Hemingway / non blog style themes (5 posts)

    I'm looking for themes that are in the "general" style of "Hemingway" http://warpspire.com/hemingway
    i.e. not a very "blog like" theme.

    Ok here's why...

    I see the wordpress engine as not only a blogengine (for wich it's bloody good) but also for a simple and efficient "mini-CMS". I want my users to be able to add content in the form of dated posts, and this is simple with WP. But it also has to handle pics and flash files wich can be done with a few plugins on WP.

    Doing this on another CMS forces me to learn one of the BIG DUDES as Typo or Mambo. While I'm sure that hey are good for some, they demand that you really master the UI of the system to be able to create anything useful at all.

    On WP i was able (on the WP.com site) to whip up a simple idea of what I had i mind in just a few minutes. I could never do that on any other CMS system.

    So... Im now trying to find a "non blogish" theme that I can customize to look like I want it to. The more complete it is in it's original form the better.

    Any thoughts on this?
