Question: I am no frontend designer, but is there a good resource of HTML templates that are built well. That anyone can recommend for me to use for some upcoming demos, otherwise they gonna be damn UGLY if I do them.
Ideally not HTML5up.net (Seen those styles to death IMO) 🙈

I think Warren is talking about static themes to use to build an umbraco site and make dynamic, right?

Sorry I mentioned this outside the thread but I think the designs are very nice and it's really easy to use: https://tailwindui.com/
Think Bootstrap for Tailwind

Run through the wordpress theme repository. They have a preview function, where you can scrape the html 🙂
