BrightMist Designs - Easy Affordable Wordpress themes

BrightMist began in 2007 as a small illustration business selling my designs. With this in mind, it seems suitable to talk about my own development as this accumulated to the birth of my small business

I have trained myself through college, university and industry over the course of many years, from small beginnings to understand the ins and out of WordPress themes, great design and branding. I now work full time for a large corporation. I love my job, so my themes are just a little side development. In this way, I feel I am better able to support them at my own pace and build high-quality handcrafted features.

Affordable WordPress themes giving you the power to update your own website fuss-free. Ability to update basic areas on your website without the need to employ someone else. A flexible clean theme that just does what it says on the tin.

Easily set up within hours so you can concentrate on building your business.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
I'm not sure if I understand the restriction on themes upload. Does it mean I have to find hosting and a domain name?

Not for Blogger themes as is free to use!
Yes for my Wordpress themes you do need your own hosting and domain. I use for mine!
LIGHTBOX Theme -- I really like this theme in white. I see in photo that it's all white, no brown wood background in sight. So, can the brown wood background be left out?

Yes the theme comes without the background setup. You can upload your own background or leave it white. Whichever suits!
Also, can the main header/title area at the top be a bit taller/wider if my logo needs that to present well?

Yes you can have taller and even full width logos. Any size is easy to upload.
 I want to launch my blog before I have 6 stories/posts; I'm supposing the six photos on the main page correspond or would correspond to 6 different blog posts (that would be ideal for me). So, can the main home page have 1 photo, then 2, then 3, as my posts increase, to eventually culminate at 6? I will have more posts, but I assume the latest posts will fill the 6 photo spots automatically?

Yes I have a comprehensive tutorial for setting up the gallery layout. It's very easy to have as many thumbnails as you want. They are post categories so you can add one by one just like you would on the blog.

Theme installation - Does the theme have to be from your store? 
Yes I only Install my themes. All theme creators support they're own!
How do I add more categories or add content UNDER a heading in the sidebar?

This is a wordpress user question you should be asking the forums about.
Although I have tutorials I don't teach how to use wordpress. I recommend becoming familiar with it first.
Can I tweak this site design?

Yes you can tweek the design, there are a few options such as easy upload background images/color, no knowledge of coding needed for demo layouts, logo upload tool, link colors. any further changes just depend on your knowledge of CSS really.
Do you support third party shopping apps such as gumroad or ribbon?

These two tools don't need support. They will work as expected due to they fantastic design integration. Gumroad just requires a free plugin. Easy peasy! For marketplace shops I only support woocommerce in the demo.
Do you sell any responsive themes?

Of course, this is kind of obvious as its displayed on all of my theme titles.
Help! I've installed your theme and there is just a blank page?

This is normal of most wordpress themes on initial setup. I do supply a comprehensive blog that is updated every other week with how to guides and videos etc. There is also an easy 'customiser option' built into the theme. Any problems I'm happy to point you in the right direction. If you're well versed in using wordpress it shouldn't take more than a few hours to setup

Do you have any blog themes?

All my themes are optimised blogging. You can choose in wordpress settings whether to have the blog as your front page or a static page, which can accommodate my various page template options.
What does responsive mean?

It means my themes are flexible with desktop, tablets and mobiles. You can check this by stretching your browser window in and out. You will notice the page content starts to move around to accommodate the change in size.
hello, my website is a wordpress site, but my host is through dream host will your templates work?
Yes my themes will work on any self hosted site
Hi I bought one of your wordpress themes but I have no idea what I am doing I didn't realize you offer installation for an extra price. I will pay the extra price to have you fix my site for me! I hope you can do this. I already paid for wordpress premium and a dominion name and all that so I have to have my site on wordpress. I bought your simplicity theme! Please let me know if you can help! sites dont allow you to upload themes. You need a self hosted site.
This is a nice clean theme. Could you please tell me if this theme supports WooCommerce?

Yep it's in the demo
Lightbox / simplicity / Paperdolls
I wanted to know if there are any design differences between the 3? Which would allow me the most flexibility for layouts? 

It really depends what you want in your site to do. With all my themes you can make the homepage any one of the page layouts on the specific theme demos. SIMPLICITY is my most basic as it is very flexible with layouts and clean. PAPERDOLLS is a little most advanced as you can change the colour of the entire background, it has two custom fonts built in and you can have smaller blog image thumbnails. Check the demo to see the difference between simplicity and paper dolls blog pages. LIGHTBOX is my favourite for artists, photographers, gallery and shops. If you want a portfolio style site the 'page of posts gallery' option is a custom function bespoke to this theme. Lightbox also has a one column layout for single blog posts. Paperdolls is the only one where you can change the entire background, but like lightbox, with simplicity you can also upload your own background image.

Apart from these differences all the themes have the same functions as shown in the demos. Such as you can have full width, choose the sidebar arrangement and have tiled galleries etc
Do you do any custom graphics, or background designs etc? for WP or other?

Yes I'm adding new branding packs all the time to go with my themes. Let me know if you have any requests for a specific theme.
I am interested in this theme, but just wanted to ask if there is any coding issues, can I contact you for help or is this "as is"?

Yes of course you can. I make sure my themes are as perfect as they can be, so you shouldn't have any problems, but I'm always available for support if you need any. I've also include a 'How to guides' blog. If you're well versed in using wordpress it shouldn't take more than an hour or two to setup.
