From the blog post:
Today we are glad to release a beautiful, simple and clean portfolio WordPress theme — SimpleFolio, designed by Omar E. Corrales and released for Smashing Magazine and its readers. SimpleFolio is a portfolio theme that includes a blog and a very extensive option page that allows you to exclude all your portfolio items from the blog page. It also includes a front page slider.
And some insights from the designer:
I created this theme after getting tired of all the fancy design themes that are very popular now a days, this is a design for people that just need the job done without complicating them selfs. The best use can be either for just someone thats starting to blog or some artist that needs to expose there art.
Our thoughts? SimpleFolio is an excellent free wordpress theme released under GPL. The quality of the build is first class. The range of page options and page templates is on a par with many commercial wordpress themes. It is clear that Omar has put a lot of effort into producing a beautiful wordpress theme that he and the Smashing Magazine team should be very proud of. Well done!
