Crowdfunding Got a Whole More Accessible to Everybody

funder Crowdfunding Got a Whole More Accessible to Everybody

Crowdfunding represents for many of us a source of inspiration and hope for those who have great ideas and creative minds. However, there are some other people who believe that there’s more into crowdfunding than we may think about.

Just recently I discovered that you don’t need to be a programmer, developer or designer in order to build a successful business based on crowdfunding. Now, when the trend seems to go to another level and more people start projects based on this idea, we decided to build our own community of crowdfunding.

How? Is simple and everybody can do it through the popular friendly platform called WordPress. Thanks to huge demand and popularity of the crowdfunding concept and ThemeForest community, developers started working on bringing new and innovative solutions to help you build your dream community of crowdfunding members.

With that being said, I am extremely happy to present the top WordPress themes that help you build an awesome crowdfunding site in just minutes with less than $60.

Best Retro WordPress Themes

16.retro wordpress themes Best Retro WordPress Themes
15.retro wordpress themes Best Retro WordPress Themes
Web design elements of the recent past are exactly what appeals to retro design. In fact, retro is concerned more with the recent past than it is other periods. And technology, especially technology greatly influenced by culture, is perfect for resurrection twenty years later. We see t-shirts with old video game slogans, like the Oregon Trail t-shirt (“You have died of dysentery”), or shirts featuring Atari 2600 game characters.What retro does not do, though, is use the older design techniques. Retro, after all, is not an appreciation of the recent past, but the reclamation of the recent past. In the Southwestern United States, architecture similar to pueblo or adobe style architecture is very popular. But architects don’t use adobe or vigas in their building; they use frame and stucco. Similarly, a fashion designer basing a dress on the designs of the roaring 20′s wouldn’t use cotton, wool or silk, but instead would utilize nylon, spandex, or a combination of synthetics and natural materials.

scroller theme 20+ Parallax Scrolling WordPress Themes

Parallax scrolling WordPress themes, a little like one page themes, are hot right now in the world of theme design. Will they still be hot next year, which isn’t so far away now? Who knows. All we know is, at this moment in time, there isn’t a design that packs more of a ‘wow’ factor than a parallax scrolling one. Combine the parallax trend with the one page trend, as some of the themes in this collection do, and you have a cool theme indeed. So if you need to impress with your design skills: if you’re a web designer, creative agency, artist or photographer, for example, we would urge you to consider a parallax scrolling theme.
