Two new free themes from Automattic are now available at WordPress.org.
Long a popular business theme over at WordPress.com, Motif now makes its debut in the WordPress.org directory. A fork of Okay Themes’ Paradigm theme, Motif was completely overhauled by Frank Klein on both the design and code fronts, resulting in a responsive theme well suited to companies and organizations looking for a professional and contemporary web presence.
Capoverso was born as a minimalist typographic theme that could be massively customized with just a couple of images, allowing the expression of the author’s personality in a rich yet simple way. This shows at its best on the homepage: a full-screen image that has large text and the main navigation beneath. Just a couple of tweaks and it’s really your theme.
Two themes, two distinctive personalities: enjoy Motif and Capoverso!
Discover Intergalactic, a new free theme designed by Mel Choyce and developed by Caroline Moore. With prominent featured images, high-contrast typography, and a slide-out side panel for menu and widgets, Intergalactic makes a bold statement while keeping the focus on your images and text. Download it from the WordPress.org directory or explore the demo.
“Penscratch was inspired by a similar portfolio theme, Sketch, which I designed for visual art. I wanted a clean, minimalist theme with a similar look and feel, but tailored to writers.”
A trio of themes from Automattic designers has launched in the WordPress.org Theme Directory.
All three themes are responsive, and look gorgeous on devices both small and large.
Kelly, a colorful personal-blogging theme designed by Automattic’s Kelly Hoffman, is now available for download from the WordPress.org Theme Directory. Here’s how Kelly explains the creative inspiration for her namesake:
I really wanted to keep it simple but fun, which is why I went with bold splashes of color and large type. I went with the complementary color palate of reddish orange and green as a fun reference to my red hair and green eyes.
