Acumen is a powerfully flexible, grid-based Magento theme. It was designed specifically for easy customization and to fit a wide range of stores. Its minimal layout puts maximum attention on products, while keeping a clean and modern aesthetic throughout. You’ll love it!
We believe transparency. It usually takes 1-3 weeks from the time Magento announces a release until GravDept publishes a compatible update. Sometimes a release overlaps a vacation/holiday/conference and it takes a little longer.
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.
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. View Acumen’s clean layouts.
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. See Acumen’s grid framework.
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. View our code practices.
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. We’re streets ahead, view the changelog.
