I’m adding Illdy to my list of nice looking WordPress themes. It features a one-page layout that has spots for portfolio items, testimonials, news, and more.✦
Really nice WordPress portfolio showcase system: Semplice – I’ve got a couple designer friends that I’d recommend they check this out.
Semplice is the first fully responsive case study portfolio system based on WordPress. Built by designers, for designers.

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

Do you miss the old Del.icio.us? Do you want a place to keep your links? Check out this WordPress theme: Twenty Links Twenty Links is a child theme of Twenty Ten for WordPress.

I came across this WordPress theme a couple years back. It serves one purpose: providing a place to publish your documentation. To use it, simply setup an install of WordPress, install/activate this theme, and start documenting.

Check out the introductory post on WP Tavern for more info, see the live demo at Rescue Themes, and grab a copy for yourself […]
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
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
