Our very own Lance Willett spoke recently at WordCamp Phoenix about the art of finding the perfect theme:
Feel free to get started by checking out our latest four themes that were added to the WordPress.org theme repository: Forever, Vertigo, Reddle, and Quintus!

On the topic of themes and customising, I have a question.
If one takes a theme as a starting point, say Twenty Twelve for example, and starts to modify and customise it, at what point could that person rename it and call it their own?
This is a somewhat subjective issue, so how about: When you feel it’s uniquely yours.
The WordPress Theme Review Team looks for “significant differences” to the original, to determine the uniqueness of a theme in its review process. I think this is a good general rule of thumb.
Thank you for your response. I’m assuming that “significant differences” would mean more than just a different style.css, but differences across all of the pages.
Also I’m really enjoying this site and the articles that are on here. I really enjoyed the “The ThemeShaper WordPress Theme Tutorial: 2nd Edition” by Ian Stewart. I was wondering if any one has thought a bout doing a more advanced tutorial that looks more advance parts of theme building i.e. creating a custom “theme options” page, add social media support, and other tips and techniques that are commonly used.
I see the clear voice here but not for the slide. Some time it to small and far in this video. So, I can read it.
Is there possible to share the presentation slide online?
Thank you very much.
Of course Pernando, you can find the slides and many more information and resources at themeshaper.com/jumpstart.
