Inuit Types is one of the sharpest looking themes around and I’m excited to let you know that today it’s now available on WordPress.com. Let’s take a look at what it has to offer—including the alternate dark color scheme.
The image above highlights the optional featured posts (available from Appearance->Theme Settings) that take advantage of the new Post Thumbnail module available from your Edit Post page when using the Inuit Types theme.
Inuit Types features a clean drop-down menu with lots of room for multiple pages.
And now, a look at the front page intro widget area—a great place to add an extended introduction to your blog.
There’s a lot of really cool details in Inuit Types—things like full-width image attachment pages or the custom default avatar image for comments—but the thing I think you’ll be most excited about are the layout options and alternate color schemes available from Appearance->Theme Settings.
Here I’ve set up my Inuit Types demo blog with the included dark color scheme and full width featured posts. I’ve also chosen to display the sidebar on the left side of my content. Check it out.
Pretty cool, huh? And—besides looking great—the dark color scheme is one of the most readable I’ve ever seen; I love it. I’m pretty excited about Inuit Types. I hope you will be too.
Inuit Types is available in your WordPress.com dashboard and, for WordPress.org users, in the WordPress.org themes directory.

Looks pretty cool and rich. :)
Wow! It really looks legible and is reminiscent of the current one that I use. Thanks very much for this theme inclusion! You guys are great!
nice,but iwant a three column theme.can i change this in any color besides black or white?
I love it! Very professional-looking, gorgeous design!
Looks like it showcases photos nicely!
I like the sharp contrast! =)
Very classy and beautiful- like me! Just Joking…
I love the drop-down menus and the clean look on the pages. The way the widgets are displayed add a very organized look to the theme. I think the black color makes this a good theme for bloggers with a lot of pictures, black really helps the pictures “pop”.
Keep up the good work WordPress.
Okay, I just got truly, genuinely excited about a blog theme. Sweet look, and I’m likin’ the features. The front page text widget, dual columns and drop-downs are three things I’ve wanted to see in combination for awhile.
sweet, not ready for a change yet but I’m loving all the new themes that are rolling out and looking forward to seeing more and more
Great theme! So clean and fresh!
Please put new theme announcements on its own email thread. Most of the time most of us are not shopping for new themes. The transition is too difficult (which is in itself a problem, no doubt to be solved by WordPress in a future iteration!).
Very, very nice in the Dark Theme esp. for photos. Really sets ‘em off beautifully. Thanks for keeping ‘em coming!
I’m visually challenged and I can read the font on this black background theme that has so many handy features. Only one thing disappoints me. The size of the font in the blog title is so large that it does not accommodate my blog title. :( Aside from that I do like the theme very much. Thank you for this addition.
Finally, a good magazine-style theme for WordPress.com users! Thank you.
I will change to INUIT asap.
very great theme.. I’m gonna try it,. l wonder if it fits on my photoblog with some text too,, thanx…
A theme with a dark alter-ego! Fun concept. I particularly like the small box-sized blog abstracts, they look very inviting for further reading. Could definitely make a very slick, interesting page using this. Thanks!
That’s really plush…I might use it on my blog :)
Beautifully modernistic. Would definitely be my second choice if I ever do get tired of mine (not likely, but I’ve mercurial behaviour and tastes).
Very nice theme. Plain, simple and effective.
Oooh. Looks awesome (and I speak as an Englishman, not usually given to superlatives). The only problem I can see is that everyone will be using it… :-)
Score 1 for the Theme Team! Love this clean theme.
this theme is awesome. I use it now on my blog. Thanks ian :)
Nice… I especially like the striking black look and the drop-down menu for multiple pages.
I’ll check it out when I have time….seems more masculine and classy than my current one…plus it gives me more creative options…
Going to try it right now. I really hope the post column width is 640px or more. A lot of your themes have such thin column widths…
This is the nicest theme I have seen on here. I love Vigilance as well, but this one is pretty neat. No custom header though. Oh well, I managed before and can do so again. Thanks so much!
Very nice! I love the font, the white, the flexibility, the elegance. Will give this one a whirl. Thank you oh wonderful WordPress!
Looks nice on the preview. Might try when tonight.
so cool, i like the colour and the position of the text
I love it! Looks really professional. I might have to change the theme, again. :)
The idea with two column in the post area is very nice. but looks clumsy if the posts don’t have any images as you have shown in preview. also if the blog has long header text… it looks horrible
The dark color theme looks truly great; but the sidebar color in white color theme is exactly opposite to base color which makes it strike the viewers’ eyes more than the content area, a lighter shade of grey would have been better to balance the contrast.
