The vertex wordpress theme is gorgeous. Seriously, unbelievably stunning. Opening the page you see headings are there conveniently located at the top of the page. The cover image of the site is there in plain sight. Then with perfect timing, the title of your website forms in the center of the cover image. It is as inviting as it is grounded. There are too many website themes that go out of their way to be noticed in a way that feels desperate. The vertex theme is minimal and grounded. It leaves with you the feeling of elegance and professionalism. And this feeling runs consistently through the rest of the template.
Scrolling down on the page, images to links appear like piano keystrokes slowly emerging to the surface of the page. This is a level of professionalism and minimalism any website can take advantage of. The grid pattern allows for visitors to access pages of the website and to quickly navigate from page to page. Scrolling down further the content emerges from the bottom of the page. By doing this, it forces the viewer’s eyes to the content immediately. It displays two clear arrows to the right and the left, to quickly scroll through summary content. This content is then linked to the correct page granting another engaging dynamic to connect users to content throughout the website. The vertex theme continues with the piano key concept as the user scrolls further down. This section appears as a solid title and a row of image links. These images raise from the rest as you scroll over them and fall back once you cursor over to the next. The bottom of the page returns to the cover image completing a symmetrical design to the website.
The pages after the landing page follow a similar pattern. The page emerges as the cover image is naked, but only for a second before the title of the page appears in the center. This is elegant in a minimal aesthetic to notify the user and capture their attention. The second page is a blog template page and is exactly what you want from a blog layout. The white background makes the post links pop. It has a steady image and text in order for the posts to be clearly visible to the user. The right 4th of the screen is dedicated to navigation in order for the user to easily see what is available to view and a quick connection point to the post. The right hand navigation allows for recent blog posts, comments and updates. It is everything a blogger needs and laid out in a clean fashion.
I could go on about how clean and elegant the vertex website template is. The way it is grounded in neutral color tones, but can evoke attention is nothing short of impressive. There are a lot of website themes and this is one to seriously consider for its simplicity and beauty. It is one of the few with easy navigation for usability while still capturing the attention of the visitor, which is the benchmark for any website theme. I could go on and on about how good it is, but you should check it out for yourself.
