    No, you did not just say that you don't use templates.
    Code:
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/wp-content/themes/Iridescent/assets/css/bootstrap.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/wp-content/themes/Iridescent/assets/css/bootstrap-responsive.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/wp-content/themes/Iridescent/assets/css/app.css">
    RocketTheme Demos

    You got some 'splainin' to do.

    It is the Iridescent theme from RocketTheme and using 5 plug-ins. How is this not a template? What custom work have you done?

    When I first saw your site I thought it was about something other than a web designers site. Can you guess why that is?

    It's good. Some missing small details though like privacy, physical address in your contact form.

    Compare our website to RocketTheme's demo... they are coded differently. The points in an article that clarify this are from Is Your Website Using a Template? 5 Easy Steps to Find Out - CINQ Creative but below is a snippit from that article if you don't care to read it.

    Now that you have identified your site’s theme and located it’s origin/designer, we need to review the theme for any differences/likenesses.

    Look for any links for LIVE DEMO or SCREENSHOTS.

    These will allow you to view the working theme and identify similarities or differences in your website. Many designers that don’t have extensive programming experience choose to begin a client’s website with a theme such as this, mainly for the enhancements, plugins and complex site structure. They then overhaul the design to suit their client. This allows a designer to focus more on the “look” of the site and less on attempting to develop necessary functionality from scratch.

    So, your design, while using this specific theme, may look entirely different. You can then know that your website is unique to your business.

    However, if you review the theme demo and realize that your website is nearly identical, you then know that your website may be very similar to many other websites across the Internet, possibly even some within your own market or industry.

    So let me see if I understand this correctly. If your site doesn't look like the theme even though it is built off a template, then its not built off of a template? You either are or you're not using templates.

    The problem for me is this bit "This allows a designer to focus more on the “look” of the site and less on attempting to develop necessary functionality from scratch." This is a big red flag for me as it seems to me you believe the look of a site is far more important than functionality.

    Furthermore, because you have brought up not using templates it seems like you understand that using a template is at least in some way bad, yet you choose to use one anyway? What functionality in your site was so necessary to use without the willingness to code it yourself?

    OK, so apparently using a template and making some changes is not using a template... It is like buying a frozen ready-meal, adding your own sauce on top of it and calling it home made food.

    Hello all,
    I just join this forum, and at first look was little unsure shall i join or not because fonts were to small for my eyes. Just zoom in a bit and that problem was solved...

    I'm so glad that I joined, I was to busy for last few days and was bit tired, but omg after 3 posts I cant stop laughing .

    Lucca I have a question for you something that I spot as soon as I saw your website and others didnt want to talk about it or miss it or ignore it.

    Lucca your custom web design company (no, not templates), that so nice , can you please tell me are you a custom logo desig company also?

    I'm asking you this because I fall in love in your logo and was thinking to ask you can you get one for me too?

    I realy cant stop looking at that custom google hummingbird logo

    Keep up the good work
