The Very Best Themes For Talent Portfolios. (Models, Actors, Musicians & Artists)


#1

I am a web designer who works exclusively with talent. I would like to start suggesting some themes to my clients and readers of my blog who are not necessarily looking to have a portfolio website created for them, but rather to create one themselves. This is where I would suggest ThemeForest themes (cha-ching).
I have looked through the themes here (keyword: portfolio) and I found a TON of great portfolio themes to choose from, but I deal with some pretty demanding (talented, artistic) types and they demand ONLY the best!
Would you all be so kind as to suggest to me the best themes that you think would work for my niche? New designs are good too because some of my clients “don’t want another site to look like theirs”. Any feedback is MUCH appreciated!

problem is we are not allowed to promote our or other items on the forum, or discuss about them.


#3

Well that’s a terrible rule. I wasn’t aware. How am I supposed to find what I am looking for? There is no way I am going to search through the thousands of themes. I don’t have the time. It would be in TF’s best interest to not have this rule. Sales are at stake.

Hi Jason, an alternative would be using the filters in your search; by rating, sales, price, etc…

It’s not ideal, but it will save you some time. Good luck and success with the site.

I understand but these are the rules:

sorry :slight_smile:

I think it is possible to link to our items in threads from the “item discussion” category, but I’m not 100% sure…

not best interest instead will ruin the forums

Alright, who was that stupid to flag the original post for nothing? Anyway, if you post in “Item Discussion” forum (or ask a mod to move this topic) we will be able to give you exact suggestions. Cheers!

yes, there was nothing offensive in there. sorry jasonstilwell, some people are overly active :slight_smile: I’m sure a moderator will restore the message.

From this reason i make http://www.theme-city.com/ (for themeforest, graphicriver) and http://www.aedaddy.com (videohive) where you can find only HQ templates from ENVATO marketplaces. I need more time but i hope till 2012 i will have great collection from our marketplaces.

This forum message has been flagged as inappropriate, and will have to be reviewed by one of our staff. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I think someone is overdoing his vigilante passions…

It’s stupid to think that recommending someone an item that has a request = self promotion!


#12

Can I post my request in item requests?
I just want some good themes and my suggestions would make you guys money in the process. Just ask photocrati.

Wow. Great list and totally unbiased. Just what I was looking for. I think I will do like a master list of say 15-20, then review a few individually and spread it all over my blog like I have been an expert on themeforest for years :wink: That should be some good spider food, relevant content and even if I don’t get a contract to build a site using the theme; I will still get a commission.
AWESOME Protfolio themes!

Took me all this time to find one that absolutely BLEW MY SOCK OFF, but this:

http://themeforest.net/item/kin-minimalist-photography-wordpress-template/full_screen_preview/123713

This is EXACTLY the type of theme I am talking about when I say artistic for models, photographers, actors and the like. The sites are not supposed to look like blogs at all, but rather to showcase the product, which in most cases, is my client.

lol you self-promoted your site that will come in handy because we aren’t allowed to self promote.

Did you try browsing some collections ? They are quite useful (for me) :slight_smile:
