WordPress sometimes feels like a big candyshop to me but once in a while things just get ridiculous. Looking for a nice responsive portfolio theme I stumbled upon SPUN and was immediatly hooked. SPUN is a beautiful, minimal and intuïtive theme with a nice female energy. The homepage consist of rounded featured images which ease into color on mouseover, really making you feel he colors. With every photo a new relation with light is established giving optimum charge to your artwork. Every photo is then savely stored back in a slumber of black and white.

The ease in/out css3 effect is further put to good use on the header image, the menu, post meta, hell just about everything that will divert attention from the content. It makes the user experience pleasently reactive. The comments and widget erea and just above the footer are toggled, only in sight if you need them. Lets get a general impression:
As you can see there’s plenty of post formats and visual goodness. If anything SPUN is almost TOO tasteful, too careful in addressing the visitor but this is ofcourse purely a matter of preference and one could easily add some testosterone using css. I’ve found the coding very accessable and when I lacked the skills to add a category description Caroline personally answered the support ticket within 20 minutes! Yes, I’m a fan.
