiration and some of his future plans — including a book!

I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did. If you have questions, post below!

  1. Good stuff… I watched the entire interview. I’ve loosely followed Rafal’s blog for a good minute now. I didn’t know about Typespiration, though. Nice site. My interest in Rafal was sparked again yesterday when Copyblogger launched “Authority.” That design is just too good.

    I’ll check out the typography book he referenced, too. I’m not designing as much lately because I recently jumping off into programming pretty heavily. I have this design itch going right now, though. I need to find something to design ASAP!

    Anyway, great interview. This is my first time here and you’re great on the mic, Matt. I’ll look around the archives for more.
