WordPress Themes

We’re just going to come right out and say it, Themes are the fun part of WordPress site development. Let’s face it, looking at a ton of sites, browsing through designs, allowing all of that inspiration to drive your ideas? That’s fun. And when we become partners in the development of your website or blog, this is the part we like you to do.

Themes are what give your site its “look.” There are thousands of free themes out there (this site is built on a free theme as an example) as well as thousands more you pay for. The difference often comes with complexity of design, “cool” features and, most importantly, a solid support team behind it.

PARTNER THEMES:

I’m a developer affiliate with a couple of incredible WordPress theme sites. For the most part, my sites begin with the Genesis ThemesWordPress framework or the Elegant Themes collection.

Studio Press is the creator of the Genesis Framework. If your website was a car (work with me here) then Genesis would be your “chassis.” On top of that chassis we would bolt on a body, or in this case a “Theme,” the way your site looks. Studio Press creates incredibly functional, beautiful themes that are mobile-ready, SEO tuned and highly customizable.

I’m also a developer affiliate with Elegant Themes, a highly-regarded team of theme developers providing people like us a beautiful starting point already geared toward your need. As a result of our affiliation with Elegant Themes, all of their themes are available to you, free of charge. SO, bonus, right? Free theme for you AND a solid support team to rely on. Win-win.

FREE THEMES:

We love a lot of free themes, like these, for instance (just a few ideas):

Business:

Simple Corp by Site5. Highly useful for simple business sites. I can get you up and running in short order for low cost.

Responsive by ThemeID. The most downloaded free theme on the internet.

Origin by AlienWP

Portfolio/Art:

Darwin by PixelThemes

Portfolio Press by Devin Price

BUT AGAIN, I SAY, FOR HIGH-QUALITY PREMIUM THEMES:

Look no further than Studio Press. Fantastic designs, outstanding framework and ultra-flexible.
