Conceived for those that need a minimalist design with a place to put their work up front, the Portfolio template is built from scratch to be the perfect base for photographs or other projects. It was designed to keep clutter to a minimum, a trend on recent templates, so the first thing visitors will see is what your skills have to offer them. Animated previews on load and hover add a professional sheen that brings your site to life, all customizable for your needs.

As with any other Joomla template – and different CMS families available – a good template is just the starting point for a beautiful website. Modern templates are not bound by a rigid structure as those from early years, being conceived as a base over which users can implement their own touch. The Portfolio template from Gavick includes a wealth of intuitive, clear settings that expand your customization capabilities, even if the initial layout seems basic. Change primary and background colors or add a logo with a click, add your favorite Google font for a stylized look, and set your frontpage image preview layout to just your specifications.
With a responsive and fast layout, the template adds flair to its core design with unique CSS load and hover animations as well as useful typography to diversify your content. You can even modify the animation direction, speed and type. When it comes to writing, Portfolio comes with prepared typography such as nested lists, tables and blockquotes designed to blend effortlessly with the template aesthetic.
Portfolio is Gavick’s way to celebrate 10 years of Joomla. The new template is a gift from the company to the amazing community who have supported them along the way. Portfolio is built from the ground up with LESS, no framework required, for a fast, smooth site experience that’s as lightweight as it can be. It is also entirely open-source so everybody is free to contribute to this template’s development.
