Kenny Sing Joins The ET Design Team

Since its inception, I have been Elegant Themes’ sole designer. However, finding inspiration in isolation often proves a difficult task, which is why we have finally acquired some fresh new talent! Today I am excited to welcome Kenny Sing to the Elegant Themes family. Kenny is a super-awesome, mega-talented designer that we have known for some time, and I can’t wait to see what great new themes we will build together. In fact, we are already hard at work, and you can expect our upcoming themes to be among the best in our collection.

  1. Sweet. :)

  2. Hi guys,

    Congratulations. Nothing like a growing business! A suggestion – how about a couple new business themes? I’m using Chameleon for the third time because it’s a good general purpose theme, but the look and feel could perhaps use a style update.

    Thanks!

    • I´m with you, Chris

      I also think it´s time for some new and modern general business theme. I really liked the last releases, but I´m kinda missing a good substitute for Chameleon.

      • Hey Nick,

        I think something that some of the older themes are better for than Foxy is for service-driven businesses over product-driven businesses. Foxy looks great if you have a physical object presented in the bar, but it feels impractical to display the type of scene or location one might need a service. For example, if a company provides on-site auditing, the Foxy theme isn’t ideal. The slider isn’t really built to display photos of the types of situations they might be auditing. I love Foxy, and it’s great when your client has a product to sell, but services are a little more vague and harder to display in a large slider that thrives on objects isolated on a transparent background.

    • We have created two business themes recently in Vertex and Foxy. Is there something that you need from a theme that Chameleon has and these themes don’t?

      • Hi Nick,

        I would say that Vertex and Foxy are great themes particularly for service business, and mostly for a single kind of service (specially Vertex with its immediate call to action). For some client websites I´ve been lately missing a more general and flexible business theme. Don´t take me wrong, I do think that those two themes are quite flexible. But if you don´t use some of their features because they won´t fit within your particular site, they will loose a lot of their appeal.

        • Well luckily we are working on our most flexible theme ever right now, and I think you are going to love it :) It should be ready in a month or so – it’s going to take a lot of work!

  3. Awesome. This is good. Nick, I had no idea that you were the sole designer behind ET. I thought for sure you had a crew helping with design. That’s awesome that you’re bringing in someone else, it’ll add diversity and take some weight off your shoulders.

    • Yes, it’s been just me for a while, but I can’t wait to start collaborating with another creative mind :)

      • Congrats Kenny. I hope you will create some awesome themes. We are waiting…

  4. The Bigger the team size, better will be the quality of the collaborative output.

    Congrats Nick, keep on growing!

    :D

    • Thanks Pranjal, you are definitely right!

  5. Great News! Looking forward to the new theme!

  6. Congratulations! I’ll look forward to the “new blood” in the designs. I love your themes – don’t get me wrong. But a little fresh ideas won’t harm ;-)

    • Some fresh ideas certainly wont hurt! No offense taken :)

  7. Just checked out some of Mr. Sing’s work. It’s pretty slick. Can’t wait to see the new themes he helps put out.

  8. Awesome news! The new theme looking great. Looking forward to check it out.

  9. Awesome… can’t wait.

    Hey Kenny, can’t wait to see what you ca do.

    Thank Nick, glad to see your business is growing.

    Have a great day guys.

    • Thanks Richard!

  10. Love your themes. Would be nice thoughts have just a page option with slider on the home pages. Keep up good work

  11. Congrats! Looking forward to more great themes ahead!

  12. Congrats on joining the team, Kenny! I’m looking forward to seeing what you have in store – still waiting on Nexus as well! Serene looks amazing as well, minimal but beautiful. Keep it up!

  21. Welcome Kenny Sing,

    “glimpse at our upcoming ultra clean and simply beautiful blogging theme SERENE”

    what happened to NEXUS ?

    • Yeah. I was wondering about that, too.

    • Don’t worry, Nexus will be ready soon :)

  22. As someone already stated above, i had neither the idea that you were the only designer. Well i can only hope for the best concerning the future of ET, maybe you’ll touch the moon like the original E.T :-D

  23. This is great news! Really excited to see another perspective on the ET design team. I could only imagine how much richer your catalog will become!! Congratulations on this milestone.

  24. Welcome!

  29. Hi, thank’s for this very good news. And good luck for Kenny and your team !

  30. Yah I agree with Chris down there. I love the new full width designs. Very modern. Would be great to get a couple more business themes to use!

  31. Welcome Kenny!. Looking forward to your new creations. I work with a lot of First-time Authors, trying to promote their books. Hope that little seed helps to germinate some creativity in that genre.

  32. I’m excited for this theme! I definitely see the Google Card/Now Interface inspiration and I have been waiting for a WP thing like this

  33. This is fantastic news, I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with now…

  34. definitely excited for this new theme – it looks all google now-ey

  35. Kenny Sing Welcome to the ET family…

    I am a big fan of ET, loved most of the themes but can’t resist to say that “FUSION” was simply staggering.

    Zestfully looking forward to the next project ( blogging theme )…

    Keep doing marvelous works…

    Kudos!!!

  36. Awesome!!!

  37. I use Minimal for my own site, but we recently used Aggregate and it worked very well for a CSA Farm site!

    I agree that more various designs with more area for content and less for large imagery is good for businesses.

  38. Welcome kenny, hope u gonna sing a new song for ET? The bigger the better
    and thank God, I can bet two themes per month!

  39. Good catch. Hope he adds value in ET team. All the best to him and ET team.

  40. Welcome Kenny singh !

    You should also release Tumblr themes ! only one theme is available, there are many themes from the vault – best fit for Tumblr. !

  41. It’s a very good news to see the awesome Elegant Themes family still growing…

    Alex from

  42. Congrats! I was wondering if the first image is taken in your HQ? It’s awesome that you’re all working on Macs! Love the ecosystem! Btw now that you have Kenny on board, how big is the team?

    • Yep, that’s our HQ in San Francisco. Our team of 20 is mostly distributed – we only have 3 people working out of this office at the moment, but we plan on growing!

  43. Hopefully he is someone who is able to get simple text formatting right. Margin of list items for example is messed up in all your themes. They all look nice. Until you display content with them that is different from your demo page content. Or is that so that freelancers can bill more hours for bullshit?

    Sorry for the harsh language, but the sloppy typography in your themes bugs me for a long time now.

    • I hope so too.

  44. Welcome Kenny Sing!!! I like your name!

  45. Hi Nick and ET Team!

    You continue to amaze us! I am eagerly waiting for the release of Serene theme. I am certain is going to be as good as Fable and Vertex! :)
    I would also like to welcome Kenny!
    I am sure that you Nick in collaboration with Kenny will create outstanding themes in the future. A sneak peak of the Serene theme is just a sign of it.
    Without a doubt Kenny will Sing some beautiful and elegant themes out of his creativity :)

    Thank you once again!
    Timur

  46. best of luck to You and to ET Team for future & hope to reward best for you guys :)

  47. Kenny, so excited for you and proud of what you have accomplished in a very short time! You deserve all this for all the time you have put into making your dream a reality! As your mom, I could talk forever letting people know what an amazing designer you are, but most of all, what a great person you are. I am proud to say you are my son. Welcome to ET and look forward to seeing what you and Nick have in store. I love you forever! MOM

    • Thanks, Mom! :D

  48. On behalf of all the newbie site designers that have learned so much from Nick, I’d like to say “Welcome to ET”. You instantly have a huge following and much support!
