Design is important, but it's like a mirage—always just outside your reach.
Themes never exactly fit your content, so you have to make changes. The poorly written code means making those changes takes longer than it should. You waste precious hours. In the end, your site still looks cobbled together because your edits don't match the original design.
And you still don't even have a logo.
Themes only provide one layout, but your business has more than one page. A blog, landing page, and web app are all important parts of your business, and you need them all to look good. You would love to have professional, matching designs and a great UX for all your sites, but with themes, that feels impossible.
It seems safer to just use Bootstrap and leave your site looking like everyone else's. At least then you're not wasting time and money on a theme that won't look right anyway.
But there's a nagging voice in the back of your mind:
Design shouldn't be this hard. There must be an easier way.
How much easier would it be if you had flexible design components you could mix and match? What if you knew that whatever combination you picked, it would just work?
Achieve noteworthy design with matching layouts for all your sites using Cascade. Get layouts, fonts, color schemes, graphics, and even logos—pre selected to match perfectly—all in one place. Be certain your design looks amazing, and never wrangle artless themes again.
Using Cascade is like having an interpreter in a foreign land. It's a design framework that speaks fluent Developer, allowing me to quickly compose great-looking designs that would otherwise take me hours or days to hack together on my own.Jamie Gaines, Zig Internet Solutions.
You and your business deserve better than a tacky theme.
That's why I built the Cascade Design Framework to be a flexible, robust design tool that consistently gets you amazing results—even if you aren't very good at design.
Customize a few LESS variables and compile the CSS to get a completely new aesthetic. Quickly paste your content into Cascade's markup and you'll have a beautiful site you can be proud of.
Bootstrappers tell me all the time how much they hate using themes, but there doesn't seem to be anything better out there. The Cascade framework is built for developers. I've personally written every single line of code with you in mind—no generated code—so that using Cascade is incredibly comfortable and quick. If you've ever used Bootstrap, you'll feel right at home. But Cascade adds all the visual design you wished Bootstrap had, in keeping with the same spirit of customization.
The beautiful design on patternsinpolymer.com is thanks to Cascade. HIGHLY recommended. Put simply: wonderful. I can fumble through design, but I need a designer in my ear: “That color? That font pairing? Why not try?” That's Cascade.Chris Strom
