What’s Great In Perennial DesignOrbital ?

This theme has been developed to out-beat traditional blog and news website concepts. Many blogging themes are developed with single column list view layout concept. If you check news or magazine themes then you just see a crappy homepage with lots of featured sections. Most of these old design concept slows your website speed and also affect reading experience.

But Perennial theme will keep balance between presentation and speed. If you check demo screen-shot or live preview then you will find amazing font style for heading, body, menu, and other areas. Thy way it shows featured posts on homepage is just awesome. We can clearly see that homepage area uses ajax “infinite scroll” pagination style. At the same time, you can also choose numbered pagination for your website.
