I’ve been SO happy with the theme and I am eternally grateful for the beautiful, user friendly, and simple design you created.
I haven’t bought this yet, but I have to say I keep coming back to the demo just to play with the tiles. Feel like such a kid! Can’t wait to get this when I figure out what i’m doing!
Thank you for this theme, it was exactly what I needed. By far your documentation is one of the easiest, most intuitive ones I’ve come across for such a complex theme. Keep up the great work!
Wow dude. I’ve been producing websites since 1997. A few times a year I fall in love with a theme. Today was one of those moments. I love this theme. It’s so good I’m considering replacing my current theme for my new company with it.
Wow THIS is Frickin COOL!! Unique, Creative, Modern and just Awesome!
Modern Design & TechnologiesThis theme has a modern design, involving 3D transitions and parallax effects and everything is backed up by a solid framework, which makes all the fancy stuff play smooth in any browser. The theme uses modern technologies such as CSS transitions, HTML5 tags and the History API along with well executed AJAX in order to provide an amazing experience for your users.
100% ResponsiveIt is totally responsive, meaning that it will look good on all kinds of mobile devices. The sliders have touch events enabled & the entire content is scaling properly down to the smallest size.
Retina ReadyAll the images in this theme will look sharp on devices with a high DPI. If you provide large sizes, when a user opens the site in a retina device a cookie will be stored on his device and after the first refresh all images will look really good!
Highly CustomizableThe entire look of the theme can be easily changed through the options provided with the Theme Customizer which allows you to edit the theme and preview your changes in real time. You can change colors, fonts & a lot of options in the layout.
Advanced PortfoliosThere are two portfolio types: portfolio & gallery. The portfolio type has three different layouts for projects, and you can use them all on your website.
- Modal window – a project which will appear in a window floating over the thumbnails (or over the dummy background set in earlier). This project type is the most balanced one – it allows videos and pictures altogether and it is useful when you want to display regular projects or images with moderate content. Each modal project can have it’s own size so you should not worry about having portfolios with multiple dimensions, as you’ll be able to configure them and all will look perfect on any screen size.
- Full (Vertical) – this project is good for tall content (large images or posters or stuff that looks good one above the other). If you have a really tall image you should use this project type for it. You also have some space for text available.
- Full (Horizontal) – this type is good for projects with a lot of content, because it offers a full page with content above the big slider. It also features a cool parallax effect and the ability to play transparent images or cool backgrounds, and so on..
Unique SlidersThe sliders of this theme are based on the great Swiper Slider plugin, enhanced with different slider options, such as full width or centered slides on different backgrounds, with smooth parallax effects
Masonry BlogThe blog is also unique in this theme, presented in the way of a isotope masonry grid, with different post formats all with their own galleries, sliders, links or quotes. When you open a single post, you’ll see the post content at the top, with a fancy parallax effect when you scroll down.
Interactive MapYou can have as many map pages as you want and in each one you can have a certain location, pin image and contact info.
Shortcodes GeneratorThe theme comes with an awesome shortcode generator which allows you to build up pages as you see here. There are enough elements to get you started in order to create rich pages with awesome content!
SEO friendlyAll headings tags are wisely used in the theme, AJAX calls are recorded and every single portfolio page works out of the box, so search engines will know how to crawl and index your website.
Translation Ready (Multilingual).po and .mo files are available, making the theme easy to translate into your own language.
11 Layered PSD FilesA lot of PSD files are available in the download. With them, you can easily change layouts and stuff for presenting the perfect website for your clients!
Great Documentations & SupportThere is a comprehensive manual available and some quality screencasts which can help you get started with the theme and there is always the support forum backed by professionals caring for your business!
XML Import File AvailableThe XML import file is available and can be used to download the demo content from the online preview(without the copyrighted images).
