Five years ago, I was inspired to start Themify by a vision to build a tool which allows designers (like myself) to build WordPress themes without coding skills. Today, I’m proud to announce that my vision has come true. Say hello to Themify Flow, a free WordPress framework which allows you to build and customize themes without requiring any PHP or CSS coding. Everything is done within WordPress with an intuitive drag & drop interface.
Four years ago, Darcy Clarke and I started Themify with a framework coded from scratch along with a few WordPress themes. Today, I’m happy to see Themify grew from a few themes to a large collection of responsive themes such as the Music theme, Fullpane, Event, Flatshop, Parallax, Magazine, Elemin, and the popular Builder plugin. Themify couldn’t have done any of this without the awesome Themify team, customers, friends, and the community. Thank you!
Update: the winners are Ethan, Chris, Francois, Anthony, and Daniel. Congrats!
IconDock has been a labour of love for me: thousands of people have purchased and used my icons in all sorts of projects. After so many years of the classic IconDock design, I decided to update the look and feel to reflect the current trends in web design that I follow, and give it a shiny new coat of paint. In addition, several icon sets have been converted into icon fonts, intended for designing and developing for retina. You can now purchase all 12 unique icon font sets from IconDock for the one time flat fee of $29!
Finding inspiration has always been part of my work and life. I created Best Web Gallery back in 2006 as my personal bookmark tool where I featured the best design on the web. I’ve featured more than 1700+ sites in the past years. Today I’m happy to announce the redesign. The new design gives the site a huge facelift and more functional.

I just wanted to post a quick announcement that I will be speaking at Mad in Spain on June 3rd, 2011 (organized by Domestika). This will their 6th anniversary. Mad in Spain is one of the biggest design conferences in Spain. My presentation topic is about applying art in modern web design. After the conference, I will be spending a week in Barcelona and a week in Paris after that. I will be touring and working during those time.
Recently I’ve joined a group of artists to support Japan earthquake relief efforts. Each artist contributed a piece of art work dedicated to raise funds. The artworks will be displayed and available for purchase at the To Japan with Love (Facebook event) art show which is organized by Linda Nakanishi. All proceeds from the show will be donated to Canadian Red Cross.
