Brochure; which is the name of the new theme – was designed with “being different” in mind. You have many areas that you can place widgets in, so that you can easily customize your site to make it stand out from all the other news sites.
Jayvie created three different feels to this new theme. This is how he described them on the StartBox website blog:
Visually, I made three different “looks”, all very different from each other in character. “Elegant” has a classic look that invokes the look and feel of old paper; “Modern,” whose name speaks for itself, and “Columbia,” a feminine—and rather daring—look dedicated to the classic personification of the United States.
It was also designed to work in tangent with all different types of layouts and adapts to the lot of them perfectly. Magazine themes almost always have slideshows. StartBox has a built in slideshow feature, which is extremely customizable – allowing you to make the slideshow as big or small as you want for your site. (How cool is that?!)
Brochure is also responsive – allowing users to see your site in full action on tablets and smartphones! There’s a demo to see how awesomely responsive it is – Check it out!
