Win a Premium ‘Left Handed’ Theme from Obox

Read the full post

For years the guys from Obox Design have always wanted to create beautiful website templates which are dynamic and customizable. Over the last 30 days they put these thoughts into motion. With a lot of stress, coffee and lack of sleep they are now ready to launch the Obox Signature Series, a collection of Premium WordPress themes.

To celebrate the launch of their new Premium Theme collection the ‘Obox Signature Series’, Line25 is holding a competition by giving away 2 copies of their new ‘Left Handed’ theme.

Left Handed:

Left Handed is a hand drawn theme and is perfect for those who have an art orientated blog and don’t want to be left in the field with just another blog template. This theme will impress your readers with its attention to detail in the custom hand drawn fonts and a really cool threaded comment section.

This theme also includes three color options, Blue/Black and Red/Black and Army Green/Black. You will also receive a copy of the hand drawn font layer file that we created for the logo and sidebar headers.

  • Chris Martin

    I love that it is hand-drawn! I’m designing a art realated blog and a hand-drawn theme (espically “Left-Handed”) would look very good. Other great parts are the threaded comments and your attention to detial in this theme.

  • Mathan Vibranarayanan

    Hello there,

    Firstly i would like to thank you for bringing such innovative ideas in this virtual world, and Left Handed is one among the the awesome themes i admired, even if am not winning this competition i would like to thank this team for developing such a concept which am right now trying for a good cause. Am sponsoring a website for mentally retarded children at my place, i believe this theme would suit their talent and work as their art works looks the same, even if they draw in right hand.

    Good day,

    Mathan Vibranarayanan

  • Shanna Korby

    I like the hand drawn look.

  • Ryan

    Best part = Custom font! How can you beat that? It’s like buying a car and getting a free motorcycle.

  • SE7ENize

    I really like the design of the comment section. AJAX commenting and threaded comments are awesome.

  • Yötua

    Awesome design, love it and wish to see these jQuery effects

  • Marie H.

    Love the footer! Thanks for the contest.

  • Abdullah Al Mamun


  • eXo

    Cool pencil-like line thats looks very neat. Background that match the hand-draw style. Three column info about the owner is completely brilliant. And cute icon match the style. Awesomeness is totally fulfill!

  • carlatbushwood

    the feel of the page is very artsy, which is nice. i particularly like the “chalk” look of the lines. if it were my site i would like to see it less cluttered. while it is not extremely cluttered, i resonate with simplicity. lots of inspiration here.

  • bebopdesigner

    This theme is brilliant. I love the hand drawn style. Really really refreshing. Good luck everybody!

  • zuba

    my favorite part is the use of 3d illustration to emphasize certain parts of the page, ie the menu

  • Chris Loringer

    that footer is awesome, and the color combos are great too

  • celso Hernandez

    originality love the footer

  • Andy Feliciotti

    I love the draw effects of the comments

  • Adrian

    Hmm. Where to begin. It’s unique, easy on the eye, fun and full of functionality. Thanks! *I’m this close to buying it anyhow;

  • formlotse

    I love the handdrawn style of Left handed and OCMX-Live integrates a lot of cool features into this theme!

  • larsi

    OCMX-Live seems to make live so much easier and the handdrawn style looks awesome! *must win

  • Tomb

    More themes should look like this. The new trend of less is more just dos’nt fit me. I love great grunge looking themes. And this theme takes it abit futher. With the handdrawn element and that UFO logo in the corner.

    Gez, I better look up all the other Obox themes and see if they are also as awesome.

  • Chris

    I really like that it’s so different that so many other blogs.

  • Digitaluscious

    Beautiful template! I love the illustrated look and the hand drawn fonts.

  • Rebornmx

    I love the borders and the whole content distribution, it feels so ordered and clean

  • Shannon Farrell

    Love every part of this theme so I was excited to see that we are given a chance to win it! I always love the handwritten/illustrative style.

  • Ray Keys

    I think it’s got what the web is missing (or at least craving), that DIY aspect of illustration. I’m writing an article called ‘The hand drawn web’ and would like to include a bit about this theme.

    I wonder if the designer(s) of this theme really are left handed? Or is this just a nod to the cliché – the left handed artist?

    I don’t know. I like it; would also like to see it on a light background as well. Good work and good instincts. Cheers from Shoreditch, east London, Ray K.

  • Sonny Gill

    Definitely digging the look of threaded comments the best. Done in a cool but still clean way.
