Free Resources & Discounts

Minutes to Midnight Studio (Detail)

The product, companies and the collaborators listed in this page have all had a critical role, both in the building of this website and running my own small business.

Because of this, I want to share both the free resources I’ve used, along with discounts for premium products.

A few of them have allowed me to use affiliate links, so whenever you buy or only sign up for free using them, you’re also helping Minutes to Midnight. Cheers!

WordPress Theme Customisation

WordPress allows advanced users to create a child theme, whose aim is to customise the main theme (parent) without altering its code. Therefore, whenever the parent theme gets an update, the customisations would stay unaltered.

If you need a similar solution or ad-hoc advanced personalisations for your website or theme, I strongly recommend the guys at UI Farm Ltd, a fantastic web agency who specialises in custom WordPress and responsive design.
