Ex Libris

Ex Libris was designed for writers and typophiles. Lacking fancy graphical bells and whistles, we focused our attention, instead, on making your content readable with full typographic control. Ex Libris features a unique approach to choosing the typography for your site. Rather than relying on the tired basic web fonts, we’ve embedded the gorgeous free fonts from font foundry exljbris, giving you freedom to style your site with access to full font families and unique typefaces, while maintaining a consistent visual style. We’ve also built the theme with a unique, optional home page layout (Magazine Style, pictured above), and kept an uncluttered approach to page layouts.

If you’re a writer, if you love minimalism, clean design and unique typography, Ex Libris was made for you. Literally.

3.0 Basics

This WordPress 3.0 based theme is a free theme that is the perfect starting point for theme developers making a new theme. It has many common features used by plugins built-in as well as a pre-made custom post type that allows you to build a site where you or your users can post links to your favorite sites, which will automatically generate a screenshot image of the website to be displayed on the page.

Hybrid Core

Hybrid Core is a WordPress theme development framework for creating solid parent themes. It allows theme developers to forget about all the complex functionality and dive straight into coding their theme’s HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

This framework’s code is completely free and open source. You can use it for creating publicly-downloadable themes, client work, or even a commercial theme business.

eScape

eScape is business or portfolio type theme built on xScape Theme Framework. This is first theme to use new concept in xScape: creating a independent front page. Front page for eScape has slider with portfolio (or featured) posts, 3 static pages bellow and a widgetized footer. Main footer supports adding of menu or sitemap based menu.

eScape has additional portfolio template that is made to work with some lightbox plugin for displaying portfolio items (not necessary, but looks nice). And in the same time template displays the post title and meta allowing you to access full post, not only image assigned to it.

Theme has 10 color schemes, each one with 2 styles, one including background image and one without it. Image is located on the top half and blends in main background color. Without that image, theme is really lightweight and very fast.

Color Garden

Color Garden is a free theme released on Museum Themes under the GPLv3. This theme is jam-packed with features, from WordPress 3.0 functionality to Twitter integration. Color Garden uses WP3.0′s custom header option, and comes with 4 unique headers that accent the 4 color palette options available on the theme options page. We’ve also built in custom menus, custom backgrounds, and post thumbnails, hitting all the bases for cutting-edge WordPress functionality. If you use Twitter, we’ve got you covered there, too, integrating Twitter’s new Tweet button into our existing social sharing block on single post pages and providing options to display your latest tweets in the sidebar or the footer. The footer and sidebar are completely widgetized, and the footer has three distinct columns to add widgets. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve embedded a custom typeface in the header using CSS font-face. Each color palette has its own unique stylesheet, so you can easily use this theme as a framework or build child themes (or skins) for it.

newsScape

newsScape is the xScape based theme that is made for news or general blog websites. But, due to amount of features you can set, this theme can be made to be used for many different things.

newsScape is released with 12 base color styles. One color is changed with each style, and that one color can be set through control panel to generate new style. Theme also can utilize font settings for the theme including font family and font sizes. For front page you can use 2 different layouts: news and standard (archive like). For single post and page layouts there are also 2 layouts available, one of them showing the meta block on the left side of the post and that can be useful if you have many things to show there.
