Inside the Minds of 7 Great ThemeForest Designers: kuimu

I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing a few very successful authors here on ThemeForest. Throughout a series of emails, I asked a selected set of authors a series of 6 questions, the same set to each author. The result was one of the most inspiring and helpful series of interviews I have read to date. One of the most interesting things to note, is the common answers and items that all the authors focus on, such as the user experience. This gives us great insight as to how the pros on ThemeForest develop and deliver a final product.
