Communication Site: Themes and and branding options missing
The current communication site template cannot be used for corporate wide communication because there are some important things missing.
The overall design is only able to speak and represent only the Microsofot CI/CD. The missing branding and theming options makes it hard to be used in corporates because there is currently no way to apply corporate communication and design guidelines to the page. For user it makes it hard to identify the page as an official communication channel by the company and not by Microsoft.
In addition not even well known and supported customisations through Themes is possible at the moment to change the look and feel. Changes in themes does not reflect in the communication site at all.
Overall it is hard to sell the communication site to marketing and CEO from a customer prespective. Right now the only valid option to establish communication channels at customers is through the classical publishing features (with not such a fancy page creation) or through classical blogs.
A number of theming updates have been rolled out this year – and the branding updates we shared at Ignite 2018 will be rolling out to Targeted Release later this month. We’re going to resolve this suggestion and ask that you create new suggestion(s) for specific branding settings/asks. Thank you!

Agreed with Stephan, I was hoping for a real modern publishing site and communication site isn't doing it.
