I love this theme. It's sleek and modern, really contemporary. It already includes many standard features, and I hope many more will be added. I needed some help with a style and Piotr responded very quickly and accurately. His solution worked perfectly! I will be switching more of my clients to this theme. Thank you, Piotr!
