10 Cool WordPress themes


One of the many reasons why WordPress is such a super publishing platform are the many themes which are freely available to give your site a professional look and feel.

1. Envy – WPDesigner.com

Envy theme

Envy is a bold and bright theme with plenty of different elements to help you personalise it.

2. Insense – BloggingPro.com


Insense is a really classy, professional looking theme, which is just as useful for putting together a WP powered static site as it is a blog.

3. PhotoPress – Performancing


Perfect for photo or video based blogs.

4. Elite – WPZone.net


Smart, darker theme. Sometimes themes with a black background can cause problems when inserting images – especially those with a transparent background. But Elite is still pretty smart looking.

5. Illacrimo – LifeSpy.com


Again, very professional looking, and the one I’ve used a few times in the past.

6. Bluvision – lucianmarin.com


A bit like Envy, in that it has lots of space for you to personalise your site’s appearance.

7. Simpla – Ifelse.org


Nice, clean look – perfect for a personal blog.

8. Glossyblue – NDesign Studio


Glossyblue is a theme I used to use on LGNewMedia. It’s really rather lovely. I notice Tim Davies uses it for his Drupal-based blog.

9. Gridlock – Hyalineskies.com


Gridlock is a perfect theme for non-blog WordPress sites.

10. MistyBlue – Romow


The theme I used for FEconnect, and I stil have a soft spot for it ;-)
