For quite some time we have been using WordPress for our site development, but we never got around to revising the Nile Street Multimedia site into this platform.
When WordPress came out with the TwentyTwelve theme I thought maybe now is the time to take our site and translate the existing look into a WordPress site using TwentyTwelve as a base. I still basically liked the look of the existing site so it was rather just a case of rebuilding the back-end.
One thing about TwentyTwelve is that it is very much designed to work across a range of devices rather than being a theme that is designed for a desktop and then tweaked for mobile and tablets as an afterthought. This made it pretty easy to create a good mobile solution.
Across the board I’m pretty happy with TwentyTwelve as a basis for building a theme. TwentyEleven is too complex to use as a base for building a theme although it is great as simple site that pretty much uses the theme out of the box. I think it is time to retire TwentyTen which has been my favorite for starting a new development.
Many thanks to Jeannie Wilksch at Cultivate Design for revising the header images.
