Alice is a beautiful minimal blogging design from our friends at Made By Raygun. It’s suitable for a personal blog or simple portfolio website.
It has a simple design where the left column remains stationery at all times. Some of you will love this simple structure, some may not. You have the option of changing between serif and sans-serif versions of the theme with one click,. You can also easily modify the header background colour, remove the header background or upload your own custom image.
The theme could be used as a personal portfolio. It works perfectly with the Made By Raygun plugin Portfolio Slideshow Pro (which is only $10 if you purchase the Alice design).
There is also a page template that uses the built in WordPress gallery feature. The thumbnails of which are linked to a Fancybox Gallery.
The blog template is perfect for a personal blog or even an authors website. The font reminds me a little of reading my kindle :)
Google Analytics is supported with the theme and there is a CSS editor too if you want to make basic changes to the theme. The theme has also been optimised for use on mobile devices.
A single license for Alice costs $25 whilst a developer license retails for $75. I’ve no doubt that many will be put off by these prices. In my opinion the single license price is justified as it’s well documented, well supported and there are not many other basic designs like this that have good typography.
The theme isn’t for everyone though. It’s clearly targeted to those who are looking for a simple, minimal design. If you are looking for something simple, I recommend checking it out.
MadeByRaygun have kindly donated one copy of the design to WPMods readers. For more details on how you win this theme, please check out the competition thread in the forums :)
