New Themes: Portfolio and Grisaille

Feeling creative? You’ve come to the right place–we have two new, fantastically artsy themes for your viewing pleasure!

Portfolio

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.

Grisaille

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.

    Did I read somewhere you can “try these themes out” on your current blog to see what it would look like?

    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.

    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?
