Major Media Theme

Download Theme

This is a very simple blog style theme featuring plenty of whitespace, colorful highlites and some nice typography choices. It has a full width template like all our themes so can be used for more static style sites, but it is really intended as a theme for blogs more than anything else. Like any good theme it supports all the usual features like custom menus and widgets etc.

PinBlack Theme

Download Theme

Unashamedly inspired by Pinterest, PinBlack is a new theme which is perfect for photo and product style bogs where the posts are represented on the home and archive pages as thumbnails. The theme is responsive to browser size and will adjust accordingly. Of course it also supports custom menus and all the usual core WordPress features. Posts and static pages have a right aligned sidebar.

UPDATE 26/6/12 – An update to PinBlack was just accepted to the WordPress directory. The update fixes a problem the theme had with resizing in IE and on the iPad.

Blogist Theme

NB: This is an older theme that is no longer being regularly updated.

The Blogist theme is a personal blog theme for the blogger who likes to present a professional face. Like all our themes it is widget ready and supports custom menus. It also has a featured post slot on the home page which can be used for promoting sticky posts, or by default it will just display the latest post…a great way to ensure people see the content you really want to promote.

Archive page feature thumbnails generated automagically and the full width page template is useful for more static websites.

Newsbeat Theme

NB: This is an older theme that is no longer being regularly updated.

NewsBeat is a straight up two column blog theme with an old school newspaper aesthetic. Obviously it is widget ready, supports custom themes and has a full width template so it is still pretty flexible and can be used for static web sites as well as blogs, or combine the two. It’s free so download it and give it a whirl.

Frantic Theme

NB: This is an older theme that is no longer being regular updated.

The Frantic theme is a straight up blog style theme, with a red and grey color scheme. Like all our themes it is widget ready, supports custom menus, and comes with a full width page template. All that means it can also be used quite easily for simple static sites as well as a blog.

The home page and archive pages on the Frantic theme can also display  a featured image for each post with automatic thumb-nailing so there is no fiddly image resizing to do.

Box of Boom

NB: This is an older theme that is no longer being regular updated.

The Box of Boom WordPress theme is a 3 column ‘blog’ style theme with a strong music inspiration. We designed it orginally for a music blog called Box of Boom. The main content column is centered, the template comes with a full width template for static content pages and of course it supports custom menus, is widget ready, and you can swap out the header image for something to suit your own site, or just get rid of it altogether. Entirely up to you.

Bloggable Theme

Download Theme

NB: This is an older theme that is no longer being regularly updated.

Our Bloggable theme for WordPress is a fairly traditional blog style theme, with a contemporary look and a clear focus on the content. It’s traditional in the sense that it is a two column layout with the main content on the left and navigation on the right. Because it supports custom menus and widgets though it is reasonably flexible so can easily be used for static content sites, not just blogs. There is a full width page template included in the theme.

The typography is a nice touch, and made possible by Google hosted web fonts.

Online Marketer

Download Theme

NB: This is an older theme that is no longer being regularly updated.

The Online Marketer WordPress theme is definitely more business oriented. The design brief for this one was simple, smart, and professional. Like all our themes it comes with a full width template included for static content pages. It supports custom menus and widgets so it remains very flexible and could easily be used for a static content site, a blog, or a site incorporating both which is pretty much all sites these days. You can of course swap out the main header image for anything you like to suit your own niche.
