New Theme: Inuit Types

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.

    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.

    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!).

    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.

    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.

    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).
