Blanco, Clean and Minimalist Resumé Theme for WordPress
Funny, you don’t look like Walter White.
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?
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.
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.
