Creating my first Tumblr. theme (Part I)




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:

Mark Jardine
Jonathan Moore

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...


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...
