EDGE Summer Contest 2011

The particular thing about this template is that you can build endless multi-layered grids with little and no effort even by mixing different kinds of media together and all this with deeplinking! It allows you even to create simple stacks with different angles and transitions. 3D Grid XML Template fits…

It offers a two level deeplinking menu and several modules like the showroom, a complete media gallery, the staff module, the contact form and much more. One special feature worth to be mentioned is the unique page transition which allows you to create different transitions as you like.
