Venus: Business & Portfolio WordPress Theme (Business)

Venus is an easy-to-use, ajax-powered, powerful and modern WordPress theme that allows you to put your awesome work or content in front of your visitors.

The real power in Venus comes from the incredible home page which is a set of 5 widget areas giving you an amazing amount of flexibility and control. Combine that with the one-of-a-kind ajax portfolio and you’ve got a beautiful, clean, modern canvas from which to work.

What some buyers are saying

I have been playing with this theme all day and I am still finding new and amazing ways that WP is being used. Absolutely incredible use of the admin panel, pages that are customizable into oblivion and the damn thing even re-sizes great on my iPhone.


We ended up buying this and love the ability to “use” and modify the sample setup. I’m amazed at how good this theme looks out of the box. Great work.


One of the rare occasions, where typography is really great.


Just downloaded “Venus”. I am in disbelief at how complete this theme is! Hats off to you fellas.
