Using a template for your website if you are a web design or a web developer is right?

    Hmm, you will need to clean it.. but you'll probably gain time for the backend.

    Personnaly i created a list of my own template, and use it when i create a web application

    If it's a well designed and implemented template that does what you need, then yeah, it's absolutely fine.

    I'm all for reinventing the wheel if you can improve on it, but if you can't or don't need/want to, then just don't reinvent it.

    @Jakuho I mean a template from HTML5UP or other sites like that.

    If it’s a nice template you can actually use, go for it, I’ve done it in the pass.

    Some templates may offer a couple of elements you might want as well and you could integrate them into another design.

    @MushiKun never heard of them before, but they all look like they use the same basic design just with a few elements different and colours.

    @MushiKun the html5up templates look at least quite beautiful 😲

    @heyheni yep they are beautiful, but I want to know if for a web designer is fair to use them. It's for a bet with a coworker

    it depends...
    on the customers brand philosophy and his budget.

    If a customer has a strong design branding and he makes money with his website he should have a induvidual to his needs tailored website.

    If it's a small company which has no shape or design language. And no budget then absolutely take a template that fits his needs.
