Clean Space is a multi-purpose WordPress theme that can be used for just about anything. It was just released (this morning) on ThemeForest and already racked up 10 sales. The theme is by mad_dog, a ThemeForest “elite author”. This theme could certainly fall under the category of elite. They’ve harnessed the full capabilities of HTML5 and CSS3 to create an absolutely stunning WordPress theme. We’re chomping at the bit to purchase this theme and use it for a client who wants a “Ferrari of a website”. CleanSpace offers plenty of built-in options that are sure to please the designer as well as the client.
Features of CleanSpace
- Slider with video support – I’m listing this first because there are so many themes that leave this feature out. Using a marketing video is the most effective way to convey your brand’s message. Not only do visitors stay on the page longer but search engines also love it.
- Custom slide animations – on top of video support, the sliders also enable you to create custom animations using CSS3. Remember the days when you had to use flash to achieve such effects? Steve Jobs did a great job killing flash. This slideshow will show up on most (if not all) devices – iPad, iPhone, Android etc.
- Beautiful typography – the shortcodes included enable the user to layout the page as they fit, especially important if you plan on blogging frequently.
- Shortcodes – a must for any premium WordPress theme. Among the shortcodes included: accordion effects (good for FAQs and hiding content that isn’t necessary displaying right when a user gets on the page), feedback form, icon boxes, testimonials, video, and much more.
- Layer slider – this is where the magic of CSS3 comes in. You’re able to assign certain objects (text, images, even shortcodes) to different layers and have them appear in a timed sequence, similar to how you would make a compositions in Adobe After Effects.
Who we Recommend Clean Space to
This theme could be used for anything. We’re interested to see how this would integrate a popular shopping cart plugin like JigoShop or WooCommerce. The sheer amount of customization options make this theme well worth its price tag. This screenshot is how Clean Space would look if you were viewing it on an iPad.
