Obox-design is a design studio offering WordPress themes for websites and blogs. Their themes are developed to meet the requirements of business, news and entertainment sites. You can also use a theme for your personal website or blog. The company is made up of two people who have a considerable presence in the business.
Obox offers only 14 WordPress themes as of July 2010. The collection is considerably smaller compared to the range of theme selection provided by bigger players on the market, such as Elegantthemes and Press75. Still, it can be said that the diversity of themes is sufficient. The Obox themes have good functionality with cross browser compatible. Each theme comes with a template for multiple pages.
There is a menu management feature which allows you to organize the menus as you like. You can find an ad management feature as well. The adding of a custom logo and comments is made easy. There is a tool for automatic image resizing. All themes from Obox are search engine optimized. There is an analytic feature available for installation.
The Obox-design’s themes have classic header images, which are usually in the form of pictures. The colors are standard, but the range of shades is not the most attractive feature of the themes. There is not a grate contrast of color between the different elements. Still, this does not affect the functionality of the themes negatively.
The placement of elements is attractive but there are more impressive designs coming from providers like Templatelite and Elegantthemes. The fonts are standard and have good readability.
Example Themes developed by Obox-Design:
You can get a standard package with 2 Obox themes for $50. You have no choice, but to buy two even if you want one. The single price is then $25, which is considerably lower than the $75 you can pay for an Press75 theme.
You can also get a blogging theme for $15, but it will be missing some important features, such as layered image files and OCMX plug-in. You can get a developer pack with 2 themes for $100. If you have $50 more in budget, it is advisable for you to sign-up for their all-in-one package which is priced at $150.
The main document for all Obox themes can be found on the company’s website. Personal theme support is available only through the support forum. You will usually get a helpful reply, but you might have to wait for some time. Generally, the service is standard.
Overall, Obox-design offers diverse and functional themes with good graphics and the price is inline with market rate.
