@jamesbloomfield I like to design themes for each site. I get so tired of seeing the same design over and over again. It’s important to brand your company or your blog so people can connect with you and not see some cookie-cutter design.
Many people use frameworks like Genesis or Thematic, but I can not stand them! They make life very difficult for us web developers and I cringe when my clients come to me using one. I’d much prefer to use a theme that has no proprietary framework behind it and create a design that matches their branding – MUCH better solution, IMHO.
