Performancing has announced its WordPress theme release for October. Dubbed Estranged the theme is one of the bolder offerings in the Performancing themes for WordPress collection, with generous use of strong orange and relatively large typeface.
Estranged is a two-column theme that features large, standout headers, and easy-to read body and link text. The color scheme involves subtle shades of grey and red, with a bit of orange, and these add to that simple yet eye-catching look. The proportions of the columns and the headers are just right, making ample use of the rule of thirds popular among those in the visual arts. Contrast is just right–having adequate readability, but not at the cost of being too much of a glare. The theme also makes adequate use of white space, so the blog doesn’t look cramped.
