Acumen is a flexible, grid-based Magento theme. The sparse coloration and ornaments draw maximum attention to products, while keeping a clean and modern aesthetic throughout.
#1. Quality Over Quantity
We focused on what matters: primary navigation, deep linking home page, manageable featured products, and seamless interaction. Still looking for color variations? Acumen supports over 65,000 via CSS . Acumen’s intelligent features are so natural, you’ll have to pay attention to notice them.
#2. Better Design
Acumen was made for clarity and organization. We shook up the visual hierarchy to highlight the most important information and removed the clutter. The result was beautiful catalog and product pages with prominent photography. Both checkout modes were streamlined for simplicity.
#3. True Grid System
While other themes claim to implement grids like 960.gs, they don’t. Look at the markup for proof. Every template in Acumen was stripped of Magento’s structural markup and replaced with our flexible grid.
#4. Better Code
We followed Magento and Zend best practices when writing Acumen from theme fallback hierarchy to fully supporting multi-language translation. Every modification is annotated with comments, and the every frontend template’s markup was scrubbed for improved semantics and accessibility. That’s SEO gold.
#5. Better Performance
#6. Rigorous Updates
Acumen was a launch theme for the Magento category, and it has the most active development history. We’ve supported every stable Magento version with a full compatibility release (usually in ~1 week). Other themes are still multiple Magento versions behind.
#7. Amazing Support
Read through the comments. We answer every question and problem within 24 hours, often much faster than that. We don’t ignore customers or bugs, and include a comprehensive Magento/Acumen installation guide with suggestions for server selection and store configuration settings to help you go live.
