In this post you will find more information about customizing Twenty Twelve theme. There are many great tutorials online and I decided to list in this post the ones I like. Some tutorials might be out of date, if that is the case I will provide more information if needed later on. The reason why some tutorials might be out of date is because of the changes made to Twenty Twelve theme structure over the years since it was released in 2012.
The purpose of these tutorials is to help you design a modern site using the customizer, functions.php, css and other files. This gives you full control of your themes layout. The base structure will always be managed by WordPress community.
Note: Make sure you always have a back up before you do any work.
