Retina ready, a bold layout, plenty of features, Kubb is a WordPress portfolio and vCard theme for photographers who want to create a long lasting website with incredible style.

Using Twitter’s powerful Bootstrap framework, the Kubb WordPress theme is fully compatible with that most popular CMS from version 4 and up. This responsive site solution is perfect for creative professionals who need a portfolio or gallery layout to showcase all of their work. This is especially true because Kubb is completely retina ready and offers high definition display capability. Both one page and multipage sites are easy to design with all the customization options.

Kubb’s developer has this to say as a sort of introduction to Kubb.

Kubb is a flat and responsive WordPress Theme with a clean and professional design which will be a great solution for your business, portfolio, blog or any other purpose website. Loom was built with awesome Twitter Bootstrap v3 and it loads of page builder elements pages with unlimited color options. Since it is responsive, the layout will adapt to different screen sizes which will make your website be compatible with any device such as smart phones, tablets or desktop computers.

Kubb is built for photographers with super simple gallery creation techniques, with 2 control creation lines:

1. Batch upload all your images straight to a post, and use one of our beautiful gallery types to display them. After you get full drag and drop control of image order and captioning. Perfect for those with a very large portfolio and multiple projects.

2. Make a post for each image, describe it in detail, perfect for those with a smaller portfolio.

Kubb delivers professional style without needing to hire a professional to set it up for you. It comes complete with various home page options, portfolio layouts, parallax scrolling and hundreds of Google fonts. The premium plug-in Revolution Slider helps you design areas of animated graphic interest to catch the eye of site visitors. If you sell digital or tangible goods or services, you will appreciate the Pricing Table and FancyBox extras. Add in both Gravity Forms and Contact Form 7 and customer service will be a breeze. The Kubb WordPress theme was designed with search engine optimization in mind and uses up to date and completely correct code for quick load times and no glitches.

TommusRhodus made Kubb as a sort of vCard theme for photographers, which is why it’s got such a strong visual style.  Whether you want to use it in that way, well that’s up to you.  WPML support, a visual page builder, custom logo upload, drag and drop page order system, one click installation with demo data.  Great support.  Great documentation.  This is a great theme for anyone who wants something that’s a blend of familiar with a new, unique twist on it.

Funny, you don’t look like Walter White.

Skills and Experience? Blanco has both!

Here’s a look at the skills and experience chart-a-gram.  What would you call that?  An infographic, I suppose, but it’s sort of not at the same time?

Blanco WordPress blog and portfolio and resumé theme.

And the portfolio is full featured as well, looks great on all devices, all of that.  Pretty standard masonry grid look, but well executed.  A lot has to do with the images you choose for these demo sites.  Pick the wrong images, the site looks like crap.

Here’s the way the blog looks.  Prominent date, likes and comments images, though to be honest, at first glance, it’s somewhat confusing which set of icons is for which post.  I mean, you figure it out quick, but the very first glance could cause some confusion.

creative theme called Blanco, for WordPress

The theme’s developer, CreaBox Themes, has this to say about Blanco:

Blanco is a creative resume and portfolio template. It is based on Twitter Bootstrap and made to show your resume (education, work experience, skills, etc.), portfolio and blog in a wonderful way with an unique and beautiful piece of design. It use the amazing plugin Visual Composer to create the pages and the portfolio items. Enjoy this theme!

Okay, pretty standard stuff, it’s Bootstrap, which I like, it also leans heavily on Visual Composer, which I really, really don’t like.  Honestly, I don’t like page builder themes.  I think they’re a cheat, they’re lazy.  Sure, the flexibility is great but the design is flimsy, it’s built on a house of cards.  I.  Just.  Don’t.  Like.  Them.

But what do I know, everybody else goes nuts for the things.

Let’s take more of a look at CreaBox.  They have a collection of a handful of themes, none of which I’ve previously reviewed.  But they do get decent ratings for what they have done.  Mostly landing pages, app splash pages and vCard/resumé/portfolio themes like Blanco.

So, let’s peek at those features before we head for the hills.

  • Smooth, Clean, Responsive Design with Bootstrap 3
  • Creative, Minimalist, Clean, Simple, Modern and Unique Theme.
  • Visual Composer Included
  • Full-screen Image Slider Background
  • Full-screen Video Background
  • Multilingual ready with WPML
  • WordPress Theme Options, Powered by the Redux Framework
  • One Click Installation
  • 6 post formats: audio, video, quote, image, gallery and link
  • Amazing animations with animate.css
  • Two color schemes, light and dark versions
  • Contact Form 7 fully supported
  • Great support and strong, in-depth documentation

Okay, that’s it, there’s no more to tell about Blanco.  It’s simple, it’s clean, it’s minimalist.  If you want a vCard theme with a bit more style than some on our collection, this one might be the theme for you.
