Speaker Feature: Megan Gray

gray_meganMegan Gray (@houseofgrays) of Orange County, CA is presenting in the Designer/Developer track of the 2013 Reno-Tahoe WordCamp. Her session, titled Extreme Theme Makeover, will show you how to make your WordPress theme look exactly the way that you want it to look.

You’ve purchased your brand new premium WordPress theme and you’re ready to get started. Just one thing: you need to make it your own. Whether you need to create something totally unique for your client on a budget, build a site that “doesn’t look bloggy,” or just want something that has that “wow” factor, theme customizations are a great time-saving, cost-effective option. I’ll show you how you can achieve a custom look from an out of the box theme, and what’s possible with just a little imagination, basic HTML/CSS, and some image editing software. I’ll also discuss what to look for when shopping for themes so you can keep your customizations simple but stunning—and steer clear of “the scary code”! Why reinvent the wheel when you can just make it beautiful?

Leave us a comment if you have any questions you would like to have answered in Megan’s presentation.
