Build Your Own Custom Theme: Hello Headway Course

Jonathan and Lea Woodward are running a five day course to teach people how to build a custom WordPress theme using Headway.  If you have always wanted a custom look and feel for your site but cannot afford a custom design costing several thousand dollars this course is for you.

Who Are Jonathan and Lea?

I’ve worked with this dynamic duo on a number of projects as client, as their contractor and as business partner on a couple of joint ventures and they are a great team, Jonathan is a design guru ( he did the custom design for my site) and Lea is a marketing and tech side of the partnership.

Between them they have an excellent set of skills which makes this course sound so interesting.

Why A Custom Theme

Headway is the theme framework I use for all of my sites and clients sites, it allows you to create a custom theme using drag and drop designer.  You get a custom look and feel without the need for coding skills, this course will teach you how to do that.

I Was Looking Into This Option

I was planning to build my own Headway course like this but I felt I lacked the design skills to pull it off, I’ve shelved that idea and now I’m going to direct everyone to Jonathan and Lea’s course if they want to learn Headway.  Jonathan’s design skills and Lea’s tech coaching skills will make this a great course.
