New Theme: Retro-fitted

I’m pleased to announce the latest addition to the ever-growing collection of free themes here at WordPress.com. Retro-fitted by Justin Tadlock mixes subtle textures with clean lines and shadows to create a beautifully balanced composition perfect for all types of blogs.

Retro-fitted can be personalized in a variety of ways. Customize the look of your blog by uploading a header and background image. Take control of you navigation by configuring the dropdown menu. Add widgets to the sidebar for a two-column layout or leave it empty for a single column design.

Check it out in the Theme Showcase.

    I do like this theme; it’s classic like, simple, and wonderful. I like its graphics, and the style is simple and clean. All together, WordPress rocks and so does this theme! Congratulations to the designer/coder :D

    I do love have simple and clean the 2-column design is — totally easy for navigation. And I’m digging the almost 3D effect of the posts…brilliant!

    Thanks for the theme. I’m giving it a try. Is there anyway to make the sidebar boxes (around the widget’s) smaller. ie. my RSS feed looks so lonely in there. :)

    I kind of like it — I hope there are more grungy themes on the horizon – even for a fee. I’m not in love with what I have – but it best respresents my blog at this time.

    I’ve been waiting for a theme like this to come along. It works well in terms of accessibility: big fonts, lots of clear space, the “Leave a comment” links in a reasonably visible colour. I would like to be able to turn the orange line and the orange search box into different colours, but I suspect that I would still be looking for a dramatic contrast.

    I have it loaded on my blog if anyone wants to take a look: http://beefaerie.wordpress.com/

    Thanks for the great theme.
