As all other first blogs on WordPress we are also beginning with the title “Hello world!”. We would like to announce that WPZOO has started up and is ready for action. WPZOO is a new provider of WordPress extensions based in Switzerland.
Stefan and I are convinced that we will be able to provide products are a good mix between code and design. We look forward to hear what you think about our products and services.
Birth of WPZOO
It all started with my blogpost “Developer seeking Designer“. I went on my first date with Stefan for coffee and told him of my plans to start a WordPress meetup in Bern, the capital of Switzerland. He told me about his theme that he was working on.
After a few further dates we decided to work together to build an online shop for WordPress extensions. That was in summer 2014. One and a half year later we are so far that we are ready to open our gates.
What’s with the name?
You may wonder where the name WPZOO comes from. The idea came from Stefan’s first theme AlbinoMouse. So we decided to give the future themes also animal names.
We try to connect the character and looks of the animal with the themes features. If we are successful is for you to decide. Our latest addition being “PENGU!N“. We call our currently still small collection of animals a zoo respectively WPZOO.
The three main points simple, fast and flexible which we show on the front page is what we place value when building new products. You will not find any themes here which have every possible options and full of custom post types. Our goal is to develop slim solutions that are aligned with WordPress core and represent the guidelines on WordPress.org.
