At last I was able to redesign my portfolio for 2015 with a blazing fast basic wordpress theme. It’s hard to manage time for deigns and developers to redesign their own portfolio. So i decided to go with an existing free theme with a lot of customization to suit my branding style.

Style: Minimalist with a heavy focus on contents.

Google Page speed score: 91 

Pingdom page speed grade: 90 

With premium wordpress themes I found a lot of bloated code, tons of stylesheets and s files causing serious performance issue. Premium themes need a lot of customization to optimize performance and most of the time when you concatenate css and js files into one file, your site breaks immediately. To get rid of this problem I find using light weight minimalist theme is a great solution with responsive layout.

I will update the theme from time to time. If you need a high performance portfolio theme or customizing premium theme for fast loading performance, you can consult on the comment sections. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
