Customer Testimonials:

Bought this theme the other day. Just want to let everyone know that not only is this one good looking theme (not so many quality D7 themes out there, as you probably know), but it’s really well thought out, is true responsive, complies completely with HTML5 and CSS3, and – bonus – the author is really communicative and quick to help out with any theme-related issue. Documentation is way above par, too. Keep rolling out new themes, Refaktor! D7 users need you!
