New Theme: Next Saturday

I’m pleased to announce our newest theme — Next Saturday. That is, the theme called “Next Saturday” launches today (not next weekend). With its rich, bright colors, three-dimensional blocks, and subtle shadows, Ian Mintz’s Next Saturday brings a touch of childlike innocence to your blog.

The Next Saturday Theme

The Next Saturday Theme

Next Saturday was designed especially with Post Formats in mind. The theme supports seven post formats — quote, aside, image, gallery, chat, audio, and video. Many of these post formats receive special styling so that they “pop” out from the rest of your content. To read all about Next Saturday’s features, stop by the Theme Showcase.

    Is there any way to change the color scheme? I like the layout, but it seems to be too chocolatey for anything but a food blog–just looking at it makes me hungry :)

    It’s good to see that theme stream flowing and I like waiting to see what’s coming next. It’s a colorful and light hearted style of theme that I think many bloggers will like. The post formats are an appealing and useful feature too.

    Excuse me! It is a very ordinary theme. I don’t like it anymore. The fonts and colors are frustrating me.

    Love the colors and the raised look of the red bar. Can we change the brown base? I think that it’d look better on a darker shade of green. I believe that the artist was thinking of a garden (with freshly turned dirt) and flowers…

      You can change the background color with the Custom Background feature. Just go to Appearance → Background in the Dashboard, and you can either set a different background color or upload a background image.

    I love the color selection! Not quite right for my blog, but I loved the themes you guys are creating.

    So many new inventive ways to present a blog. I am really happy with what I have at the moment though and what I would really like to see is a simple easy way to use a different font on my site. I would like to use chalkboard but alas it does not translate over from Word. I am not the techno whiz kid on our site and just a simple way to use other fonts would be outstanding. Thanks.

    I’m surprised it’s not called “Next Friday” seeing as Friday seems to be a huge topic lately.
    I actually really like that a lot.
    I think I would actually switch to that.
