You’re a web designer, an illustrator, a photographer, or any other creative job. You know you need a portfolio but you’d rather work on something that pays the bills rather than spend days agonizing on what your dream portfolio will look like. So you keep putting things off and procrastinating. Or maybe you start working on your new portfolio, but after 4 different failed concepts you’re still not satisfied. And all the while your potential clients are turned off by your three year-old portfolio, which you don’t even have the courage to update anymore.
How do I know you so well? It’s simple, it’s because I was in the same position. I went through all of this before deciding that all this pain and frustration had to end. It was time for something new, something that would make all of our lives easier. And this is how Silverio was born.
I knew it wouldn’t be easy. There’s already a ton of gorgeous portfolio themes out there. But I didn’t let the challenge scare me, and thought long and hard about what was missing from these themes. I finally came to the conclusion that nothing was missing! These themes all had tons of features, and I knew I couldn’t compete with them on that front.
So I took a page out of Apple’s book and decided to do one thing, but do it really well. So this is why Silverio is 100% focused on being a great portfolio theme, making it easy to add content to your projects, and putting the spotlight on your work.
