If you are looking for a decent preexisting WordPress theme through which to host your portfolio it can be a pain in the ass tracking one down. Boulder-based BKW&Co put together this seriously excellent set of themes specifically for that purpose and considering the headache saved they are available at a very reasonable price. The set of themes is titled W-Portfolio and we will be utilizing one of them for our updated portfolio (although we will be slightly modifying it) when we relaunch our Changethethought.tv domain that isn’t yet active.
Alright, you asked for it so I did another search looking for well-designed WordPress themes and ran across ‘Basic Maths‘. The theme was designed by was designed and developed by Khoi Vinh of Subtraction.com and Allan Cole of fthrwght.com. This one isn’t free though. It’s available for what I think is a reasonable price of $45.00 (US).
I have been on a quest lately looking for new ideas for my WordPress theme. I am starting on redesigning the site next week and then relaunching sometime early in the year. I will soon be running on Mediatemple as well so I am excited about that. In my quest to find decent WordPress blogs I ran across a theme called Neutica that uses everyone’s favorite font Die Neue Haas Grotesk (Helvetica) to yield some really fetching results. The theme was created by Allan Cole and is available for free. You could do a lot worse for an off the shelf theme if you are thinking of starting your own blog.
