I'm new to SharePoint and I have to create custom theme that is required by the client.
Can anyone point me the right direction?
I'm using SharePoint 2016.

Thank you in advance!

  • I hope you need to create a Custom master page right ?

I would suggest you start with creating your theme/html template in html and then converting it to a Master Page in SharePoint.

You can get started here : https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj822370.aspx

A blog post on the same topic : http://blog.navantis.com/creating-a-new-master-page-in-sharepoint-2013/

The links are for SharePoint 2013 but should work for SharePoint 2016 too.


I think what you are looking for is SharePoint Themes.

Themes provide a quick and easy way to apply lightweight branding to a SharePoint site. A theme lets a site owner, or a user who has designer rights, customize a site by changing the site layout, color palette, font scheme, and background image.
