Portfolio Layouts

Showcasing your work has never been easier. You can show wide width images and videos within a slider, stacked or even via a lightbox. On top of that, you control whether the content goes above or below your work. With this theme it really is all about the work.

Homepage Layouts

With 3 main homepage layouts for your portfolio, you can show a wall of work, text and a small image or wide width images.

All post formats supported

Aside, audio, video, gallery, image, status, chat, link, quote, standard – we support them all in this theme.

Unlimited Color Options

You can control colours for the entire theme using our easy to use options panel.

More fonts than you can shake a stick at

Google fonts, Typekit fonts, Adobe Edge fonts, standard fonts – these are all built in and easy to setup, just follow the inline help.
