Revenue Grows 50% Since concrete5 Redesgined by

When concrete5 launched as open source in 2008, the core team actually took an old abandoned design and quickly repurposed it for the project site at Their focus was very much on the CMS, and not on the presentation of the community behind it. Since then concrete5 has gained a lot of attention, most recently as a "system to watch" from the 2010 Open Source CMS Market Share Report. The time had come for the cobbler to make his own shoes.

With no design resources on staff, concrete5 tapped to help with creatives for the process. Says Timothy Nix, Creative Director at Clevyr “You know that feeling you get when you unwrap that one gift that you have been wishing for? That is the feeling I got the first time I installed and worked with concrete5. I am proud with what we have put together and can't wait to see the future of this amazing platform and the community around it.” Franz Maruna, CEO at Concrete CMS adds “The guys at Clevyr were a perfect fit. They brought some really creative ideas to the table in a way that actually worked. If you’re looking for a great design resource, you’d be a fool not to give these guys a call.”

There are far too many new features to list, but obvious improvements to the user interface in the marketplace alone have increased sales over 50% since the launch in the end of January. Continues Franz, “I feel like the hot girl in sweatpants on What Not To Wear. We just had our ‘reveal’ and now hubby is thinking he needs to hit the track before we hit the door... Just kidding. ;)”
