WordPress Theme of the week: Vintage
Vintage is a one page premium WordPress Theme with a retro design and is suited for everyone that wishes to have a website that really stands out. One page websites are mainly useful for simple personal websites with a simple news section, portfolio and about me page.
I absolutely love the header part. It really emphasizes the overall design and every visitor’s eyes will be focused on it. It is important that it stays at the top of the browser since it is a one page website, which means the height of the website can be thousands of pixels. Blending of different retro colors when you scroll down is also just perfect and very pleasing to the eyes.
Slider is custom designed and fits perfectly with the overall design of the Theme. Shadows on all corners really add that final touch to it and add to the realism of the retro (old) style.
Below the slider is the place for quotes and featured products or services. This has become a standard and most premium WordPress Themes use it nowadays. However, it gets the job done and is designed very well.
The portfolio section is the one that I like the most. A dirty orange background pattern with dark text and white image frames is just perfect. Portfolio items have a really simple design with a white frame and a title but that is all you need.
Blog section is the only part that would need some retouching in my opinion. Design of search field is just a bit to plain and the content of some of the widgets (Twitter and Recent Posts) could have slightly better visibility.
