Skyfashion rocks my boat (or should that be floats?). Why? It’s got that clean, minimalistic feel to it that makes me go ‘yes, this is it – this is really it‘. And that’s a good thing, just so we’re clear.
The home page rocks (there’s that word again) a slider like there’s no tomorrow. Try re-sizing your browser window on the home page and you’ll notice the slider changing size accordingly. This is what responsive design is all about.
Keep scrolling and you’ll run right into a latest posts widget, handy if you plan on writing a blog.
The about us section is done using columns.
Scroll even further and you’ll spot a Twitter feed widget as well as a Flickr widget. Both totally optional, of course, but it’s good to know they’re there.
As a theme for creatives, you’d expect a decent set of portfolio options, and that’s exactly what Skyfashion delivers. You can choose between 2, 3 or 4 columns, and also whether you want to use the hover effect I mentioned earlier.
The theme doesn’t go overboard with shortcodes, and instead focuses on the essentials. So you’ve got shortcodes for drop caps, dividing lines, tabs, accordion menus, columns, buttons (!), pricing boxes, and more.
Why don’t I show you a picture?
For each page you can choose the colour (white or black), whether you want the background to be white, grey, or an image, the colour of links and lines (using a colour wheel) and the header and content fonts. You can do all of this without going anywhere near your stylesheet. Check out the menu below.
I don’t know about you, but I’m impressed with the simplicity of making changes. Give it a try in the live demo and see what you make of it.
