Infograbbit: New Premium Template

Infograbbit is a premium resume template designed for those wishing to promote a simple yet stylish online presence:

Infograbbit is available to purchase from ThemeForest for $17 (or $15 for pre-paying members) and includes six colour variations for this theme.

This template is designed to be used primarily as a one-page portfolio site, making it a cost-effective and reliable solution for those wishing to develop a simple online presence to show off their skills.

It uses infographic-style presentation, including some exclusive Blogger gadgets and is very easy to customize to your individual requirements. Take a look at the live demonstration to see this template in action.

Main features of the Infograbbit template

The home page features a unique anti-layout offering visual representations for your online resume including:
  • Configurable overview and CSS3 styled avatar
  • Pie chart integration using Google Chart Tools for easy customization
  • Unique "Quick Contact" gadget including Google Maps integration for your business location (very easy to set up!)
  • Stylized calendar gadget with links to recent blog posts
  • CSS3-styled "Skills Set" gadget - just add your skills to the list gadget for impressive display
  • Draggable work history timeline powered by jQuery
  • Auto-updating portfolio thumbnails, which link to your recent posts
  • Links to your social media accounts, with automatic icons
  • QR code generated for your unique blog title
This template is coded in HTML5 with CSS3  enhancements for supporting browsers, and is compatible back to Internet Explorer 7 (it will display in IE6, but I no longer actively code for this archaic browser and cannot guarantee all effects will work).

About this template

I had initially designed this template in response to ThemeForest's "Out of the Box" competition. My concept was to design a new spin on the traditional "resume" using interactive graphical elements. In choosing to design this for the Blogger platform, I hoped to ensure required customizations are easy to implement, and that users of this template can set up an online presence using Blogger's free service at minimal cost.

Infograbbit is available to purchase through ThemeForest for $17 (with a $2 reduction for pre-payment). The download package includes all template files, images, gadget codes and documentation required to install and edit this theme.

I hope you enjoy using this theme as much as I have in designing it! Please feel free to offer your comments below.
