So you want to build a classy – swanky new Drupal website and have already checked out hundreds of responsive themes available out there but there’s none that meet your expectations. What do you do? You develop your very own custom Drupal theme from the ground up. Creating your own theme is not as complicated as it sounds if you have a fair knowledge in Drupal.
There are a plethora of powerful and sleek looking themes that you can install and use – both free and paid, like Bootstrap, Zen, Omega, AdaptiveTheme, Skeleton etc. Once installed, if you can figure out the files structure and which files to modify according to your design, you would probably need to locate and modify some lines of code. This can be very tricky and the entire design might just collapse like a house of cards if you mess something up. Building your own Drupal theme can be your saviour. So if you have a decent knowledge in Drupal, CSS and HTML you should find it interesting and fun to do it yourself!
