B:LIV (pronounced Believe) is a minimalist fully responsive WordPress theme inspired by Swiss design principles. Bold, clean typography along with fine touches of design elements will make your content stand out and keep your visitors happy.

Keeping with the minimalist, bold design approach the front and portfolio pages have a strong emphasis on images and large titles. Everything is kept as simple as possible, relying on spacing to give structure to the layouts.

The theme was designed with simplicity in mind, both for the visitor and also for the editor. We’ve used the latest trends in responsive design using HTML5+CSS3+JavaScript, giving you a lightweight page size and pleasant browsing experience.
