New Themes: Hum, Monster, and Timepiece

We know you’ve been waiting for it – Theme Day has arrived, and with it comes three awesome new themes!

Hum

First up is Hum, a beautifully designed theme by Automattic’s very own Daryl Koopersmith. Based on Twenty Eleven, Hum offers up a new twist on an old favorite, with a fixed left sidebar, support for multiple post formats, and space for a logo. Simplify, bring your content front and center, and do so in graceful elegance with Hum. Visit the theme showcase to make Hum your very own!

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

Next up we have a seasonal treat. In many parts of the world, the leaves have started to turn, the air is getting crisp, and that can mean only one thing – the witching season is upon us! Why not decorate your blog for the occasion?

Monster

Introducing Monster, a frightfully spooky Halloween theme designed by fellow Wrangler Michael Fields and illustrated by yours truly. This theme features six classic monster figures to choose from, so you can change it up to suit your mood.

Haunt the theme showcase to get your own Monster today, or preview it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

And last, but certainly not least, we have Timepiece. Designed by Joen Asmussen, Timepiece is built to make your archives shine. Like a river of content, the theme will make going back in time easy peasy and show it all to you in glorious color and a simple, minimalist layout.

Timepiece: Home Page

Timepiece: Home Page With Custom Header

    Monster makes me laugh. Hum draws my interest. Timepiece may be right for me. ;) Cheers for the Themes Staff for rolling out these new themes for our use.

    Hum is cool, but Timepiece is amazing! If I wasn’t committed to Nuintus on my current blog, Timepiece would probably be the one I would be looking for.

    Hello! Hum is really rich in customization after viewing it in the showcase and extremely impressive. The image here really doesn’t do it justice (no offence intended at all) But it sounds amazing. :-)

    Monster is too cute and would be great for bloggers young and even old with it’s fun factor. But Timepiece, for me personally, would not suit. Still great that they are all non-premium. Thumbs-up and a thanks, WP! :-)

    Great themes. Something for everyone here. Timepiece looks intriguing.

    I also like the “Frankenbone” illustration on Monster. Looks like me some days – except he has more hair…

    Thanks for giving us yet more options! Love the idea of holiday-themes to decorate and celebrate the seasons. Also look forward to reading Timepiece-themed blogs. It’s minimalist without losing an artistic aesthetic. :)

    I must have missed these when they got emailed around — they are just fantastic! Monster is my favourite. I’m thoroughly tempted to set up about a million new blogs just so I can use that theme repeatedly.

    Monster is a very good theme for a professional text blog, maybe the best available on WordPress. The only thing I don’t like is too much header height, otherwise it is nearly perfect.
