Particle – A WordPress Theme for Premium Members

Read the article

Particle is the latest of a series of WordPress themes available only to Access All Areas members. The design features a clean grey background, with splashes of vibrant colour in the header and throughout the page as links and buttons. Overall the design has plenty of clean lines, and uses subtle shadows and inset text effects to add that touch of style.

Particle gets its name from the array of circular objects floating around the header of the design. Depth of field effects give various levels of focus, adding a touch of depth to the design. The whole colour scheme of the site is taken from the bright and vibrant mix of pink, yellow and blue in the header, with these swatches reappearing as link states and page headings. Some CSS3 tweaks here and there add extra levels of detail for modern browsers, such as inset text effects and soft shadows.

The vibrant colours of the header illustration make Particle well suited to the creative industries, but is generic enough to be used as a base for blogs of any topic.
