Engage: Element, a new DotNetNuke 5 skin

Engage: Element is our latest commercial skin package release, including five bold color combinations, six unique containers, and three main layouts. Each layout choice comes with multiple panes designed to make your content shine whether you use all the panes together or just a few per page. Engage: Element is using the web standards approach, each layout is built with XHTML/CSS with some CSS3 enhancements (sorry IE users, you will not see text shadows). The skin itself has been cross-browser tested across most popular browsers. This skin is made to be flexible, easily accommodating any site small or large.

Engage: Folio a free skin package for DotNetNuKe

Engage: Folio is a minimal skin utilizing some CSS3 and javascript to give it a bit more style. Engage: Folio is based on another free wordpress template, Simple Folio created by Slimmity. We created containers to mimic the styles usd on the Simple Folio demo page, and created a custom rotator template to resemble the image slider featured. Look for that template in the next release of Engage: Rotator later this month!

Engage: Zeen a free skin package for DotNetNuKe

We decided to help spread the love to the DNN community by offering Engage: Zeen; a free skin package based on a Wordpress theme design created by WeFunction Design Agency especially for Smashing Magazine and their readers (Check it out). The theme was released free under a GPL, and open to modification and use for all types of projects without any restrictions. All they asked for in return was a link to the article to spread the word. The design simply rocks, and grew to be a popular favorite among Wordpress themes.

Engage: Direct At-a-Glance

by aoverkamp on Friday, October 2, 2009 11:06 AM

Engage: Direct is yet another design introduced for performance and variation. The skin design comes with three main layouts in five different colors choices. I designed the skin to accommodate large amounts of copy, with detail to the vertical scroll. The color options bring a casual feel to the site, and helps frame in the content being displayed. Engage: Direct uses subtle gradients, and soft color to give the overall site a warm, casual look and feel. This design is best suited for businesses that are content heavy, or smaller e-commerce sites.

As always I am interested in helping meet any further needs for custom skinning solutions. Feel free to ask any questions or comment on the skin using the support forums - feedback is always welcome! I am excited to offer more skins for the DotNetNuke community.

Simple Design Reflected Through Engage: TRANSLUCENT

by aoverkamp on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 3:31 PM

Engage: TRANSLUCENT is a clean, simple design fully optimized for site performance and customization. The skin would be ideal for any small business site, personal site, blog, or online portfolio. The inspiration for the design revolves around my belief in the importance of whitespace, or negative space, as well as a detailed eye on typography. This skin acts as a nice minimal support for bold content, or as a great springboard for those who are a little more DIY, but need a bit of a head start with the code.

I’m proud to announce that we’ve released our second commercial skin, Engage: BEFITTING. It is available  for purchase on our site or at Snowcovered.

The release of Engage:BEFITTING is also a pretty good time for me to introduce myself; so hello there. My name is Anthony Overkamp, and I am a designer here at Engage Software. This skin package is my first of hopefully many new designs to come to help provide clean, flexible design and presence on the web.
