Static template files

When Zac is talking about the static template files that our designer gave to us to use with WordPress, he's talking about a prospective client right?

I know you can download the project files to follow along, but I was trying to follow along while building my own WordPress website using someone else's WP Theme. I'm getting a little confused about what I actually need to copy and paste and such...

My interpretation of this is that he's referring to static HTML files since WordPress is essentially dynamic Web design. These files may not come from a client. They may have come from a Web designer on your team, where your role as a developer is to convert the design into a dynamic website.

That makes sense. thanks Jeremy Castanza
