Feeling creative? You’ve come to the right place–we have two new, fantastically artsy themes for your viewing pleasure!
First up is Portfolio, a clean, sophisticated premium theme by The Theme Foundry. Catalog all your creative efforts–photography, illustration, sculpture, poetry, and more–with a flexible and easy-to-use interface. Drag-and-drop simplicity coupled with a generous featured post slider helps you create an attractive, professional site with ease–which means you can spend more time making beautiful things!
Read more about how to create your own Portfolio on the Theme Showcase.
Next comes Grisaille, a free theme by Nudge Design. The term “grisaille” refers to the practice of painting in monochrome, particularly shades of gray, to achieve a three-dimensional effect–very appropriate for this classic, grayscale theme!
Grisaille is the perfect combination of grunge and minimalism, and it’s sure to complement to your work no matter the subject. It’s a great way to share your experimental pinhole photography collection, showcase your local museum’s latest exhibits, or blog for your contemporary painting class. Maybe you’re not into art and you just want a classy look for your site–that’s cool, too. Whatever your passion, it’s sure to flourish with Grisaille! Read more about its features on the Theme Showcase.

Awwww, I just finished changing my theme yesterday to Pilcrow. I should have waited. I like Grisaille but I love the Portfolio font header. I will try this soon. Nice themes, thanks WordPress.

Love, love, love Portfolio

Wow I really love Portfolio theme… it’s so clean and bright. CONGRATS!

Portfolio looks smashing, but given that I tend not to purchase themes, it’s good that another clean theme like Grisaille has been added to the free options. Thanks! Might experiment with it on one of my blogs when I get bored of the current theme.

Is it possible to change my blog theme with this theme?

Damn, I wish Portfolio were free..
Any other theme like that/similar to that which is free?

Portfolio is lovely!

Nice I wish this post was up a few weeks ago! I will keep it in mind for my photographer friends.

Considering I’m a graphic design student, Portfolio makes me smile. A LOT! Haha, thank you!
Jun 11th at 12:07 pm
Nice theme but many look alike.
Jun 11th at 7:26 pm
Nice and status quo. Someone give us something out of the box, like DePo Masthead.
Jun 11th at 9:25 pm
‘Portfolio’ seems like an appropriate theme for me
Jun 12th at 1:07 am
Looks really good. Gonna try it.

Portfolio is nice. Grisaille is so artistic. Like it.
Jun 12th at 12:27 pm
Love Portfolio so much… but
Jun 12th at 2:14 pm
I love Grisaille, but is it a bad thing to keep switching your theme?
Jun 12th at 4:14 pm
Nice additions to the themes on offer.
Jun 12th at 7:41 pm
Very nice themes.
Jun 12th at 11:58 pm
Ugh, once more, minimalistic, purist, BORING WP themes. Guys, I love WP, I think you offer the best features, but on themes you really drop the ball in my opinion (and yes, I’m aware it’s a matter of taste). I just don’t understand why, with millions of different blogs, you stick mainly to those minimalistic themes. Surely there are more users than just me who need and want more baroque, opulent and creative themes. Why can’t you make those happen just as regularly as your clean, boring ones?

I love Portfolio. I absolutely love it. Almost as much as my all time favorite “Coraline”
Jun 15th at 1:47 pm
I LOVE the portfolio theme. So clean. And perfect for a photographer, definitely going to recommend it to my mom.
Jun 16th at 7:00 pm
Love, love, love these themes! They’re simple but so effective! Very nice

Love the Portfolio!! So clean! Love all white themes!
Jun 18th at 1:27 am
I wish I could afford one.
Jun 18th at 8:43 am
Is there an option to change the text “view project” on Portfolio?
Jun 18th at 12:51 pm
Jun 18th at 1:58 pm
It looks very professional and clean, I like it.
