4. Pivot | Responsive Multipurpose WordPress Theme
The final entry from our Portfolio of premium WordPress themes suited to creating the ultimate CV is Pivot for WordPress.
Pivot has been created with a stylish flat style so the colour palette throughout is very pleasing on the eye, however if you want to give things your own flair, you can of course easily customise many aspects of the design via the simple to use Theme Options (powered by the WordPress Customiser) – using either Visual Composer or our own Ebor Template Builder, you can have the ultimate online portfolio with ease.
5. Sam Martin – Personal vCard Resume WordPress Theme
Sam Martin from the easy to pronounce PotenzaGlobalSolutions is our next entry, and its certainly one of the finest offering within this niche and deserving of your attention.
The theme has a distinctive, side navigation style, which oozes professionalism, and thanks to the easy to use options panel, you can apply your own accent colours and more. Page building is handled by Visual Composer so its easy to get to grips with, and with full WPML and WooCommerce support you could easily use Sam Martin to create something much more than a CV.
6. Resume Portfolio & CV vCard – Gridus
If you have seen any of our previous theme lists, you will know im a real fan of colour, so its no surprise our next theme is a vibrant affair in the form of Gridus from neuethemes.
Gridus, is a grid based design which allows you to present all the key information about yourself you may wish to share in a very engaging manner. Building pages is also interesting with Gridus, as the theme uses a widget based builder similar to WPs own customise, but once you get over this small learning curve this one is a joy to use.
7. Me – Creative Portfolio & Resume / CV WordPress Theme
Another colourful design next in the form of the sublime Me from M_adnan. Me uses bold typography and vibrant colours to create a very fun, but unique feeling base to showcase your best asset – you.
The theme is bundles with industry stalwarts Visual Composer and Revolution Slider and is certainly more than capable of create large complex sites thanks to its fully featured blog, portfolio and more. Together with tonnes of customisation options and bespoke elements, Me proves itself a worthy contender and was an easy pick for today’s post.
8. Experience – Multi-Concept CV/Resume WordPress Theme
Another fine example of a theme which is not afraid to use colour. Experience by DivEngine is one of the freshest designs iv featured in any list and has quickly become one of my personal favourites.
Utilising a similar ‘card’ based look to our very own Stack, Experience is a gorgeous example what can be done with clever use of colours and imagery and the result is stunning. The theme is powered by simple to use theme options and page templates, which does mean you may not get the flexibility of others features in this list, but with a design this strong, its certainly worth it.
9. Themenum – Personal Vcard Resume & Cv Responsive WordPress Theme
Our next entry is a relatively small-timer, with just 20 sales as I write this – however Themenum from Themenum is an absolute stunner and well worth checking out.
Featuring a dark, yet high contrast design and powered by Visual Composer, Themenum is easy to use and gives you all you could need to create a truly individual CV. For those who like to really consider their design’s prior to use, the theme is also bundled with a complete PSD package, which really finishes of a quality package.
10. iam – Resume / Personal / Portfolio Responsive WordPress Theme
Our final entry is another dark and moody design from florathemesltd, Iam. This theme has a neat, bordered look, with thick dark borders around the whole page but this is well complemented by the minimal use of an accent colour (which you can tweak as you wish of course)
Using Iam should be familiar to anyone who has used a Premium theme thanks to the bundled copy of Visual Composer, however you will find the plugin is very simple to understand even if your a newcomer.
