How Bureau 14 started their custom wordpress themes journey

Company name

Bureau 14

Overview

Hi and thank you for considering this design contest. We care deeply about design and beauty generally speaking.

We are a 2 years old French startup located in Paris. We do technical "hardcore" stuff that will probably cause you some sort of subdural hematoma if we go through the full description.

Most of our work focuses on software security, high performance computing and somehow accidentally creating skynet.

Our customers ranges from the defense industry to other startups.

All of our clients are very nice and we love them very much!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Two main classes of posts, technical related and business related.

Technical posts are pretty hardcore and dwell deeply into details and insights. They generally are about advanced C++ programming and aim senior developers (like us).

Business posts are thoughts related to how we run the company. They aim managers and startup founders (like us).

Sometimes we post miscellaneous stuff such as pictures taken during a trip, the latest geek toy we acquired or some random thought about the inner mysteries of the universe.

The goal is to increase the awareness about our work and simply share our love for what we do.

Requirements

The blog must be correctly rendered by IE7, IE8, Opera and FF3. Note that we don't impose IE6. If you can make it work for IE6, all the better, but we don't require it.

We're not into having the branding and our logo all over the blog. The blog is intended to be a more relaxed zone where we can talk about the stuff we love to do. Although we'll probably use that space to promote our new products, we'd like people to understand it's first of all a blog where the programmers of the company write what goes through their mind.

Make sure the current posts of the blog "fit" into your design (especially the ones with code and/or images).

Now to the theme.

One of our ideas is to have some sort of theme that looks like the old fashioned XIXth century printed commercials and brochures (Wondermark web site by David Malki can give you an idea of what we mean by that).

The perfect blend of modern structure, old fashioned graphics, typography and talent will lead to a theme we'll love.

The title of the blog "Fresh out of the labs" may give you additional inspiration, especially combined with the above description.

Other ideas we had : Art Déco, Steampunk, Minimalism, "1990 web".

For the rest although snob and obnoxious as all French people, we're very open minded about design and possibilities, so please, surprise us!
