I was reading through some of the comments on this theme and noticed this exchange between a prospective buyer and the developer.

Great looking theme. pre purchase question On the demo the homepage seems to blink white when the text changes under the name so it goes completely white. Also on the portfolio page when you hover over each work example the page goes white. Is this a bug.

Within an hour, the developer said this.

Hello. Thanks for your comment, in which browser do you see this bug?

A few minutes later, this.

We were able to reproduce this issue in Mozilla Firefox + macOS, and we fixed it, today we will release an update of the theme. Thanks again for your comment.

And a half hour later.

Theme updated.

That’s a great sign, I’d say.  When the developer gets on an issue and sorts it out that fast, you can bet that the support, the theme updates, the little annoying bug fixes are going to be fast and efficient.

Odessa vCard, DJ, Creative, Personal Trainer and Designer Resumé

Odessa DJ Designer Business and Personal Trainer Theme

More than a vCard, this is a complete solution for your online calling card.  No mater what business you’re in, Odessa has a look that can help make your personal and professional live a bigtime success.  I think the four demo pages are an interesting selection, seemingly random. Creative, corporate, DJ and Fitness?  Hmm.  Who came up with that idea?  Anyway, I’m highlighting this as a vCard because it’s the only one I’d recommend to anybody.  Also, because Visual Composer sucks.

Maintain a Modern & Inspirational Portfolio. If you’re a creative professional, you’ll want to be sure that your portfolio is a stellar reflection of this. The best way to prove yourself to a suspecting client is through your portfolio, as it can be seen as an extension of your work and helps sell your talents to prospective buyers. A Theme like Odessa is a stunning starting point for any creative professional either you are freelancer or agency.

If you need to display your creative work online with a robust canvas of options and with not a pixel out of place, Odessa is a great choice! It’s undoubtedly a high-performance WordPress theme, which tells a story through imagery, fonts and layouts. It can be used to create just about any kind of site you want, and is definitely up for the task of making a stunning portfolio.

That’s what they say.  I say this, anybody using Visual Composer to build a portfolio probably has no idea what they hell they’re doing.   To quote some guy on Reddit.

Each element they use an ajax request to load in the content. Say you had a pretty large page with lots of elements, that’s a lot of requests that most cheap shared hosting slows down on because of CPU usage.

And you get something that looks something like this.

Visual Composer Sucks

So, as a vCard, I think you’ll have fewer issues since you probably won’t have  a ton of images on your site, though maybe I’m just sort of talking out my ass on this one?  Anyway, let me know what you think.

Ballard, Modern Personal CV, Restaurant and Agency Theme

ballard-personal.tommusdemos.wpengine.com-Ballard Personal – Just another Your SUPER-powered WP Engine Multisite Install site

This theme is called Ballard.  Is it named for the neighborhood in Seattle, famous for ultra-rich hipsters and $10 cups of coffee, expensive dive bars and aging hippies with million dollar houses?  If so, I’m not sure it’s hit the mark in terms of design.

Ballard is a incredibly clean, basic and flat vCard or personal resumé theme.  Made by Tommus Rhodus, Ballard has a distinct style, a multi-niche design that works for more than just vCards, there are several different demo styles we’re going to highlight in this post. (PS – Tommus Rhodus created another great theme we just reviewed, it’s called Foundry. It’s a flat, Bootstrap theme for business, so it’s got a lot in common with Ballard here.)

What does Tommus Rhodus have to say about Ballard?  Read on to find out.

Ballard is a finely crafted, minimal WordPress Theme for creative professionals, restaurants, law firms and agencies looking to establish a smart online presence. We’ve gone for a simple approach without a page builder, meaning your site will be easy to use, and most importantly, fast to load with no plugin bloat!

Stand out from the multi purpose crowd with bold templates that bring your resume or portfolio to life. Build a unique agency website that represents the attitude of your brand.  Ballard’s strong restaurant template has a contemporary design edge that blends seamlessly with your business aesthetic.  We think Ballard looks so good, there should be a law against the included legal firm template!

Agencies, personal CVs, restaurants and law firms, that’s the niches that Tommus Rhodus recommends you consider Ballard for.  I don’t know about any of that but I do know a little bit about Tommus Rhodus, enough to know they make really cleanly coded, very popular WordPress themes.  The vast majority of themes they’ve created get rave reviews, averaging 4.8 overall with almost 2500 total reviews so far across all of their themes.

That’s a lot of reviews.

Considering they’ve sold their themes nearly 50k times, they’ve got their game dialed in.  Support is fantastic, the documentation is strong.  There’s really quite a bit to like with all their themes and Ballard is set to join the ranks of the best vCards around.

Here’s the simple, dark background restaurant theme style.

Here’s a strange one, the blue screen of death WordPress theme!

They’re saying that’s for a design or creative agency.  Sure, why not?  Who needs more than a color and some words?

Well, we’ll be back in the near future to take a crack at more reviews of WordPress gems.  Stay tuned!

Shift CV WordPress Dark Resume theme for creative vCards

ShiftCV is a full service resumé, CV theme and personal portfolio. The simple look hides a ton of great features though and we’re sure you’re going to love this template.

We’ve been on a really big vCard kick lately and found this great looking, dark and stormy theme that you may be interested in.  For designers who want a great looking CV card WordPress theme, ShiftCV could be what you need.  I love the colorful design, the high visual way information is show to potential clients, customers and employers.

