ALL YOUR BASE (THEMES) ARE BELONG TO US

In all the years of designing for Drupal, the one thing I have learned is to always borrow from the best and build it into a base theme. Now, I know you’re saying to yourself — not another base theme. But why not? If I told you your theme could be responsive from the start, have flexible regions that you didn't have to design for, and that you could avoid the JQuery conflicts that plague Drupal 7, would you be interested?
