Salmon & Cream is the first premium theme by the new label goodbye, agency! Its looks follow modern design principles, first and foremost responsiveness and flat UI. It will remind you of the formerly called Metro now known as Modern UI of Windows 8. The theme works fully responsive and supports retina devices.

Salmon & Cream: Premium Theme Made In Germany
goodbye, agency! is a brand of the German designer and freelancer collective Idee & Anhang. The group wants to make themselves known for providing exceptional themes for both WordPress as well as the brand-new blog platform Ghost. They will not turn you down if you are looking for a complete online strategy for your business, too.
The first publicly visible result of their cooperation, the theme Salmon & Cream, nourishes hopes that Idee & Anhang might be able to breathe new life into the more or less saturated and conventionally oriented theme provider industry.
Its been a little over two weeks ago, that goodbye, agency! decided to sell Salmon & Cream via designer’s latest darling, Creative Market. The theme carries a price-tag of 75$ for one single license, read: one domain. Three of our valuable readers are able to win a free license and save 75 bucks to dissipate in luxury. Read on…
Salmon & Cream: Fully Responsive and Mobile First
Salmon & Cream is a portfolio theme. Freelancers, especially those working in one of the creative, visual businesses, find a playground to perfectly present their own creations. Lawyers and tax consultants are advised to look elsewhere.
If you happen to first view Salmon & Cream on a very large screen, it will immediately become clear, that goodbye, agency! followed a mobile first approach. Screen elements seemed to be jumping right into my eyes from my 27″ Full HD. On my Galaxy Note everything looks decent, with larger than usual touch targets. As I already mentioned, the theme is fully responsive, converting the top navigation to an off canvas menu in smaller viewports. Menus can be three levels deep.
If salmon is what you eat, but not what you want to look at, you’ll be happy to hear that besides the color scheme of Salmon & Cream, two other, more conventional schemes are supplied, too. You can easily imagine what Bahama Blue and Concrete Gray will look like. Salmon & Cream is internationally usable, yet only comes with English language integrated. The theme creators stick to the standard of PoEdit, which allows for easy localization. The necessary .po/.mo files are part of the theme. The integration of Theme-Options in the backend is especially useful if you are the technically lesser skilled WordPress user.
The first premium theme by goodbye, agency! is definitely to be called exceptional. Being exceptional is what the team behind the theme focusses at. As they told me, they want to deliver experiences that are far from boring, that stand out from the crowd. I can confirm: Mission accomplished!
