This is the first theme we have released that was built with SASS and Compass, tools we have become fond of using on other projects. The theme also comes with a bag load of new elements to spruce up your content including things like tabs, toggles, icon fonts and all the usual buttons. It is of course responsive and uses a grid based off the 1140 grid that we have used on several of our themes.
It even has some fancy graph elements for building content with an info-graphic flavour. These elements are built on top of on bar-graphs and Easy PieChart, providing a neat little shortcode to add a fancy graph you your page.
