Beautifully minimalist themes: simplicity at its best

One of the things I like most about PixelGrade’s themes is their consistency. If I had an online media empire, I would use a different PixelGrade theme for each website.

For my personal site, I opted for Patch, which has a more ‘in your face’ style and font selection than the very similar-looking Hive, which I also considered. If I decide to create a separate portfolio for my photography work, I’ll almost certainly use Timber, which has a similar feeling as the two previously mentioned themes.

The tile display algorithm of posts on the front page works great (though posts sometimes overlap), and the responsive designs work seamlessly on all mobile devices and huge screens I’ve tried so far. And the pre-selected text formats (dropcap, highlight, pull left, blockquote…) save me a lot of time in making an appealing layout for my articles.

I also love how the post layout changes depending on whether the featured image is orientated as a portrait or a landscape. On this point, however, there are two minor issues. Firstly, I’d like to be able to manually choose one layout or the other (sometimes, the template gives me a landscape layout despite the photo being taller than it is wide), and secondly, when a portrait post has too many categories, it messes up the layout and prevents the text from wrapping around the displayed picture.

Customer service is great, and though I haven’t brought up the two previous points, they have been extremely helpful the few times I’ve needed assistance.

Finally, however, there’s no denying PixelGrade themes are expensive – almost twice the price of other great looking WordPress templates. But hey, you pay for what you get, and I just couldn’t bring myself to buying a cheaper theme when this one so perfectly matched my style.

Andrei's response (Pixelgrade team)

Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such in-depth feedback. You made our day. 🙂 As for the minor issues you encountered, the latest updates fixed them. We’re grateful for these kind words, and hopefully, they will keep coming along the way.

  • 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!
