    This is such an elegant design. The typography and spacing is excellent and it's so well balanced. Reminds me of great print work. I'm sure Monsieur Renoir would approve ;-)

    Brilliant layout, well balanced and the colour scheme is great. One issue I'm having, the fancybox buttons (prev, next and close) dont show on IE. Not sure whether its a Z-INDEX issue. Works amazingly on ALL othr browsers... any ideas anyone

    Looks like an image path issue with the IE filters. You will need to modify the 'src=' locations in Fancybox's IE filters so that they are relative to HTML document being viewed and not Stylesheet. If you've kept the folder structure intact then prepending the urls with 'js/' should do the trick Thanks for comment :]

    Great theme and great portfolio. Absolutely love your attention to detail, commitment to effective minimalism, and typographic feel. In a world where flashy is overrated, I hope people appreciate your art.

    Hi adkorte, Unfortunately, I've decided not to pursue making the wp version. However, if enough people request it I may work something out. Best, Carlo

    My favorite part about this? You didn't use a slider, I hope it is a sign that sliders are phasing out of web design.

    Technically, I did...unless by slider you mean the actual 'sliding' of images and the powerpoint-like transitions. I'm happy with just fading :)

    multipleone: Thanks your interest in the WP Version, however it won't likely be ready until much later than that. I'll be sure to update you when the time comes.

    I think it's a very ambitious theme. That said, I'd have a few personal reservations; your logo is quite poor - The logo should be a focus point as it represents the title of the page. it's not even a graphic image, simply text dropped in. The same goes for the use of images to show off the "fancy header" - they are quite bland and don't bring the full potential of the code used. I feel with a more polished graphics set to showcase it, this would be outstanding. I don't mean to be overly critical, just a few thoughts. Best of luck with it all ther same!

    I appreciate the candour, sticker. (oh and don't worry, I don't mind critical feedback :) ) I suppose the demo could have better front page slides to attract buyers but it doesn't concern me too much. It makes me a lot happier seeing folks enjoy the template for the layout and typography. As for the logo, I don't think an image is really necessary if it's going to be replaced. Keeping it as text provides an alternative for those who don't have a logo and want something temporary. It also leaves the doors open for font replacement. Thanks for the comment!