Wow. . nice!
This is a very versatile theme! I’m lovin’ it! I might even try it out later…
That’s very nice. I will give it a preview. You guys never rest, do you? thanks!
very Kawaii <3 i love it
Great theme nice looks and great customizations too.
Looks awesome. I would like to try it soon.
Beautiful, sleek and clean. I’m still waiting for one with custom headers though.
really nice! very tempting! congrats on another excellent theme, wordpress!
Looks okay… good work, keep it up. I would love to see more themes for a photoblog. ;)
Yes I agree , cool and clear for my style.
i love this.. thanks guys. will use it pretty soon!
I’m going to try it out right now!
Wow! I like it!
Does it have two child columns in article column ?, if so….. just great
Uh this looks very cool. Nice and clean. Thanks;)
A very classy-looking theme, definitely readable, and with a large, bold, confident font for the headings. I particularly like that it uses more of the width of the screen. I also like the option of using post thumbnails. Well done.
Very cool theme… :)
awesome, but not enough color…
I like the customization.
I love it! I’m sticking with journalist v1.3 because it shows full posts in tag and category overviews, but I’m hella-jealous of this beautiful new theme!
Beautiful and, indeed, very flexible. Thanks! :)
the dark theme is more appealing.
i will try this theme soon :)
I love the flexibility, especially the two columns and the option of “featured posts” that run across both columns. If these features are combined with a custom image header, I’ll be sure to switch.
love it, best new theme ive seen since joining wordpress :)
I’ve always liked the black background; I’m utilizing the “Black – LetterHead theme currently. Love the twin columns here, along with the full width ‘top blog’. The drop-down menus have a ton of potential.
Absolutely great. People have been wanting another great dark background. Keep up the excellent work. I keep getting people I know to use WordPress instead of the other less wonderful platforms.
This is the best theme of the lot, excellent and professional setup. I think i would be using this theme in near future
Very nice theme, good work
wow! i loved it! the best <3!
I will use it for now but just wish the writing (blog) area were a trifle wider. Say 720 pixels? I am not keen on 3 column themes this one is more like it but just not wide enough. sigh.
Nice, lovely theme… Thanks
Thanks for the new theme but I find it a bit hard with thumbnails. I want to say that Titan is one of the best themes ever.
Thanks for all updates!
Theme team seems to be working out a lot… :-)
can i suggest designs???
AWESOME! The Theme Team rocks!! :D
I will definitely consider switching to this theme!! I love how you can have an introduction to the blog right on the front page!
Thanks,I love new themes :!:
This is cool. I’ll try it :)
ohh it’s wonderful, i must try it
Wou … I really loved this beautiful, very interesting to visit
Great work, nice layout.
Nice features…very good!
i like it..good work.. thanks
And this just gets more awesomer (it’s not a word, but it should be just for this theme.) Matter of fact that sounds like theme name. (yeah, you can borrow it.)
I love the two colum wide features and knowing i can change colors wonderful.
Plus the feature tab is cool too.
a really neat new option- I hope we start seeing even more highly customizable themes!
Ready for (and working on) the change! Great features. Thx.
six color schemes – inuit is impressive
Every time I think I’m happy with how my blog looks, you give me new options. It’s hard to find the time to play with it, but don’t stop!
This does look pretty sharp. I’d love to include a background image or texture as opposed to flat black, though. Something like rough paper, clouds, diamondplate, dust, etc.
I say this as someone who uses a dark theme, with a colored background (that I customized for width.)
I’ve given it a whirl and there is SO much I like about this theme…but I don’t like the heavy black-sidebar on the white background and would SO much love it if this very same theme had the option of a white sidebar with the same text font (black)….in other words, super simplicity.
Other than that, the font is so elegant, drop down menus awesome, the column flexibility and left/ride sidebar flexibility, the intro box, the extra page templates…well I could go on and on. It’s a gorgeous, professional theme.
Thank you dream team (ooops Theme Team).
Nice use of both base colors… the menu bar is too nice.
Cool! – but I don’t really understand the name. The Inuit are the indigenous people of the arctic – Greenland, Canada and parts of northern Russia – what is the relation to these Inuit Types?
How in the world do you make a post “featured” ?
Or does it default to your last post?
The more the merrier. Good work theme team.
