I've been meaning to write up a blog post about how to go from a HTML template (purchased from a place like https://themeforest.net) to a Backdrop theme. As a developer with only a smidge of design skill, I have found this to be a workable alternative to hiring a designer for custom work.
Below you'll find a very a rough outline of the steps I follow:

I tasked myself with rebuilding my dad's old Durpal 6 site, www.stellarsoftware.com, to Backdrop CMS in one weekend.
