zengine starter blueprint grid theme

hi all
I have made a starter theme for people wanting to use Google's blueprint css layout.

I made it with zengine for 5.7.

download it at:


it may need the ie.css added with the if ie hack but the layout looks good as it is in ie6.

all the best and thanks for you help (by helping drupal). And podcasts (jeff)!

I have made a starter theme for people wanting to use Google's blueprint css layout.

I'm pretty sure Blueprint is just hosted by Google Code, not actually made by Google themselves. :)

I've never used a grid-based CSS framework, myself, as it never really seemed necessary. But for anyone interested in them, some others you might look into are Boilerplate, which seems to be sort of a stripped-down Blueprint, Yahoo Grids CSS, which I'm pretty sure is made by Yahoo, and LogicCSS.

any recent updates?

oo cool! Blueprint looks so easy to use. are you working on updating this for the newest version of Zen?


URLgreyhot, who is also a Drupal developer, created Photoshop templates for site design based on the Blueprint CSS (he has illustrator templates available too)

cool thanks heather
