This is the first part of creating my Tumblr. theme, I'll be posting sketches, my personal issues (which I will hopefully solve) and so on... It will also be some sort of a log...
So in this first part, I'll be covering some of my ideas that I have on creating my first Tumblr. theme...
Because I have totally no experience with creating Tumblr. themes, I think this could become an interesting guideline for people who are creating their first Tumblr. theme too.
Getting some ideas
The best way to get some ideas of creating a Tumblr. theme is to check Tumblelogs. So, let's go to the Tumblr. Directory and start discovering some blogs...
The first blog I came across was this one which directed me to this blog (The maker of this blog is the designer of the first blog).
The 'From me to you' blog:
+ Nice (vintage) design
+ They have a comment system which is not standard on Tumblr.
- It isn't made for my resolution (1024x768)
The 'WTF is Pant One" blog:
+ It has some nice details (like the audio posts)
- Not made for my resolution...
Some other sites to get inspired from:
So you see, just search the directory to get some nice Tumblelogs that could give you some ideas...
The ideas that I have inside my head...
- Group Blog (multiple writers)
Meta Data (date, tags, notes, likes,...)
An avatar of the poster which links to their site
About me Page/area
So when you have some ideas, you can start creating your first Design, I made this sketch:
In the next part of this 'serie', I'll be covering my problems when transferring this sketch into a .psd...
