Meet Umo, a one-page portfolio theme for Tumblr aimed at designers, photographers, illustrators, and all kinds of visual artists.
This is a multi-section theme: besides the ubiquitous Portfolio grid, you get an About, Services, Team, Testimonials and Contact section.
The Portfolio grid is quite flexible: you can define the number of columns for different screen resolutions and adjust the thumbnails’ shape and proportions.
The Portfolio grid main attraction is the bespoke Ajax expander, which allows you to display each project details dynamically in an stylish way.
The site footer houses your social links, Twitter and photostream feeds (Dribbble, Flickr, and Instagram).
Please note that Umo only supports Photo, Audio and Video posts. Quote posts are used in addition to populate the Testimonials section. Although regular Text posts aren’t supported, you can create and display custom pages (http://goo.gl/x2Sygw).
Umo includes the following sections, which can be switched on and off:
Homepage: greet your visitors with a custom logo—or avatar—and message. Full page background image cycler with up to five images.
About: introduce yourself or your company and let visitors know what you do best. “Skills” widget can be turned on and off.
Services: be boisterous about your skill-set and expertize! Display up to six services boxes with their own image or icon, title, description and external link. An optional “swiper” lets you group your services into an horizontally scrollable widget.
Portfolio: filterable portfolio grid chock-full of options! Filter your projects using smooth transitions and show their details in-page with the Ajax-powered project expander. Choose between landscape, portrait and square thumbnails, with rounded, circle or square shapes, flat or with shadows.
Team: Display up to six team members, with custom avatars, name, job position, short bio, and the social links of your choice. An optional “swiper” lets you group your team members into an horizontally scrollable widget.
Testimonials: populate your testimonials section by simply creating “Quote” posts on your dashboard. Testimonials will be swipeable both on desktop and mobile thanks to the awesome Swiper jQuery plugin.
Clients: a simple widget that lets you display up to six client logos.
Contact: show your contact information and let people message you effortlessly via Tumblr’s own “Ask me anything” box.
Footer: display icons for all of your social profiles, an integrated Twitter feed, and Dribbble, Instagram and Flickr photostreams.
Umo comes with tons of options to let you customize colors, background images and typography.
Umo supports notes and Disqus comments on project details, either when viewed on the Ajax expander or a separate permalink page.
Umo supports most modern browsers, including Internet Explorer 9.
