Propaganda

A simple and fast portfolio theme for Wordpress

A fast Wordpress theme that I wanted to be unique and original. Mainly made for my portfolio, it can be used for any portfolio.

Context

As a front-end developer, it’s mandatory to have a unique portfolio website. I didn’t want a classic one, that everyone has and everyone forgets. With a gif behind the hero, and some percentage on skills.

My wish was to also make it fully customizable content-wise. Even if I knew WordPress quite well, I wanted to make a theme from A to Z.

Result

The biggest challenge was to create the custom fields (or metabox) without any plugins. Usually, developers use ACF, but I didn’t want to be dependent to a third party of any kind. I named the theme Propaganda because it reminded me the cold sovietic propaganda style.

You can see the Cutsomizer side of the theme in the following screenshot:

It is not the most perfect WordPress theme, so I’ll make sure to update it to improve it from time to time.
