Customizing the Kubrick (Default) theme for WordPress

Customizing the Kubrick (Default) theme for WordPress

Here’s a catchup for some people. WordPress is the software that runs this blog. Kubrick is the default theme that comes with it. You’ve probably seen it on a million blogs and on this one. However, I wanted to customize mine with darker colors, like some of my previous designs. I also wanted to have my picture up in the header part and again, darker colors.

I thought I was going to have to open photoshop and try to individually change the rasterized images since I didn’t have any vector files (psd) to work with, but thankfully some guy (he didn’t put his name on his blog) created a PSD version of the Kubrick theme, including rasterized and vector layers. Naturally I went with the premade vector layers, overlaid a new image on top of it, and about 10 minutes later, I had the theme I had always dreamed of. Thanks “some guy”!

In other news, I got my roommate Courtney to start a blog. He wasn’t using his domain for anything except email, so I set up wordpress and a nice theme for him too. I even photoshopped his picture onto the green hillside 🙂 He couldn’t help but use it, after I did all the work.
