Our new concrete5 theme is now available to buy on the concrete5 marketplace! Derwen is a responsive website built with HTML5, CSS3 and Bootstrap v3.0.3, and has 5 different colour themes, changeable in the concrete5 dashboard. Derwen is the welsh word for "Oak tree" and the theme colours are inspired by the Welsh countryside. The colours are Wild Rose (pink), Nut Brown, Dusk Blue, Slate (dark grey) and Oak Leaf (green). The theme comes with instructions and custom templates for creating blogs and portfolios.

This template will adjust to different browser widths, and content looks good on a mobile or on a tablet, such as IPad. When viewed on a mobile, a collapsible menu is displayed.

We love concrete5 and wanted to provide a concrete5 theme that is easy for people to use to create portfolios and blogs. Blogs can be created with a small thumbnail and description, or with a responsive grid layout. Portfolios can have two column, three column or four column responsive layouts. We have added a hover effect that you can use on your portfolio - it is easy to add your own text to the hover through the concrete5 dashboard. Full instructions are provided for creating the blog and portfolios that are on our demo website.

This theme is packed full of added extras, such as Font Awesome icons, Bootstrap glyphicons and social icons. In addition, we have added retina.js so that you can provide higher resolution images to users with retina screens. You will find all of the instructions to use these features in the Derwen package folder.

We have provided 10 page types, as well as several custom templates for blogs and portfolio pages, to give you various options in page layout. We have listened to customer feedback and provided a home page type that you can use for a full width background image, and another page type that can be used if you want to have a full width slider.

We hope that you enjoy this new theme and look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions or comments. The Derwen theme can be purchased on the concrete5 marketplace.
