Westbound — A Storyful WordPress Blogging Theme
Compatible with Gutenberg, WordPress 5, WooCommerce. Westbound is a WordPress blog and WooCommerce theme with refined minimalist design centered around precise proportions and elegant typography. It is created with ease-of-use in mind and is as uncluttered on the inside as it is on the front-end, offering a truly bloat-free experience that is sure to delight both the WordPress beginners and the experienced bloggers. The clean eclectic minimalist style and the lean approach are inspired by the works of renowned architects: the Bauhaus school, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto, Le Corbusier, Zaha Hadid, as well as by the best examples of contemporary print magazines. The philosophy of this theme’s design is to be engaging and appealing, while still being unobtrusive and keeping the focus on your content.
Westbound uses the power of storytelling offering great readability and convenience, which makes it a great choice for any creative media: e.g. a fashion magazine (or a fashionista blog), a lifestyle blog, a travel journal (travelogue), an architecture blog, an art blog, a curator’s blog, a music band blog, a photography blog (e.g. good with VSCO-processed photographs), a food blog, a restaurant reviews blog, a movie critic blog, an illustrator blog, a writer’s blog, or some other type of a creative endeavor. And don’t forget to take advantage of the Instagram feed in the footer and the social media icons in the header and in the footer for an even more engaging experience.
This theme offers e-commerce functionality (powered by WooCommerce), which lets easily set up a store and start selling your products. The aesthetics of the WooCommerce shop is meant to tightly follow the elegance of the blog for a consistent user experience. This WordPress theme is customizable and offers a number of blog layout options: masonry, two-column and three-column grids. Westbound also offers different layouts for the product and shop views. Please see the theme demo to get an idea of how these look. Among other things, you can customize the accent color and use your own logo (a custom image or your own text string).
