Hi Guys,

Here is a sleek, clean, black and green theme called Avocado (work in progress).

http://www.flowstack.com/themes/magento/

I hope it will be the first of many from me.

If you have suggestions to improve it, let me know.

Thanks,

Ed

The overall feel is nice and clean. There is just something in two colum layouts I really like. The color scheme is awesome and overall a good implimentation.
However this theme falls flat in my opinion when it comes to the layerd navigation. I am using a wide screen monitor so this may have something to do with it. However I don’t actually see any products above the fold line. I have to scroll to see the products in there categories which is never a good thing. I would try and reduce the amount of white space around that.

Thanks for the comments, James.

So you are saying the layered navigation is taking up to much space and pushing the products down the page?

I think you are right, especially when a category heading image is present. I plan to make these much slimmer, which will help. I’ll see what else I can do.

Cheers,

Ed

Ed, that is exaclty what i am saying smile although the site feels nice. Another small point, the search looks a little in the wild currently. But its looking very good altogether.

Hmmm, I can’t help but feel that the right column is so large that it overpowers everything else.  No matter how much I try to look at the main content I get distracted by it.  Maybe shrink it some?
