Creating themes from ThemeForest.net and similar

Hi all,

We are on a research that will tell us if Orchard CMS is a suitable CMS for us or not. One of important questions we need to be answered is theme authoring. We know plenty of themes exists for Orchard, but many customers may need another themes.

Usually we have themes (html/css) created by designer from a custom PSD or themes from sites that sell ready themes like ThemeForest.net. Is it possible and/or easy to create Orchard CMS themes from those themes?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello Afsharm,
Orchard is very easy to theme. I have myself converted two themeforest themes into fully working orchard-themes with great result. Feel free to ask more

@gmorken,

Nice to hear that Orchard is easy to theme. I hope in addition to designers, it is easy for developers too.

Just for a reference to Orchard and others CMS themes, have a look to http://BindTuning.com
Have some themes for Orchard, all customizable to fit your branding.
You also can try the trials by installing in your environment before buying a theme.

In 30 minutes have a sharp looking Orchard theme installed and running vs. 1 to 2 weeks of custom development.
