New Themes: Everyday and Origin

In our quest to help you find the perfect look for your blog, we’ve added two brand new themes to our collection!

First up is Everyday, a beautifully designed premium theme by James Goode.

Everyday has been precisely calibrated to be pleasurably readable on almost any screen. Attention and care has especially been given to provide a robust and versatile layout to suit your writing needs. From short quips to lengthier bits of prose, Everyday will rise to the challenge and shine with every post you publish. Read more about it in the Theme Showcase or take it for a test spin in the demo site.

Next is a wonderful free theme named Origin by Galin Simeonov.

Origin is a light, elegant theme with a minimalist look and feel, perfect for a blog or journal. Your photos are the focus thanks to featured images and stylized Sticky posts, and the responsive design makes it a great fit for mobile devices and small screen sizes. A full list of features is available in the Theme Showcase and a demo site has been set up so that you can see it in action.

    So many themes to choose from. I’d be tempted to buy a Premium Theme, but have found it is much more fun to have the CSS Upgrade. Now I can modify all the free themes to my heart’s content.

    I love the simplicity and elegance of “Origin”. Might need to give this one a whirl! Thank you for the continuing stream and new themes.

    Both are lightweight themes. ;) But I’m waiting for more existing themes to be WordAds-optimized. Specially Splendid, which is the only theme I’m deeply in love with. ♥

    I think I’m in love with “Everyday”. ;)

    My theme features a red background with black font, and I know that can be hard on the eyes…I really think I’m about ready to graduate to something more simple but still eye-catching. I think I may have found that in this new theme!

    I guess minimalist themes are the most popular because they can be used for just about anything. Still, would love to see another whimsical option when you get the chance :)

    Haven’t seen many borderless themes that I have loved. But Carousel is an exception. Excellent use of space and color. Cheers!

    Origin looks good but i think it should have more color though.

    I like Origin a lot! I’ve been using Twenty Ten and I may just be ready to give this new one a whirl. I have a lot of photos in my posts. Still working on getting around wordpress. So glad I’m here. Thanks for continuing to come up with the great looks!

    I love the use of colour, Origin is especially attractive with it’s clear and crisp look and the red at the top doesn’t take anything away from pictures used in the body.

    Is it just me, or do a lot of these themes look alike? There are only so many ways one can do “minimal” design.

    I love the myriad themes offered on WP…but for me, custom backgrounds are the only way to go!

    I quite like Origin. It’s simple, clean and looks really nice. The Everyday theme, sorry, I am not so keen on because of the grey and red, it reminds me of a few other themes in WP and doesn’t stand out for me, sorry James :-( . Origin, on the other hand, looks bright and elegant and stands out. Good job Galin. :-)
