New Themes: Mixfolio and Yoko

I’m pleased to announce the latest two additions to the ever-growing collection of free themes here at WordPress.com.

First up is Mixfolio, a responsive, post format-packed, photographer-loving portfolio theme.

Designed by Graph Paper Press, Mixfolio looks great on all screens, large and small, and comes delivered with a Theme Options panel that will give your photo portfolio home page more personality. Two custom menus, five uniquely-designed post formats, and a design well-suited for featured images are only part of what you’ll get with Mixfolio.

Read more about its features on the Theme Showcase or dive right into previewing it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

Next up is Yoko, a simple, elegant, and modern three-column blog theme.

Designed by Elmastudio, Yoko provides an awesome balance between what we’ve all come to expect from traditional blogging and boundary-pushing theme design. Its responsive layout optimizes the theme for mobile devices and to make your blog posts more interesting Yoko offers several different post formats. Add in custom background and custom header functionality, custom menus, and widget areas, and you’ve got a clear winner in Yoko.

    Hello there,
    I’m impressed by how hard the Theme Team works to deliver new themes for our use. I’m still looking for a responsive width theme that has full width page templates that I like. Mixfolio has full width page templates but I’m not a photographer. The features both themes have are useful and I’m going to try Yoko in my test blog to see if it’s the theme I’ve been looking for or not. Thanks so much for introducing these attractive themes.

    Mixfolio looks amazing for a photo blog I wan to start, the problem is that my intended audience is no longer restricted by 1024x768pixel monitors from 10 years ago.

    W I D E S C R E E N monitors are the de facto standard today, from high resolution wide laptop displays over 1200 pixels wide, to 24, 27, 30″ displays with enough room to put more than two WordPress blogs side by side and still have extra screen real estate.

    I’d like to see Mixfolio also have scaling capabilities in the BIG direction too. For those people who always hit the “full screen” button in their browser window and then they can see more columns, more photos, with their whole screen.

    Take a look at your home screen for Pinterest and you’ll see where WordPress needs to go.

    WIDE people, WIDE.
    I’m getting tired of every single WordPress theme looking like a WordPress theme because it’s constrained for XVGA screen resolutions from 10 years ago. Give me one that’s 2x as wide, or the sidebars are ADDED to the central theme area, instead of carve away space within it.

    I’m always looking for a photo theme – I will be sure to test drive your new offerings. It is great that you are offering themes that offer interesting new variations.

    Yoko’s good, but it suffers from the trend of themes with white post backgrounds with very light gray text (and this case small to boot). That kind of stuff is hard to read for a lot of people.

    I really love MIXFOLIO. I have waited so long for a free WP theme capable of album like features focusing on showcasing a portfolio of images, and nothing else. I have now started my dream photoblog to try out this new theme. Liking it so far!

    Mixfolio’s definitely a cool photo/artwork display type theme. Yoko’s a pretty cool 3 column theme. If I was going to start another blog, these would definitely be contenders.
