Your talent deserves a professional presentation, and the Portfolio Theme is perfect for displaying the visual talents of any creative professional! The clean and minimal design focuses on the imagery. So, visitors will appreciate your artwork to the fullest extent — without distraction.
Creating A Portfolio Is Simple
Creating a portfolio website is simple! Gallery pages are created using categories. Simply add a post within the WordPress dashboard, and assign it a category — such as illustration, painting, or design. Once you’ve added your artwork as individual posts, you can then display the entire category as its own portfolio. Additionally, unlimited slideshows of your art can be created using page templates.
The theme utilizes the intuitive WordPress customizer for changing the options and appearance. As a result, the website setup process is completed within minutes!
A Minimal and Unique Design
While the Portfolio Theme features a design that’s minimal in style, the unique layout makes it stand out among other portfolio websites.
Vertically Anchored Navigation
The vertical website navigation always remains visible — anchored in the same position. Sub-pages within the menu are hidden from display until their parent page is clicked. Also, the navigation style adapts as the screen size changes. So, visitors can reliable navigate your portfolio with ease using any device.
Vertically Centered Slideshows
Slideshows are centered horizontally and vertically within the browser window. It’s a style that used to be common among Flash portfolio websites. However, as websites transitioned towards better HTML and CSS structures, achieving vertically centered content was a challenge until recently. Now, with widely adopted browser support for CSS flexbox styles, this look can achieved once again.
Category pages display a responsive 3-column gallery layout — displaying only the featured image, and a post title when the image is hovered. So, you can create full gallery pages that focus entirely on the imagery. Additionally, the columns decrease with the browser window size for a fully responsive layout.
Clear And Legible Typography
In the case of a portfolio website, the typography should not be a distraction from the imagery. So, the typography throughout the theme is simple and highly legible across all devices. As a result, visitors can focus on the artwork as the priority, and the content secondarily.
Promote Your Artwork
Sharing your artwork is simple. The social media menu displays within the main navigation menu. So, you can direct visitors to your additional portfolios across other creative social networks such as Behance, Dribbble or Deviant Art. In addition, the theme is compatible with the WordPress Jetpack plugin. The Jetpack sharing module is perfect for promoting your work.
Potential clients and customers will be viewing your portfolio website on their phones. As a result, your portfolio should make a great impression across any device or screen size. The responsive framework for the Portfolio Theme ensures that visitors will view and browse your work with ease.
