Metro by Themify is a professionally done Metro-inspired theme with some nifty touches. If I had to describe the theme in one word it would be ‘slick’. Take a look at the portfolio in the demo. For starters, the portfolio items are stacked in a Masonry layout, which in my opinion is the best kind of layout for grids of images. For seconds, when you hover over each image it does a flip, 3D style. There are two portfolio layouts, two and three column. To top it all off, the portfolio pages scroll infinitely. Love it.

5. Rocket Board
