The drag-and-drop interface also enables you to create almost any layout possible, and will definitely appeal to those with a creative bent.
A unique and standout feature of Uplift is its animations – especially when displaying team profiles. Clicking on an individual member opens their profile in a slide-in menu; it’s certainly not something we’ve seen in many other themes.

Furthermore, the bundled Visual Composer plugin ensures a great deal of flexibility in terms of customization. We’d say that these extensive design options, coupled with the impressive-looking case study and portfolio pages, means creatives and forward-thinkers will love Foundry.
