  2. Freebie Magz says:

    Great list but I think X and The7 should be on the list as well.

  3. Shakil says:

    I really can’t find any common thing among these themes. But As I can see, flat design is getting more popular.

  4. Tia says:

    WordPress is the best solution for editorial websites. These designs are plainfully awesome. Keep up the good work !!

  5. Alex Bailey says:

    Really love “salient” , I’ve noticed its quite a complex theme though and does use a lot of memory for even loading up, but its such a great theme and i’m sure you can slim it down if needed.

  6. Thanks a lot for sharing!

  7. froyo says:

    hey! that is so cool! tanx for sharing

  8. Cathy Mayhue says:

    Thanks Chris for sharing these beautiful designs. I would also recommend a very amazing theme recently launched by WPDev called Upfront. It is going to dramatically change how we build and design our wordpress website.

  9. IMH says:

    Simply awesome

  10. Courtney says:

    These are awesome! I love the minimalism some of these have and theres a lot of similar palettes across the board. Overall, great list :)

  11. Web Dizajn says:

    Awesome WordPress themes. WordPress is the one of greatest tools for editorial websites.

  12. Addy says:

    A great list of awesome WordPress themes. Jupiter and Salient are my favourite ones from the above list. I have used both of them in my projects.

  13. Kristina Hughes says:

    Nice showcase! These are such a great design examples of professionals… Clean and attractive..

  14. thanks alot , amazing post

  15. Wow!! All the themes are really cool. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Phil Smears says:

    Some pretty amazing designs there and some of these themes represent amazing value for money. What worries me though is this approach of starting with a design and then shoehorning your content into it – it can lead to website for a plumber that looks like Vogue.

  17. Hyder says:

    It’s commendable that there are so many talented designers out there making themes and templates for WordPress.

    I think there has to be a distinction between a ‘web designer’ and a ‘template designer’ though. Most of the themes on these marketplaces are done by template designers, as they have to stay within a certain type of structure in order to sell the same theme over and over again.

    As you scroll down the screenshots you can clearly see what I’m talking about.
