Have been looking forever for a minimalist theme that truly is... minimalist. I'm a designer/artist/photographer with some coding experience. I found Svea to be a breeze to setup and eventually customize a little for my needs. The theme strikes just the right notes, a perfect blend of form and function. Svea complements my work perfectly without overwhelming it. Love it!
So far I'm delighted with Northeme's Centreal Plus theme. I used it to build my first ever website and found it very straight forward and easy to use. Had virtually no trouble and the questions I did have were answered within a day.
I have used many different themes over the years, both simple and more complex in corporate business contexts. This time I was looking for a portfolio-oriented theme that focuses on creative people and businesses. I searched for a long time and evaluated several. When I stumbled on Northeme I became very attracted. After a short introductory chat dialog I bought the entire package (all themes included). I have to say that I have never seen themes with such simple and nice setting options. There is support for everything you are looking for, and it covering your needs all the time. It's development team really has been accurate with both layout, function, order and structure. This exceeded my expectations! Thanks to Mert & Co, with the hope of continued business success. Today, there were new updates to the theme Centreal (incl. bundled Slider Revolution and WP Bakery), which I am pleased to download now.
