Torola is a great template for creatives. It’s a single page template that offers a vast amount of templates to highlight your work. We really like the masonry cards, portfolio grid, split, modular, and reveal layouts in particular. One of the things that you often come across with many templates is that the layouts are very similar and follow a particular trend.
Torola is a huge departure from the status quo. All of the layouts are vastly different from each other. As a result, you won’t have to deal a situation where your layout looks and functions similarly to all the other creatives. Aside from the layouts, there are plenty of features including the slideshows, lightbox, video homepages, and more. It’s an HTML5 template that’s easy to add to your web hosting server.
