Originally, TemplateMonster is the oldest developer that provides people and companies with different website templates for any business type all around the world. Officially, TemplateMonster appeared almost 15 years ago, in 2002. I used to work in a small web design studio, which was a new but successful business for our town. It took place many years ago and we did website designs, not templates. Clearly, those days we knew nothing about the last ones.

Maybe this is the most popular question, but how did you get this unique idea about the creation of website templates?

That’s a funny story! There were only 5 of us working at that studio, when the amount of orders was pretty big. One day I saw that one of my co-workers did the orders unbelievably quickly. I asked him about the job and that guy told me a secret of his productivity. It was about the library of ready-made elements that he made in Photoshop and used for the fast creation of website layouts. As it was already said we have never heard about the definition or using of website templates, but decided to try working with them. In the beginning, we tried to paint some ready-to-use website templates and sell them as a Photoshop files via internet. As I can remember, there were only 3 categories of such themes: gold, silver and bronze.
