In this post we release a yet another freebie: BlueMasters, a free PSD template, designed by Wendell Fernandes1 and released for Smashing Magazine and its readers. As usual, the theme is free to use in private and commerical projects.

BlueMasters is a dark, sexy, custom theme that has a solid, professional look and a very simple structure. You can access all files and layers used in a well organized structure and naming convention, making it easier for slicing the template or modifying it. BlueMasters can be customized to fit your business brand as well as your clients’ websites.

As always, here are some insights from the designers:

BlueMasters was created to help designers get started with a nice, solid and clean design. Looking at the many templates out there, we thought that it would be a great idea to incorporate some of the common elements used in other templates, and include them all in one single template, giving you a complete package of goodies. We hope this template can be of a great service to you, your business or your clients!

Thank you, Wendell. We appreciate your work and your good intentions.

    Yeah! I’d say it’s very very good … no Web 2.0 element whatsoever used; not seeing such stuff these days, and I’m glad somebody makes a point that design is not only about screaming badges, reflections and rounded corners

    thanks for sharing !

    It would appear that templates now have templates. I’ve seen that exact design a countless number of times over the past year or so. You can go just about anywhere and get that layout in PSD, HTML/CSS, WordPress, Drupal, etc. They’re just different colors.

    I guess I’m missing something – but how would you use a PNG or PSD file to create a website? Shouldn’t it be HTML files?

    Hi

    Great article and thanks for the hard work on the template to Wendell and the Smashing Magazine team. Nice design and very helpful to the design community. I would rate the article as awesome and hope to read more of these!

    Just a side note, I noticed other designers are using a 96dpi instead of the standard 72dpi for web designs. I asked them and they reasoned out that today’s monitors being larger; are manufactured for 96dpi. I am not sure if this is confirmed or acceptable yet.

    There must be something with the file as I too have experienced issues.

    Mac based (os10.6.4 w/-Safari 5) – Tried three downloads, two successfully download. Both can’t unzip. Tried using Stuffit latest version as well as Archive Utility.

    Windows (xp w/- Chrome) – Tried two downloads, both successful. Neither will open, “Archive verification error”.

    But some people here are having success. What platforms or utilities are being used?

    I like the design. I was wondering could you tell me how the background was made (the little dots)? Thanks

    0

      The background was a gradient mix, then three layers on top of that, one of which being the dots.

      The dots can be made in a number of ways though. Love the template. Thanks Guys

    I find designs that follow this current trend of design really boring. It’s too bad soooo many people are designing theme like this, and so many people think this is good design.
