Portfolio Blog WebsiteMetro by Themify

Inspired by Windows 8, Metro is a responsive, beautiful, minimal, and colorful theme that is perfect for blog and portfolio sites. Using the Tile custom post type, you can mimic the Metro design by showing various tiles: buttons, gallery sliders, images, maps, and text. Showcase your portfolio with either a single featured image or an image slider. Make your blog interesting by publishing different post formats such as: images, videos, quotes, galleries, links, etc. It comes with 9 different colors based on Windows 8’s Metro that you can apply to all or individually to all blog, Tile, and Portfolio posts.  You do not require any programming knowledge to create your own Portfolio Blog website.  Click here to see more features of Metro.
