To see just how powerful Custom Design is, take a look at this diverse collection of sites that are all using the exact same theme:
These all have a completely different look and feel because each site makes use of the many customization options that the Twenty Eleven theme offers. Adding the Custom Design upgrade, which is compatible with all WordPress.com themes, takes personalization to the next level by allowing you to choose from over 50 gorgeous Typekit fonts to use for your site’s title, headings, and body text.
Additionally, if you’re familiar with CSS, Custom Design enables you to customize your colors, borders, backgrounds, and even the layout of your blog.
Best of all, you can try before you buy. Head to Appearance → Custom Design in your dashboard to test out Custom Design right now.
Find details and CSS resources in the Custom Design support document.
So, how will you customize your blog’s design?
Now tha’t very neat….loving the diversity of the theme!

The new designs look great, but will have to go with what I have at the moment, and hope I make some sales. Then I will definately purchase the upgrade.

Heart skipping beats as my eyes devour those beautiful, beautiful blogs!

“You already know that you can choose from over 130 awesome themes”
First of all, the majority of those 130 “awesome” themes kind of suck.
And compare those 130 themes to the 1000+ (mostly awesome) themes at tumblr.
Not to bash wordpress.com, i’m a new user, tried a couple alternatives and so far, decided to stay here.
I’m just saying. Those 130 themes are meager compared to what others offer (for free) and are anything but awesome.
Thanks for this post, it came at just the right time for me
I have absolutely no idea about CSS, but changing the fonts was so easy. I think my blog looks refreshed – have you something that works for people too…….. thanks again :)
Trial and Error are my closest friends when it comes to my WORDPRESS BLOG! Anyone in the Richmond, VA area want to start a MEET UP type group to help less wizard-like bloggers, like moi?
Another great feature when we choose to upgrade. Thanks for the latest news! It will encourage bloggers to try and customize their own page… :)
wonderful! thank you!

The fonts are amazing! Thanks a lot.
Looking forward to pushing my blog that much further with some custom designing. Thanks.
Fantastic! Great add, now maybe I don’t need Typepad anymore :P
Clean and simple. A bit like me.
I like it.
Can I change the color of my new fonts that I just purchased? Also, I want to change the type in a sidebar. How?
I’ve no idea about CSS – do you think I could try it also??? It looks very nice and I would be happy to have a tool I could better arrange my pictures…
Thans for help!
I love to customize my blog too but I need to pay for it which is not for me this time.
