Hi all,

I think Ubuntu Studio theme is now ready for review (apologize for 
slower progress recently).

Please check the latest demo update in http://ubuntustudio.playmain.com/
If you want to take a look at the dashboard, you could use your usual 
login account.

We have committed & pushed the theme code to Launchpad:

This doc contains a guide to set up the theme, required steps to 
replicate what in demo site, and also dev notes on how to modify the theme.

XML export file (from demo site)
This file useful to replicate what on the demo site. Just in case you 
need it.

Other assets files
It contains footer mixer image from Unsplash 
https://unsplash.com/photos/_mugHa5Fc3M, and twitter & facebook icons 
taken from their official brand guidelines. They are to be added in 
customizer. Feel free to replace it with a more properly licensed photo, 

Just let me know if you need a hand setting up the website, or need some 

Currently, the theme has 2 designs: homepage, and inner pages.
Inner pages are all looking the same, even though it allows for some 
limited customization (eg: full width/no sidebar)
So if you have any improvement ideas, for example, want to make a custom 
download page, we are happy to discuss.

Best regards,
