OpenDesigns.org : Open Web Templates for your website!

I found something interesting from StumbleUpon yesterday. An OpenSource website template community!!

The Open Design Community (TODC) is a group of Open Source Website Designers providing free web design templates helping to make the global internet a prettier place.
Our Goal

Our goal is to create a community owned and managed site, where users can share their free website designs and templates, discuss web design, and promote their services.


I browsed through the templates hosted there, and they are all awesome!. Almost all of them are well polished and professional looking and a lot are as high quality as expensive commercial web templates.

While browsing though, this Dark Ritual template caught my attention. I thought it'll look great for my blog. So I downloaded it and hacked it here and there to make it fit for Blogger's Layout engine and the product is, you're looking at it now!! (^-^)

Below is the modified Dark Ritual template for use in Blogger. For the image files , you can search and get it from OpenDesigns.org
