What’s Customers Say

Not only is the theme slick, solid and perfect for use - but the support is fantastic. Quick responses to all questions which is invaluable. Keep up the great work guys.

Arnold is one of only two themes I’ve considered well-enough designed to purchase (with the usual tweaks for style and layout preferences). It's the best minimal portfolio theme out there, to my eyes. The support is second to none. I'm super grateful for the patient help I've received. Every support reply has been totally courteous and focused on solving issues and technical difficulties I've faced. Very highly recommended!

Amazing Theme. The minimalist design with all the different customization options. Just a dream for beginners or advanced designers. Love it! Good job guys!

I purchased this elegant theme because of its splendour design! I didn't regret it at all. The theme works perfect and the support is simply as good as it is possible to be: accurate, precise and complete. Design, documentation and code quality are flawless and faultless. This is the first theme I ever bought and I can definitely recommend it to everyone who wants to represent themselves in a better light. Thank you Arnold theme!

ARNOLD theme is made with the best design i have ever ever ever seen and practiced with wordpress-easy to integrate with incredible support and customize by its author, BWSM ! from france, thank you again!

Excellent design and helpfull support. Code is clean and easy to work with when using firebug. Was offered a very quick and working fix when asking for assistance. I am a fairly frequent user of themes and this one is probably the best experience ive had. Thank you - Henrik
