2016 is proving to be the year of WordPress Theme designs that are simpler while still offering a touch of style. This is due to mobile responsiveness and the vast number of platforms now accessing websites. I've watched the selections that clients have been making for their new projects and I thought I would share them with you (and a couple of my favs too)! Of course all our responsive!
StudioPress Clean and Professional
This site is on a StudioPress Premium theme (Agency Pro) on the Genesis Framework. To the right is the Pretty Chic Theme I'm playing with for an eCommerce WordPress Project that I'm developing in my free time.
I depend on the StudioPress code, quality and cutting edge designs that have always been on the leading edge. StudioPress is my first choice when recommending themes to clients as I have 1000% confidence that choosing to work with any of available StudioPress themes is one less thing for site owners to have to worry about.
Besides the above (lots of folks like Agency too) below are three more themes that have been quite popular so far this year. Simple responsive layout with white space that makes your content the focus.
The parallax effects will grab your eye, but it's the features and flexibility that will move your mind. Altitude Pro is a theme with a purpose, and that purpose to take you and your online business higher."
If you’re building a business around digital goods, you need a theme that will support your efforts. Digital Pro builds trust with a friendly, open feel and clean, easy-to-read typography."
You put a lot of thought and care into the spaces you style ... why should your digital presence be any different? With Interior Pro, we’ve taken care of the online staging for you so that you can effortlessly share your creative approach with the world."
All of the above Premium Responsive themes include:
- Color Styles
- Custom Background
- Custom Header
- HTML5 Markup
- Landing Page
- Mobile Responsive
- Theme Customizer
- Theme Options
- Sidebar Layout Options
- Layout Options
Elegant Themes Divi
You may have heard about Elegant Themes Divi All-in-one Theme that includes a visual page builder. It is a good theme for those committed to being a DIYer and sticking with it.
Elegant's Divi theme offers various color options for layout packs based on topic, perpetual updates and solid coding. Great support forums to find the help you may need and a theme dashboard to customize your layout.
There are other Premium WordPress Theme companies that offer more designs than the ones noted above. Check out my hand selected favorites to see what is available and what "zings" you.
I'm just sharing what I've seen clients gravitating toward and hope this helps you make your decision. For more help, read my article Choosing the Right WordPress Premium Theme so you know what to look for and think about (Hint: go through every demo with a fine tooth comb!) before making your decision.
