    Joomlart, where do you get your inspiration from?

    I have always been fascinated by the creativity of the JA Team.

    Hence my three questions:
    1. How do you get inspired... or where does your inspiration come from in relation to new templates? Each new template has some new stuff that makes it unique. And every time, I keep thinking (wrongly) the next template will not be better than the already released ones.
    2. How do you come up with such short and nice template names? Do you have a bank of names where each month you draw one out? If so, how did you get this bank filled with these names?
    3. Finally, the logos of your templates. With over 100 templates, each one comes with its look. This unicity makes JA, to my eyes, the best out there.

    I am puzzled by all this. In this rapidly changing environment, the ideas just keep on coming and coming and coming.

    Keep it up!

    Let me try to answer your questions.

    1. Inspiration:
    This is hard to explain. You need to be a designer to understand that. Inspiration comes from different sources. You see a lot you read a lot you have a sense of what could be done better you need to be open minded and you need to go with the mainstream but also have your unique touch (meaning courage to try something different). Mix all of it together and there you go with a new template idea

    2. Template names
    Mmmmhh.... not sure if we should share this secret here. But I ask you a question instead of answering your question. What do you think would the output of 50 brains would be when each at least give 1 idea for a series of template names?

    3. Logos
    This is a secret toolbox of our design team. Just let them do Might not be satisfying answer but this is the output of our team. We are also surprised how the always come up with new ideas.

    And sometimes just grab a (or more) glass of wine and beer and the ideas comes

    Cheers!

    It seems to me that inspiration is an entirely subjective issue . . . we all derive inspiration from different sources and elements - some which may seem strange or unconventional to others, but make complete sense to the individual.

    I will say that some inspiration for JATC Template development has come from suggestions posted (and explained) from people within our Request and Wishlist section of our Community Forum. Granted, not every suggestions and/or ideas can/will be realized ... but it certainly never hurts to share one's thoughts, ideas and suggestions for future template ideas.

    CASE ON POINT:
    It was through JA Community suggestions/requests that JA Methys saw the light of day
    - as it was originally released as a JDTC (Drupal only) template.
