Theme has been great in every respect, customer service has been responsive, and we are very happy with the decision to go with this blog. The only issue I had was that I had there didn’t appear to be a way to customize the color of the mobile header. Also, we’ve had some issues where we wanted to invert the colors of particular widgets (light text, dark background) and it would be great if there was just a checkbox for this option as well. Would add lots of options for personalizing the experience over generic installation.

How does it work? A question I never had to ask myself since I started using Julia. It was clear right from the start. And I don’t have to worry about something breaking with every WordPress update. If you want the best customer support and everything up and running by the blink of an eye, then go with Pixelgrade. Never had a struggle, the templates run like magic!

Oana Filip's response (Pixelgrade team)

I am amazed by the natural yet beautiful way you approach your food blog. Everything looks stunning, Bruno! Thank you! 😎

While scrolling for a new layout for our blog, Julie caught our eye straight away. The menu, the homepage, all the options, were straight up our alley. The theme allows us to highlight our favorite posts, it’s so easy to work with and it looks just darn pretty!

Oana Filip's response (Pixelgrade team)

Woohoo! Happy to hear that, Carina. Keep exploring Julia and making it shine.

The design quality was the main attribute for why I chose Pixelgrade. The themes are well built, beautiful, easy to use and look professional. The editing mode is very nice, there are so many options to choose from, you can change everything as you want. I really appreciate your customer support and the documentation you provide.

Oana Filip's response (Pixelgrade team)

Design is indeed what sets us apart. Thank you for noticing, it means a lot. 😉

I was looking for something that was a little whimsical and out of the box and didn’t look like every other food blog out there. I chose Julia the moment I saw it. I loved that in some way, the homepage reminded me of a cookbook my mother had when I was younger.
I knew that the way it was designed was going to be perfect for how I wanted to present my food blog. I wanted something that was different. What I appreciate most is the simplicity. So many food blogs out in the market are bogged down with ads and pop‐ups, and I’m really trying to make an effort to keep things simple.

Oana Filip's response (Pixelgrade team)

It was a pleasure to put together an interview with you, dear Kelly. I am beyond happy you like Julia so much. 🤗

I actually picked up Julia because it looked different and in my opinion better than everything else on the market. I like that the theme is so configurable, that I can decide what is shown where. When doing commercial work, it is nice that you can give those posts extra exposure. I enjoy that it is thought of as blocks rather than just a way to show your posts. I enjoy that it is thought of as blocks rather than just a way to show your posts from A to Z.

You rock, Thomas! It’s great to have you onboard. 👏

Daniel & Suzanne, Food Bloggers from Ireland

We found Julia and never looked back. It ticks all the boxes! The clean modern presentation is exactly how we’d envisioned our site. And there is plenty of flexibility so we can customize Diced and Spiced to be our own. Every element of the theme is built with food bloggers in mind, from the layout options to the categorization system, to the built-in recipe shorthand that makes it simple to publish bespoke recipes.

Oana Filip's response (Pixelgrade team)

People like you keep our motivation up and kicking. Thanks a bunch! 💜

Mathilde Raoult, Food blogger from France

One of the reasons why I bought Julia was the fact that the theme is help­ing me bring my vision to real­i­ty both in terms of blog­ging and per­son­al port­fo­lio. What I love the most is that my readers can search through my recipes by the blink of an eye.

Oana Filip's response (Pixelgrade team)

Mathilde, I am super impressed by your work. It’s an honor to know that you use Julia to showcase your food experiences. Many thanks!

  • What will I need to use this theme?

    You will need your own domain and a web hosting with the current WordPress version installed. To make things easier for you, we recommend the Flywheel hosting company.

  • Can I customize the themes?

    Yes, all of our themes are licensed under GPL (like Word­Press itself), so you can cus­tomize them with no restric­tions. Feel free to adapt it to your own writing or business needs!

  • Do I need to purchase any plugins?

    This theme does not need premium plugins to configure it as showcased in the demo. Some plugins might require premium licenses for advanced features but that’s not a requirement.

  • Does this theme use a page builder?

    You should be able to run any page builder of your choice (Elementor, Divi, Visual Composer or others) with no problem. All this said we didn't use one when creating this theme.

  • Can I use the themes for client work?

    If it’s just one client, sure. If you’re a freelancer or a small agency that wants to create multiple websites for clients, you can pick the Themes Bundle plan and have unlimited access to all of our themes to build as many websites that you want.

  • What is your refund policy?

    Although we don’t think you’ll ever want a refund, our goal is always to be fair and reasonable. The refund policy is not any different: we offer a 14–days no‐risk money back guarantee on all of our themes. No questions asked!
