19 Base Themes for Drupal

26
Oct
2009

Drupal theming can be much faster and easier when you use base (starter, parent) theme as a foundation. A base theme usually has nearly no css styling, provides theme regions, advanced features, and its purpose is to enable you to create new themes fast, focusing on changing design to code.

Base Theme Classics

Zen
Zen is the ultimate starting theme for Drupal. If you are building your own standards-compliant theme, you will find it much easier to start with Zen than to start with Garland or Bluemarine. This theme has fantastic online documentation and tons of code comments for both the PHP (template.php) and HTML (page.tpl.php, node.tpl.php).

Framework
Framework is a blank canvas for theme developers. Use Framework as a user friendly starting point to help facilitate your theme development.

Free Website Style Guide Photoshop Template

If you are a website designer, you probably know that having a clear and well prepared style guide can save an enormous amount of time for developer and save the designer from having to explain the design details over and over. That's why I have created a blank website style guide template. I hope it will enable designers to speed up their design process and bring more beautiful designs to our community. As a Drupal designer I hope it could be used as a Photoshop styleguide for more Drupal designers.

A fully layered, well documented, blank Photoshop PSD template, with all design elements, typography tags, comments, ads, poll and many more, to speed up your design process and make your developers happier. It’s well documented layers make it super easy to adjust it to your needs, apply layer styles and add colors or effects as needed. Using the 960px grid system with guidelines makes layout rearranging a matter of seconds.

This tempalte was made based on a design I made for NDN.org and sponsored by CivicActions - a Drupal company I worked for.
