Starting out as an author

Hi all!

I am a computer science grad and wanted to start making website templates/themes to sell but I am unsure of where to begin!

Can anyone give me a few tips?

Thanks in advance!

Try reading books about wordpress theme, familiarity is the key. Try to decide whether you want to use existing framework or design your own. Studying wordpress will also help improve your php coding skills, it helps a lot since it uses OOP.

Also study design such as typography, alignment then observe existing website.I’m still studying the playing field but so far that’s what i have learned. Hope this is helpful
