photoScape

Second xScape based WordPress theme is photoScape. It has clean and simple block design and is based on only 4 colors. It has 12 default styles built in, each one using only 4 colors and some of them with background images, some without. First idea for usage of the theme is for photography based website and that’s why default thumbnails displayed are larger than it’s usual, making them dominant on the page.

As usual, theme has a BluePrint CSS behind it’s layout and is fully valid with both CSS 2.1 and XHTML 1.0. During the development of this theme, new module for xScape has been made for adding Google Maps into posts, and it’s also now standard element of the framework. To see what else is built in, check out links on the left for theme specific features, and also full framework features.

Middle Name: Danger

Middle Name: Danger is the brother to Baby SweetTooth. It’s got the same magazine-style layout and multiple widgetized sidebars with optional video embed and FeedBurner integration. In fact, everything cool about Baby SweetTooth is there in Middle Name: Danger, the only difference is the boy colors vs. the pink and brown in SweetTooth. Whereas Baby SweetTooth was a re-release, we never released Middle Name: Danger because we were waiting to work out the bugs of SweetTooth. Now that we have, we can release both, side-by-side, as they were meant to be, so you can be set for your baby girl’s blog or your baby boy’s blog (or both!).

Arras-Theme

A stalwart of a magazine theme. Versatile and good looking.

Time Capsule

This theme celebrates artistry, exhibiting an antique frame, touchable fabric texture and hand-drawn stitching highlights. It has a rich, strong approach displaying soft colors, realistic textures which come together to make an unforgettable playful and unique finish.

This alluring theme’s colors and sensibility make it an ideal to use with a personal or creative website. It is rich with widgets and comes with two delicious color palettes, a dusky rosé and a pale powder blue to fit any season or mood.

Simple Gray

Simple Gray is a minimalist WordPress theme we did a couple years ago. Having not touched it once in over a year, with the launch of Museum Themes, we figured it was time to revisit it. We’ll be revamping all our old free themes and officially releasing some of the ones we never got around to. Added features to Simple Gray are Twitter @anywhere hovercards, WordPress 3.0 menus, installation notes, Google’s Droid Sans web font, and some nice css3 shadows for browsers that can see them.

Erin’s sketchbook

erin’s sketchbook is a minimal WordPress theme we built for ourselves a couple years ago. It’s designed to be a good theme for art or photography, using a black background and minimal design to draw attention to the art or photography. It was based on another theme we did before that, Simple Black which, like Simple Gray, was a minimalist blog theme based around Kubrik. Since the two were closely related, we combined them, offering a theme options page to choose which style you prefer. We also added Twitter @anywhere hovercards, WordPress 3.0 menus, installation notes, and Google’s Droid Sans web font.

Museum zine

AP Museum zine is a unique magazine-style WordPress theme suite with 3 distinct skins, custom font calls, social networking integration, full advertising integration, a total of 9 interchangeable background wallpapers, and widgetized sidebar and footer boxes. It’s Dynamic Content Gallery-ready, meaning that if you install and set up Studiograsshopper’s DCG plugin, the code is already built-in to integrate it into the site with notes in the backend for optimal DCG width. zine now has font controls, allowing you to choose what fonts you want to use for the text of the site, or, optionally, customize or turn off the custom fonts embedded in the 3 skins. AP Museum zine is named for the underground fanzine movement of the 90s and early 2000s, and takes its grunge style from the handmade, xeroxed ‘zines that defined the ‘zine scene.

WordPress Child Theme for Twenty Ten: Accessible 1.0

WordPress 3.0 came out with a new default theme: Twenty Ten. The theme is compared to Kubrick an improvement, but still has mostly the same accessibility issues as its forerunner, e.g. not enough contrast in colors, few improvements for keyboard users and you get no real information about user’s location within a web page.

This is where Accessible 1.0 get’s into: a child theme for the default theme Twenty Ten to get the parent theme more accessible. You get all functionality of Twenty Ten plus accessible features of the child theme. That’s a nice deal. :)