Reversal

Reversal is a simple and professional vCard theme for WordPress

With a fun horizontal scrolling style, people aren’t likely to forget the Reversal theme, or your personal online profile, anytime soon. That’s a good thing.  A very good thing.

This theme is called Reversal and it’s been described as an ‘about me WordPress theme‘  I like that description a lot.  Not to be confused with traditional personal blog themes, Reversal is a full fledged vCard or resumé theme where you can share your contact information, social media links, your resumé or curriculum vitae, your portfolio and more.  It’s a great way to introduce yourself to the rest of the world.  Best of all, the hot side scrolling action that truly sets this theme apart from the rest.

With over a thousand downloads, the reviews are largely positive, this theme gets a 4.17 rating out of 5 stars on ThemeForest.

Developed by Bit Fade, this is their description of this vCard wonder.

Reversal is a clean, minimal and elegant one page portfolio WordPress Theme suitable for any kind of creative and business use. The theme features optional one page structure with cool side-to-side page scrolling transitions. The theme is fully responsive and has been optimized for tablet and mobile platforms. Reversal also employs compression of all css/javascript ensuring lightning fast page loading times, so your visitors are not kept waiting. See below for a more detailed feature list.

I definitely recommend this theme for any online resume, particularly when you need a theme that really attracts attention due to it’s unique layout and design.

One big drawback is that this theme doesn’t work with PHP 7+.  That’s a shame, since it’s so much faster than PHP 5.6, which is the highest you can go safely with the Reversal theme.  It’s a function of the framework that this theme was built on, so it’s not likely that they ever decide to update this theme.

Still, a solid theme if you like the look.

Next WordPress vCard and Portfolio theme

Award winning, metro style inspired, unique navigation, animated ocntent, parallax scrolling background, standalone pages and more, this theme has a lot to offer. Oh yeah, it’s called NEXT.

While NEXT does get good reviews in general, 4.17 average, this one caught my eye.

looks perfect when you buy it, it’s not easy to install and you can’t develop it yourself.  I spend my money for nothing, you cant develop NEXT how you want and it’s not easy to upload stuff.

In fairness, I had to edit the hell out of that to make it make sense, it wasn’t very well written, so I’m going to say it’s possible the reviewer has no idea what they’re talking about.

As for whether I still recommend this theme?  I’m going on gut instinct, I think it’s still a solid theme and worth the effort it would take to get it set up properly and customized.  It’ll be fast, look good and user friendly when all is said and done.

Ego

Ego WordPress vCard or resume theme

With a name like Ego, it has to be good. That’s what I figure anyway an Ego does work well as a handsome WordPress vCard theme.

Ego is a WordPress business card.  That’s about as basic as I can make the description.  But sometimes, you don’t need to describe things more than they need to be described.  But, I think I will after all.  Well, actually, I’ll let the theme’s developer, UD Themes, have a crack at it first.

Ego is a sleek, fully responsive, onepage WordPress theme that screams with attitude. It boasts a fullscreen slider with custom captions, an AJAX portfolio and contact form, a blog and tons of styling options. Its the perfect WordPress theme for the freelancer or small design studio that wants to showcase their work in style.

Over 200 theme options, a responsive layout, unlimited skins (who wants to be limited to one or two skins?), sliders, parallax background images,  AJAX contact for and so much more, this theme has a lot to offer.  In terms of the style, it’s modern and sleek, but it remains user friendly.  Never confusing.  At over 3000 downloads and a 4.4 average star rating out of 5, this theme is insanely popular too.

UD Themes has created a monster!

Great support, fantastic documentation, great reviews, great features, what more can you ask for?

Uh oh, here’s a problem though, it may not be offering support anymore.

Hi, your support website is not working anymore. Which “captcha” plugin do you recommend for the Ego Onepage contact form? (I’ve been getting a lot of spam e-mails lately, all sent through the website’s contact form).

Bellblis

That’s a problem and I hope it gets sorted out quickly, otherwise I can’t recommend this theme anymore.

BookCard is among my favorite personal WordPress website themes.  It’s great for freelancers, designers, writers and more, the style is plain to see, BookCard is a lot different than many of the themes we review.  The style is completely novel, there’s nothing else like this theme on the market.  That’s probably why it’s so popular?

Selfless

Selfless vCard for Professional Photographers and Creative People

The Selfless vCard theme is a great solution for professionals to establish an incredible resumé and portfolio theme.  Clean designs are easy to use and make for a great user experience and that’s what Selfless is all about.

 

We’ve had more than a few photographers ask us to highlight some more great looking themes specifically built to act as an online calling cart foor photographic work.  So, with that in mind, we went out and found this theme called Selfless.  Selfless is a WordPress resumé and portfolio theme that’s sure to please the most picky of photographers.  Images are what it’s all about and Selfless does a great job of highlighting high quality photographs on every page.  I think that Selfless is among the very best of the portfolio and vCard combination themes.  Sometimes, these themes fail to do either thing well, but Selfless gets them both right.

The developer of Selfless is Shorti, and this is what they have to say about Selfless.

Selfless is a powerful one page WordPress theme designed for a personal or company portfolio. Using advanced jQuery features, the layout is designed for all user types providing a rich and smooth browsing experience. This is the WordPress version of the theme and therefore is extremely simple to install and manage!

With a portfolio and blog, theme options panel for simple and familiar editing and customization, SEO friendly code, one page infinite scrolling option, Google fonts and a responsive design, this theme has what it takes to be a very successful vCard theme for you or your business.
