Simple website in 2 hours on a $400 budget! Sela theme + custom colour
Today I was asked to whip up a simple website with a budget of $400, and only a few hours to do it. Here’s the result: heikefowler.com.au
The site uses the free Sela theme from wordpress.org which I chose because it’s free, it’s minimalist (making it simple & quick to customise), it’s clean and professional (which suits the client’s style) and the code looks great (always a plus!).
The only customisation I made was the color scheme, changing it from peach, to a nice shade of teal. Here’s the CSS I used – feel free to use this for your own project:
Obviously you can replace the color codes with your own choice of color.
I was really impressed with the theme. Obviously one could pimp it out a heap more than this and utilise the widgets, page template and other features the theme provides. But in it’s simplest state, I feel Sela theme is a great choice for a professional business website with a breezy style …especially if you’re on a small budget and tight time frame! Recommended.
