For a Dutch language school we need a new Moodle theme based on the Essential theme. 'Essential' is a 3rd party theme which hosts a few extra features, mainly to transform Moodle's frontpage into a more regular website (a commercial landing page).
For an example of the Essential theme in a running Moodle installation, take a look at http://www.babeljar.com (ask for a demo account through email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
The new theme can be a clone of the Essential theme with regard to the layout files (and renderers). This means you would 'only' have to change the css files.
In addition to the standard layouts, there are also three plugins (blocks) whose design needs to be incorporated into the new theme:
- a course overview, displayed on top of the main content area
- a topic tabs block which is always visible once you're inside a course
- and, similar to the previous block, a section icons block
The actual design (colors, fonts, etc.) should be based on the language school's website (see attachment).
A final note: the Essential theme is completely responsive. The new design (css) should also be completely responsive.
