Modular Theme ]

Last week I launched a new premium theme: Modular.

Modular is a single page Tumblr theme packed with features for bands and musicians. First set up your eye catching header image, then keep all your fans in the know by showcasing recent posts, Soundcloud tracks, upcoming shows from Songkick, latest releases, Instagram and merch from Big Cartel. Not in a band? Modular also works perfectly fine as a standalone theme, only turn on the features you need!

Features that come with Modular Theme:

  • Nice big header image
  • Show Soundcloud tracks
  • Link up to three releases to iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and Bandcamp
  • Show upcoming shows via Songkick or Bands in Town
  • Display photos from Flickr and Instagram
  • Display Merchandise items from your Big Cartel shop
  • Show Youtube videos
  • Use custom fonts from Typekit
  • Responsive layout

As well as all those awesome features, Modular Theme also includes over 80+ customization options so your colours and fonts can match your style.

Grab Modular from Tumblr’s Theme Garden.

Amplify 2 ]

Over the last three months, I have been busy creating “Amplify 2”. Amplify 2 is the successor to Amplify, which has been used by many bands on Tumblr for the last two years.

Amplify 2 was built entirely from the ground up and while it shares the same core features as its predecessor, it really is an entirely new theme.

What’s new? A refreshed design, more customise options, it’s responsive and for the tech savvy out there it also uses ajax/history so that all content is loaded on the fly (this means the music keeps playing). 

Rainbird Travels ]

I’ve decided to launch a separate blog to post up photos from my travels. I’ll be putting up a few photos from my trips for the last two years, but will mainly looking forward to posting photos from my upcoming trips to South West England, Chicago, Iceland and Germany later this year.

Before I visited America for the first time this year in June, I picked up this beast of a camera which has really springboarded my “I’m a point and shoot photographer” to having more interest in the hobby.

Flickr & Instagram pages

15th July 2013

Some updates across Reverb, Cookbook, Amplify, Travelogue & Pop Cultured themes this weekend.

I’ve made it easier to create gallery pages using either Instagram or Flickr. If you have an Instagram page using the old way, it will probably still work but I would advise you to switch to this method.

To create a Flickr gallery page see this guide:

To create an Instagram gallery page see this guide:

As always, if you bump into any issues shoot an email to support@girafficthemes.com
