There are so many great website templates and ready to use PSD website designs available for quickly setting up cool business websites. Many of them, however, have a pretty minimalistic and clean designs and some customization is required to end up with a unique website design.
Fusion theme from ElegantThemes is different and to me looks like an iPad/tablet first design. The full width slider at the top of the front pages have been sized to perfectly fit the view port of iPads and give the many iPad surfers a great and colorful entry experience. The designers have included a good deal of colors while maintaining the amount of professionalism needed for a serious business website.
Fusion offers a fully responsive layout, which is great news for visitors and clients who access your site using mobile devices. In addition, the theme includes seven page templates that you can use to quickly build a professional website with page layouts that support the content really well. Check the theme demo here and see the goodies for yourself.
Fusion have one of the most meaty shortcode packages I have seen in a theme. This extensive list of shortcodes will be useful as you start setting up your content pages.
The first thing you would notice in the homepage is the large full width slider. The default color uses a stunning violet with some pretty background designs. Below it is an area for content to describe your website, a nice scrollable testimonials area and recent posts pulled up from the blog. The footer area supports widgets and allows you to add almost any type of content without coding.
One drawback I have noticed compared to the many multi purpose themes currently released, is that the homepage has only one layout available. Still must WordPress users will find that the theme options offer the flexibility needed. In addition, ElegantThemes offer a page builder plugin that will give you full control of any page layout.
Fusion has several page templates to get you started. It includes a contact form, a full width template (for page layouts that doesn’t need a sidebar), an image gallery section, a sitemap, a portfolio page, advanced search and a pre built login page.
Looking further at the portfolio page, the theme has a nice thumbnail gallery for items. An excerpt is also included for each individual items.
The theme’s shortcode support is extensive. As previously mentioned, buttons are integrated and a clean looking content box for testimonials or any other short text is readily available.
Here’s another shortcode supported, a nice toggled content box and tabbed content for further management of text placed in your website.
Here you can see the theme’s epanel (the custom dashboard panel), an easy to manage interface to quickly customize your theme. It includes all the necessary features so you can do your adjustments. You can edit from here the navigation styles, layout and even the SEO for your website (no need to install any plugins for SEO, lessening the bulk on your hosting space).
Fusion is truly a fusion of creativity and professionalism in one great package. It is a well designed, elegant theme with a comprehensive approach to enhance user experience. You can check out a live demo of the theme here.
