Examples of Websites Created With the Royal Theme

My experience with the latest theme from 8theme, Royal, was more than satisfactory. I was quite impressed about this premium, multi-purpose theme, and wish to pass it on to the rest of you. Every designer would enjoy creating WordPress websites through with the help of this theme.

A Majestic Difference

Royal is a responsive, rock-solid theme based on Twitter Bootstrap. An advanced theme panel is ready to appease even the fussiest creative who happens to chance upon it, and all users are entitled to free updates for the entire duration of their lifetime.

Royal has a stellar documentation, plus video tutorials, in order to help you get a full understanding of everything that Royal can do. My favorite part was finding out that a cluster of premium add-ons – which, taken together, add up to $119 – are wrapped up with this theme at no extra cost.

What kind of website are you up to, next? Royal Theme can handle anything you throw at it! For E-commerce sites, you can choose from a selection of shop page layouts, and display the desired number of products in a row. Furthermore, you are able to customize the product page layout, as well as the tab on it. The images of your products can also be customized to various dimensions, zoom in, and react in a certain way upon hovering: be masked with information, swap, or the images slider kicks in.

This is but a glimpse of Royal Theme’s true potential. I wouldn’t expect you to take my words of praise at face value, so feel free to check out Royal Demos, as shown below. You’ll find it as good as I did.

Presentation is a big part of the artistic process and this is especially true of freelance work. Mockups have become much more common to showcase what a project will look like once it’s running on a device. These mockups are just photos with a layer mask to superimpose a completed interface onto a smartphone or computer screen.

A few years ago this would have required purchasing stock photography or taking your own photos. Thankfully some wonderful designers have released their own device mockups free of charge. Each set in this gallery is dedicated to a certain device like smartphones, tablets, laptops, or even desktop monitors. Check out these free device mockups to see if they could be of use in future project work.
