Theme Thursday: The Journalist

Ok, ok, we hear you: enough of the dark themes already.  Here’s one that should help set the universe back into balance: The Journalist by Lucian Marin.  It’s a crisp, professional, black-on-white theme designed for serious writers.  

The Journalist features a fixed-width, two-column layout, elegant typography for post text and block quotes, and supports widgets in the right-hand sidebar.  Look for it on page 4 of your Presentation / Themes tab (under “T” for “The”).

    I’m not “serious” enough to warrant it, but I might give it a test run later on.

    I like it. If REALLY minimal, why “The Author”, “The Pages”, “The Search” … and not just “Author”, “Pages”, “Search”? It would fit better with the overall structure of the page.

    Good design, look, theme there. But one thing should always be noted and kept in the core of the heart that mere look and appearance or colors may fail, unless the stuff we put/write there catches or stirs some “FIRE” there. Thanks.

    I like it but i can’t find a theme that fit ny needs. I wish a theme clear and wide like “the journalist” but with 2 features that i like from Kubrick:
    1. Image Header
    2. If i post a picture in kubrik it will be resized (only the view) to fit the column, instead the other themes don’t resize it and the picture go over the sidebar.

    I think I want a wide kubrick… :-) but this “journalist” is very nice and if it had the 2 features above i’ll use.
