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!

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 Portfolio type themes! Thank you so much~
I’ll try it out :)
I like portfolio. Too bad it’s not for free…
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.
Nice looking, clean, clear and close.
I really like Portfolio. It’s clean, and elegant.
I really like Portfolio
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!
Nice theme but many look alike.
Nice and status quo. Someone give us something out of the box, like DePo Masthead.
‘Portfolio’ seems like an appropriate theme for me ;)
Looks really good. Gonna try it.
Portfolio is nice. Grisaille is so artistic. Like it.
Love Portfolio so much… but
I love Grisaille, but is it a bad thing to keep switching your theme?
Nice additions to the themes on offer.
Very nice themes.
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”
I LOVE the portfolio theme. So clean. And perfect for a photographer, definitely going to recommend it to my mom.
Love, love, love these themes! They’re simple but so effective! Very nice :)
Love the Portfolio!! So clean! Love all white themes!
I wish I could afford one.
Is there an option to change the text “view project” on Portfolio?
It looks very professional and clean, I like it.
Where I can get Grisaille theme?
Awesome themes :D
