Agency Theme

Agency Theme is a one page portfolio for companies and freelancers based on the original Bootstrap theme by David Miller. This Hugo theme features several content sections, a responsive portfolio grid with hover effects, full page portfolio item modals, a timeline, and a contact form.

NOTE: This theme is in maintenance mode!

This means no new features will be added. Syna has been created as a more flexible iteration of this theme. Consider to use it for new projects instead.

Inside the folder of your Hugo site run:

$ cd themes
$ git clone

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.

Getting started

After installing the Agency Theme successfully it requires a just a few more steps to get your site running.

The config file

Take a look inside the exampleSite folder of this theme. You'll find a file called config.toml. To use it, copy the config.toml in the root folder of your Hugo site. Feel free to change the strings in this theme.

Change the hero background

The hero acts as an eye-catcher for your site. So consider to give him a nice background. You just need to replace the header-bg.jpg at static/img with your own background image. But it's important that you keep the original filename.

Present your skills

This section should show your capabilities and skills. You can change the services at [] in the config.toml.

All icons are part of Fontawesome's icon font. Look at the website of Fontawesome for more icons. The icons are represented by their corresponding CSS class of Fontawesome. A skill is defined like this example:

      icon = "fa-shopping-cart"
      title = "E-Commerce"
      description = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Minima maxime quam architecto quo inventore harum ex magni, dicta impedit."

Create your portfolio

Beside the config.toml, there is under data another subfolder called projects which hosts the files that will appear as your projects in the portfolio section. Such a project file might look like this one written in YAML:

modalID: 1
title: Round Icons
subtitle: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur.
date: 2014-07-05
img: roundicons.png
preview: roundicons-preview.png
client: Start Bootstrap
clientLink: "#"
category: Graphic Design
description: Use this area to describe your project. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Est blanditiis dolorem culpa incidunt minus dignissimos deserunt repellat aperiam quasi sunt officia expedita beatae cupiditate, maiores repudiandae, nostrum, reiciendis facere nemo! <br><br>**Want these icons in this portfolio item sample?** You can download 60 of them for free, courtesy of [](//, or you can purchase the 1500 icon set [here](//

Copy projects inside the data folder in the root directory of your site. Let's make some changes.

Pay attention to the modalID. It must be a unique integer and be incremented with each new project you want to add to the portfolio. Otherwise, the corresponding modal can't be rendered.

Furthermore, you can use Markdown syntax for URLs like here [text](// in the description.

To give your projects an image, save those under static/img/portfolio. Don't forget to set the appropriate filename under img in your project.

Show what happened

This theme features a timeline for important events in your company or your career too. You can add a new event by copying the following snippet to the [params.about] section in the config.toml.

      img = "1.jpg"
      date = "2009-2011"
      title = "Our Humble Beginnings"
      description = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Sunt ut voluptatum eius sapiente, totam reiciendis temporibus qui quibusdam, recusandae sit vero unde, sed, incidunt et ea quo dolore laudantium consectetur!"

The image set under img needs to be stored at static/img/about. The events will be listed from the top to the bottom.

Introduce your team

Let the visitors or potential clients know who you are. To add a team member paste the code below into the config.toml. The img field refers to the shown image. Paste those of you or your colleages into static/img/team

    img = "1.jpg"
    name = "Kay Garland"
    position = "Lead Designer"
    social = [
        ["fa-twitter", "#"],
        ["fa-facebook", "#"],
        ["fa-linkedin", "#"]

As you can see there's an option to link individual social networks. The first index of the array represents the icon (or CSS class) of Fontawesome. The last index is simply the link to the social network profiles.

List your clients

You can also show some of your clients. To do so, paste the client's logos into static/img/logos and add the example below to the config.toml.

    logo = "designmodo.jpg"
    link = "#"

The logos require a dimension of 200 x 50 pixels.

Make the contact form working

Since this page will be static, you can use as proxy to send the actual email. Each month, visitors can send you up to one thousand emails without incurring extra charges. Begin the setup by following the steps below:

  1. Enter your email address under 'email' in the config.toml
  2. Upload the generated site to your server
  3. Send a dummy email yourself to confirm your account
  4. Click the confirm link in the email from
  5. You're done. Happy mailing!

Nearly finished

In order to see your site in action, run Hugo's built-in local server.

$ hugo server

Now enter localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.
