Nebulae - free google sites template

Hi all, Yup, still alive and hopefully, things'll be more active around here.


We'll releasing a heap of new templates in the near future. But in the meantime enjoy the latest template out of the stables. I'll be doing a writeup in the next couple of days and writing up some articles showing you how to recreate and personalise this template. So you can put your own twist on it.

So stay tuned!

As with most of the templates we create, this template is using the theme 'Blank Slate'.

Below are the site layout dimensions that were used.

To get the logo to sit aligned with the left margin of the site body was a bit of trial and error.

Essentially what had to be done was, the png was created with 150px's of extra transparent space to the left of where the word 'nebulae' started. This allowed the logo to be pushed to the right and not hover above the menu.

I was going to leave it above the menu, but I think that it looked a bit unbalanced. It's still not perfectly aligned but with all the inconsistancies with all the different browsers out there it'll never be perfect.

The rest of the look was just making use of different fonts and creating a bit of dynamic typography to grab your attention.

I've included a zip file below with all the resources needed to create this theme.

Enjoy and sign up to the group to let us know what you think.
