Tilt – Diagonal Lines For RapidWeaver

I've been looking at diagonal lines as a design element for my next website.
I now need to look no further.

With  TILT from MultiThemes, Michelangelo has answered a lot of my questions. An intriguing theme, built with parallelograms – and responsive too. It has been especially optimised for Nexus and Galaxy tablets and has options for the iPad and iPhone. How cool is that? 

TILT's homepage didn't appeal to me when I first opened it, but zapping through the demo site, the whole design grew on me. Upon opening a page you are presented with a full-screen image. The page content will then slide up onto the screen or fade in, leaving the image visible through a diagonal cut-out. The result is pages that really grab your attention. The page animations can be disabled.

TILT incorporates a couple of interesting and unusual features. First: When the screen is reduced to tablet or smartphone size, a mobile menu is activated – it slides in with its own triangular container and activates a dropdown where all pages and sub-pages are visible. The second unusual feature: Three Extra Content Areas [ECA] can be activated on each page – but ECA 3 can be implemented as an accordion, triggered by a text or Font Awesome Icon. Finally, RapidWeaver galleries feature round thumbnails instead of the standard rectangular images.

TILT has settings for 7 front and 7 background colours (for the parallelograms), 6 background images a number of background tiles and is delivered with 13 different different fonts.
I'm not keen on having to choose 'Colour 1' as opposed to 'Purple' or 'Light Purple' and as a typographer, I like to know if I'm working with Abel or Open Sans instead of 'Font 12', but that is just a matter of personal taste.

I searched for a long time for settings for the standard paragraph font without finding it. Michelangelo has supplied a PDF-handbook on the DMG, that explains not only how to set up fonts, but also code examples for animating headlines and the content of ECAs. The demo site is also included as a RW6 Project for your reference.

TILT is available for an introductory period with a 25% price reduction.
