New Themes: Magazine and Parament

Magazine is a sleek and stylish theme from StudioPress that’s perfect for showcasing your carefully crafted content. Choose from ten color schemes and six layout options and customize it to your taste. Make it yours for a lifetime subscription of $75, and discover all its features on the Theme Showcase.

Parament is a beautiful, all-purpose theme featuring a dark color scheme with bright orange highlights and a textured background. Its clean, colorful, and curved lines will help your content stand out from the crowd. Learn all about it on the Theme Showcase.

Enjoy.

    I wish you’d do some more “fun” themes. They’ve all been so serious and aimed towards the photographers.

    HUGE fan of “Magazine” — perhaps because of my background in magazine editing? Or just because it’s super cool… ;)

    Clean, simple, bold — and I LOVE the tabs!

    WHOA. The Magazine style is fantastic! I won’t be taking it, though, because it would make my blog look TOO professional, and I don’t know if I’d be able to live up to those standards. :)

    Magazine would be so perfect for my blog. It has the right style for my blog. Only if it was free…..

    Paramount is cool, especially with the orange highlights and textured background.

    I REALLY liked Parament at first sight. My only wish is that I could align my header text; if I could stick it in the lower left-hand corner, I’d say it was almost custom-made for me. Simple, sophisticated, easy-to-read, works on an iPad.

    Every magazine theme looks like an actual “website”. That’s got to be the reason almost each of them cost money.
    I like the free theme as well. I’ll keep my theme the way it is though, I’ve finally found one that works! =)

    I think Magazine’s type style (for the title) is cool, but I like Parament better.

    Why did you name Parament as you did?

    If I was looking for a theme for photographs, I would certainly use Parament. The photos look good, the font is very easy to read and Blockquotes are nicely emphasized.

    I’m not interested in new themes. I’d rather you work on making the formatting of blog posts with inserted pictures more user friendly so that I could arrange the layout of pictures and text the way I want it to look.

    Really nice layout, clean and good proportions between top part and bottom, wonder if it should to have small tumbledown into the top headings to make it even more interesting to enter into the pages. All in all a top new style and probably needed since magazines are top stuff. Thanks.
