illuminate by xenfocus

illuminate is a minimal, modern theme for xenforo 2. A compact, dark header neatly contains your logo, navigation, a fluid search bar and user icons - while your main content is placed on a simple background for easy reading. Categories can be styled with their own unique colour scheme which is especially great for sports teams, brands, games or movies.

What can I say, Ehren's support and quality of styles is top notch. He's one of the most popular ones on Invision, and I'm glad he has found his way to the xenforo market. We are currently using Illuminate at https://www.rpnation.com as our Light style with some minor modifications. Regardless of the question or request, I've made. The quality I've come to expect from this designer on other platforms is present here and then some. Give him a chance, you won't regret it.

His styles have a certain simplicity and lack of bloat while just having the perfect amount of features that other designers should follow.

My only wish was that there was a Illuminate dark style for sale.

What a solid review - thanks for the feedback! I always aim to reduce bloat and clutter whenever possible so I'm glad you're a fan of that approach too!
We use this theme on Dynamik. We all love it and the flexibility is great. Also we've wanted to change a little thing to the style and with fast support from Ehren on his Support forum we managed to do it very quickly !
