Why is there no ultra-minimalist themes?

You can call your themes “ultra minimalist” all you want. Having large pictures, more colors than just black & white, and a ton of HTML5/Javascript built into your theme is NOT minimal.

If you dont want some aspects just remove them and keep the parts you want to use


I have some items which you may use for Portfolio or Photography and which are “minimalist” (I think they are but maybe not “ultra”).

Some HTML templates:

There are some more, you can check them if you like our style.

You can hire someone from Envato studio.

because they don’t get approved, lol
