    I like the overall feel, however I’m seeing a lot of vertical scrolling below the end of the content on “pages” but not the blog and individual “posts”. Nice.

    Nice work! It would be cool the read even more in what way you worked together? Were you using Github? Did Justin let Tung touch the code at all? What is Photoshop?

      I always set up a private P2 for collaboration on projects. P2 is far easier than email. We also used GitHub (I’m about to make the repo public momentarily).

      We mostly stayed in our own spaces. Tung did all of the CSS stuff. I done most of the PHP stuff. We both done a little work in between. It’s a bit different though. I’m used to working on my own, so you have to try and find a balance between each other’s workflows and skillsets.

      Justin and I collaborated on three themes: News, Visual, and now Ravel. All three turned out great IMO. Usually, I make a mess, get Justin to clean it up, then find something else to mess up. That seems to be the formula 🙂 .

    Nice theme, the concept is nice but I kinda miss a real sidebar.

    My actuall blog theme( not much but designed it myself) is a child of a pretty new WP framework, Omega. Inspected the code a bit and since this Omega looks like the fruit of Genesis and Stargazer love, what chances I have to use Ravel and implement it atlast a footer sidebar? On the framework I use I do that by calling the sidebar in my child theme functions file with a hook.

    As a photographer, I really like the feel of the new theme. But, I agree with ‘badcat’ about the extra space below the pages.

    Great job Tung and Justin!

      One more thing. Is this going to be available at the WordPress repo? Can you post a link when/if that happens. I have some photographer friends that may be interested in this.

        It has already been submitted to WordPress.org. We just didn’t want to wait a month or longer before releasing the theme.

        The download link on the theme page points to the ZIP file on WordPress.org right now. So, if they install it now, they’ll get any updates from .ORG when they are released.

    Really nice, a lot of great details on this one (like that awesome search field). Also, kudos for styling post formats, so many developers/designers ignore it these days.

    Small critique – pagination style from the portfolio would also fit nicely for the blog pagination but it’s really nitpicking. You make a great duo, keep it up.

    Awesome. Thank you for this work of art.

    Hi guys, nice work. But I gotta ask about that extra space below and to the side of the pages: what’s with that? And can it be fixed? You haven’t responded to anyone asking about this.

      It’s caused by the diagonal CSS background shapes. I haven’t figured out how to work around it without removing it entirely so I’ve limited the display of those shapes to devices with large screen space only.
