Our latest theme, Kiln, was inspired by pottery. With a customizable tilted logo, a quirky side scroll graphic detail, and other fun options, it’s one of Format’s most creative themes yet.

We had a look at the creators who’ve tested out Kiln already, and the results are stunning. Kiln has already been used to build some beautiful websites. We selected five of our favorites here, from some talented photographers and artists who are showing off their work online in an innovative way. Scroll down for inspiration, and try out Kiln for yourself.

James Brook

Photographer James Brook takes Kiln’s text-tilting abilities to the extreme with a jumbled up logo that gives a contemporary feel to his website. Brook’s navy blue and yellow color scheme further adds a playful look to his portfolio and also contrasts the often muted tones of his photography, which tends to focus on mundane everyday scenes and spaces. Brook organizes his menu via the titles of his photo series, making for an enigmatic navigation experience.
