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.
Designed by Davide “Folletto” Casali and developed by Caroline Moore, Capoverso is named after an Italian word for the indent in the first line of a paragraph. Davide describes its inspiration:
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!
