The Rainier theme is a beautiful 3rd party Genesis Framework theme created for any niche. This News Theme has a minimal look but more than makes up for it with nice features. On the homepage, a sticky menu bar is included and aligned to the right of the menu bar is a place for social media profile links. They are in a good location because of the sticky menu bar; This helps get you more followers over time. Below this menu bar, you have the logo image centered, you can use either a text logo or upload an image logo. I recommend going with an image; Logo Nerds is one place to get a professional logo created at an affordable price.
