I'm trying setup my Tumblr with a theme or template that will give me a super simple layout with only a few pieces of information displayed. I'm basically looking to recreate something similar to this ad agency site:

This would be super simple to just do in HTML, but I want to add a blog loop to the home page in a few months so I'd like to set up the Tumblr backend now.

Any ideas how I go about doing this?

With a little tinkering to personalize and simplify to your personal disgression, the Linear theme by Peter Vidani makes a very simple, clean aesthetic.

A tumblr theme is just plain HTML with some variables. So just stick the HTML page you want as the theme and tumblr will display it for you.
