WordPress Theme Roundup: 2 for Writers, 1 for Business

Today I happened to be browsing through the WordPress Theme directory, and I came across three themes I just had to share:

Kent

Kent is reminiscent of the early days of Medium. It features a clean layout, nice typography, and an overall design that makes me want to crank out a couple of new posts.

Dyad

Dyad‘s excellent pairing of images and content makes the foodie in me want to start a new food blog. If you have words and pictures to go with them, it provides a great pairing.

Emmet

Emmet is a clean business oriented theme. Check out the preview provided by MotoPress. I love how this theme has a lot of design patterns and visual features without seeming cluttered. It’s big and bold with just the right amount of whitespace.

Layers – WordPress Site Builder

Layers, a new WordPress Site Builder Theme, was announced by Obox Themes last week. I downloaded Layers on Friday, and having only used it a bit, I’m already extremely impressed.

The Layers interface works through the WordPress Customizer, so it looks, feels, and works like an extension of WordPress. What’s more, the Obox team has released their source code so that anyone can extend and contribute to Layers. I see a lot of potential with this project as it’s looking to “play well” within the overall WordPress community.

By removing endless design options and features, Layers provides you with just enough choice to create a beautiful site while still maintaining the fundamentals of good design. ~ Layers – WordPress Site Builder

X Theme Showcase & Example Sites – (Updated Weekly)

I’ve mentioned the WordPress X Theme on here before. It’s a WordPress theme with limitless design options and loads of potential. This past week I was browsing Theme.co‘s site and I found this nice Showcase of X Theme sites in the real world. Even better than seeing Theme.co’s demo of X is seeing it used to great effect by real bloggers and companies. My hats off to the Theme.co crew for building a very versitile theme.

From .com – .gov, check out just a sample of the thousands of X-powered sites and discover the incredible versatility of this ultimate WordPress theme. ~ X Theme Showcase
