Modern RapidWeaver Theme Pack
Create Astonishing Web Pages

Normally: $90.00

ZOT Price: $45.00

Click to MacZOT Try Now  

The Modern Theme Pack by Rapid Ideas includes 5 highly professional themes for the web design tool Rapidweaver. Our clean and crisp designs will turn your project into a web 2.0 rich website, including many variations to choose from and many features not found in any other themes.

Most of our clients are from the creative or artistic sector who want to present their work in a clean and stylish way. And If you’re looking for advanced and customizable themes for your private blog or business site, you should have a closer look on the Rapid Ideas Themes.

The pack consists of the 5 latest themes: Drawer, Konzern, POP, Present and Raster

See the themes in detail here…

Some Features to mention


Many Style Variations

You can fine tune your pages with custom colors, images and also set specific layout options.
Rapid Ideas themes come with many style variations which can turn a simple RW site into an artistic and personally designed webpage.

Custom Colors

You can choose from a wide range of custom color variations for many parts of the designs.
Give your page the exact colors and impression you want.

Mediabox or Greybox

I am sure you already have found pages which uses “lightboxes” to present media. I chose to feature Mediabox (or MediaboxAdvanced) and Greybox in my designs.
These libraries are preinstalled and easy to enable. You can show additional information
to the user without opening a new window or redirecting them to another site – and this means: they will stay longer on your site!

Extra Content

In some of my latest themes (Drawer and Raster in this pack) I added my own implementation of “Extra Content”.
This means you can add content to additional parts of the layout. Simply add a slideshow to the header or a stacks page
to the footer. The possibilities are endless.

Browser Support

Of course, cross-browser support is always very important to me. You can be sure your site looks fine on all modern browsers:
Firefox 3.5+, Safari4, IE7, IE8, Opera10
Also almost all themes still support IE6, even this browser is not officially supported by me anymore.

Slick Animations

There are people who like animations, others don’t. For me Animation was never just to be cool. They need to add value to the design.
I added discreet menu animation to Drawer, POP and Raster, which can also be disabled.


Reinhard Maag: I was taken by your designs and find them in a Swiss Graphics tradition of: Clean + Clear = Convincing

Nicolai Gregersen: I must say – you truly are an artist at this. I am a relatively newbie RW user, but your designs came to my attention from start. They are miles from what other designers offer, both in usability and appearance. If the winter olympics had a discipline called RW design (on ski?) – you’d be sure to get the gold…

Melanie Morschel: Your themes are the best ones out there

Jason: Thanks for your creative talents!!

Don Newmeyer: I really think your ideas are more visually appealing and creative then the other RW theme designers

Daniel Will: Another reason I find myself using your themes rather than others is your use of type. As a long time typographer, I’ve been disappointed by how other themes treat type. Only yours seem to have some sense of good typography.

Bob Walz: I really appreciate your work. Your designs help me turn eyes into ears so people can hear my message, thank you!

Some Notes on Support and Updates

Providing customer support is very vital to me. If you need help, you can always contact me and I will get back to you in a short time.
Of course I can’t manage everything, so I don’t provide any support on theme customization in general. For those purposes, RapidWeaver has a
very strong community which can be accessed through their user forum. For general requests and help, there also is a special theme forum at my site.

You will also find a very good documentation with each theme. Be sure to check it out whenever you have any question.
The documentation can also be accessed online, which adds additional stuff like screencasts.

So, what about update fees?
Since I started developing themes for RapidWeaver more than 4 years ago, I’ve only charged once for a theme update (and 1 theme only).
So, in general updates are free. But I can’t tell you they will be free forever, as adding many feature requests and keeping them up to date
with further RW versions, may take a lot of time to invest.

More Information about the individual themes in this pack and Demo versions can be found on my main site:

Some Words about Rapid Ideas

Rapid Ideas started as a private project of Christoph Richardet. Back in 2005 there were only limited themes available for RapidWeaver. My main idea was to bring RW themes to a
new level by developing themes which broke the standard look of RW themes. I found that many RW users were very impressed by the possibilities of these themes.
The RW community grows with each day adding a big value to the software.
In june 2009 I decided to start my own company in the field of web design and graphics under the name Richardet Design. Our headquarter is located near Zurich, Switzerland

I want to thank the Real Mac Software Team for the marvelous tool and all my customers letting me do what I love to do!
