New Themes: The Great Adventure, The Columnist, and Vintage Camera

Today, we have three fantastic themes to introduce you to.

First, take your readers on a journey – be it soaring through the skies or blasting off into space – with The Great Adventure, a fun premium theme with playful illustrations from Seth Gerard.

Now, here is a theme that lets you choose your own adventure — do you prefer to travel by plane or by rocket? Do you prefer your airplane-style theme in green, purple and pink, or yellow? Do you prefer your space-style theme in blue, grey, or red? Would you like a right sidebar? Footer sidebars? How about a sidebar that your readers can open and close? The choice is yours. Start your journey by heading over to the Theme Showcase for more details on The Great Adventure, or take the demo for a test flight. Happy travels, wherever your blogging adventures may take you.

Next, The Columnist is a grid-tacular, magazine-style theme to cleanly share your posts with the world.

The Columnist

Designed by Ben Martineau and utilizing bold typography and minimalist principles, The Columnist focuses on your content first and foremost. Featured images are creatively used as thumbnails in the home, archive, and search views, and if wide enough, as large banner images over the single view of a post. Subtle CSS3 animations provide an added level of interactivity to the theme without cluttering the design. Learn more about The Columnist by heading over to the Theme Showcase or testing out its demo.

And to round out our introductions today, I’m proud to present Vintage Camera, designed by our very own Caroline Moore!

Vintage Camera

It’s hard to imagine a better way to share your lomo or polaroid scans, than with a theme designed with just those classic cameras in mind. Offering six different retro-camera header illustration and color scheme combinations to choose from, you’ll be able to stylishly show-off your inner photographer with ease. For those of us that are a little more “faux-retro”, a responsive design will allow you to seamlessly view your filtered phone photos on any device! Head on over to the Theme Showcase to find out more info about Vintage Camera, or focus your viewfinder on its demo site to see it in action.

    Cool! Here’s the themes names I see: the cute, the serious, and the photographers blog. Hands up for WordPress having the best themes. I LOVE my oxygen theme, shouldn’t be free IMHO.

    I really like The Columnist theme! Actually it’s almost exactly what I’ve been looking for for the past few days. However, it seems that this theme has been designed over 2 years ago. Nothing wrong with that. But the front page shows up jumbled and messy in my older (~2y) Firefox version. Compared to the correct rendering in a more recent Chrome, there them to be a couple of incompatibilities.

    I’ve finally settled on a theme after haunting the Themes page at length. Settled on the Vintage Camera, ‘Sable’ theme option. For an absolutely indecisive person, I could say for certain that this is my most favourite theme out there; absolutely loving it!
