Mashup Template: 7 Free HTML/CSS Templates for Modern Websites

The small collection Mashup Template provides free templates as HTML/CSS, Sketch, and NPM. The design is very contemporary and definitely worth a look.

Mashup Template: Promo Freebie From The Team of

Mashup Template is a side project of the team of the website builder, which is moderately popular so far. As we've learned from InVision, the easiest way to boost attention significantly is to give out useful goodies. Templates have been THE goodie to hand out for decades.

Nowadays, the potential "customer" can afford to have a certain quality standard. So, if your goal is to distribute the design of the 90s as a free template, you'll only get very modest gratitude in return.

Mashup Template: HTML, CSS, Sketch, and NPM

However, the templates inside the Mashup Template set are some of the better representatives of its kind. The project page even comes with a good preview function. This way, you can see exactly what you get, and how it will look on desktop, tablet, and smartphone, before even downloading it.

Some come with a classic multi-page layout, others are designed as one-pagers. All of them were built on a foundation of layout blocks. This makes it very easy for you to remix the suggested layout. All templates are free to use, as long as you leave the backlink to the project page in the footer. Aside from the HTML/CSS variants, there's a Sketch file, and a version for the JavaScript Package Manager NPM available for each template. The web version is based on Bootstrap 3, Webpack, and SCSS. All the example images originate from Unsplash, making them free to use as well. So, very lazy people can just change the texts and be done with it.

Mashup Template: License and Perspective

The project is distributed under the liberal MIT license, thus not limiting the usage. You could also build a client website based on the Mashup Templates if that meets your self-expectation. Contribution is asked and hoped for. Mashup Template's growth fantasy largely depends on that. The Orson.ios want to expand the portfolio on a regular basis, too. Photo by Kelly Sikkema on Unsplash
