Well, UpThemes released a brand new theme that makes building a beautiful portfolio website amazingly easy.
It’s called Creative. And I had the chance to play around with it a bit.
And I was very surprised with it.
Check out some of the cool features of this theme below.

Build Your Portfolio
With this new custom post type, you have a separate section of your site where you can add Portfolio items, tag them, and categorize them.
Keeping your portfolio items separate from your posts and pages makes managing your site much easier.
By default, the Creative theme shows your recent portfolio items on the homepage. But Freefolio also lets you display your Portfolio on any page or post using a few shortcodes.
Easily Import Dribble Shots
Designers and freelancers are flocking to Dribble to showcase their works with other designers.
Now, Freefolio lets you import all your Dribble shots directly into your WordPress site and automatically turns them into Portfolio items.
Featured Content Slider
Showcase your most important portfolio items in a homepage featured slider.
All you have to do is add a tag to the items you want display in your slider. And then enter the tag into your slider’s setting.
And voila! A clean slider.
I wanted to test out Creative, so I decided to set up a brand new portfolio site from scratch.
After I installed a new instance of WordPress, I installed the Creative theme, installed the Freefolio plugin, imported some Dribble shots, and adjusted a few settings.
From start to finish, it took me less than 15 minutes.
And the end result looked like I had spent a few days on it.
The creative theme was built with a few Typekit fonts.
These fonts are beautiful. And a great way to accent your creative work.
Usually, you would need to pay for a Typekit subscription to get these fonts.
However, Creative includes these without any subscription.
