900dpi: Hey Designer, Add a CMS to Any Website Easily!

Designers like lots of things, but first and foremost they like their freedom to design whatever they want in whichever way they see fit. That’s one of the reasons why homepage builders are not an option in most cases. They all limit in one way or another, though their compromises tend to get better and better.

But what about others, extremely remote, pristine, almost unspoiled parts of the world, such as New Zealand. Is it an active and equal participant of the mainstreams? As it turns out, yes it is.
