[prMac.com] Kitchener, Canada - Veteran RapidWeaver theme and stack development house, seydesign, have unleashed their latest creation, Nuvem, a beautiful theme that leverages the finest design details with infinite control and their signature technologies. Nuvem makes incredible use of whitespace and color to perfectly define and contrast the elements of your page layout with exquisite detail.
This one-of-a-kind RapidWeaver theme is full to the brim with great features like beautiful background tiles on the body and on all 5 ExtraContent areas. Nuvem is responsive ready and built on a framework that includes other great abilities like SS3, SmartNav, Font Awesome and so much more.
Nuvem has the finest example of a built-in slideshow available in a RapidWeaver theme. Called SS3.2, the slide show allows for banner slide shows from built-in images, external images, text and content... just about anything. SS3.2 also has extensive options to control the slide show speed and effect as well as settings that can add details such as slider navigation and pagination.
With 5 (plus 1) ExtraContent areas, Nuvem gives users full flexibility to control their layout. Each ExtraContent area has it's own color settings and distinct look and feel, giving users layouts maximum impact and separation. The plus 1 ExtraContent area (area 12) comes in the form of a zone best utilized for Social Links, a free seydesign snippet that allows for the easy insertion of a social icon bar.
The Social Links icon bar is made possible in Nuvem by the inclusion of the Font Awesome font library. Font Awesome is not limited to the Social Links, mind you. It can be used throughout a your RapidWeaver site to visually enhance anything the you are working on.
Drop down menus are very popular, but with accessibility playing such an important role in good web design, Nuvem includes drop down menus while maintaining exceptional accessibility for assistive devices and technologies. This is made possible in Nuvem with sdSmartNav, and open source jQuery plugin developed for complex, multi-tiered RapidWeaver navigation systems.
