New Themes: Watson, Simfo, and Publish

Brace yourselves, new themes are coming. Today I’m pleased to announce the latest three additions to the ever-growing collection of themes here at WordPress.com.

First up is Watson, by The Theme Foundry.

Watson: Home Page

Inspired by the clean lines and bold strokes of a classic newspaper, Watson boasts a neatly organized front page layout and a pleasurable reading experience that was designed with writers in mind. It offers a beautiful featured slider for important posts, looks great on devices both big and small, and comes with a lovely custom widget that takes advantage of featured post thumbnails.

Watson is a premium upgrade for your blog; read more about its features on the Theme Showcase or dive right into previewing it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

Our second treat for you today is Simfo, a theme that has a minimal, yet strong, aesthetic that’s embellished with subtle hints of grunge.

Simfo: Home Page

Designed by Themify, Simfo directs all focus to what matters most: your content; and it was built from the ground up to support screen sizes from small to large, ensuring that your site will look great for visitors on the go.

Last, but certainly not least, is Publish, created by our very own Konstantin Kovshenin.

Publish: Home Page

Publish is a clean, minimal, responsive theme ideal for individual bloggers. One of its neat features is that it uses your Gravatar image as the blog’s header to make your site recognizable and unique. It’s also available for immediate download from WordPress.org.

    The “Publish” theme looks like it might be good for technical blogs.

    I think that the Publish theme has a great personal feel to it. Great maybe for famous personalities.

    They all look so nice! Especially Watson! I might test the Publish theme to see how it goes. There should be a theme for short story blogs (a big emphasis on photos and text, an option to disable sidebars).

    I love ‘Publish’ for your Gravatar Bio and picture to be on the home page; it’s a nice touch. I have mine in my sidebar.

    ‘Simfo’ is gorgeous!! Now that would be one I would consider buying as a premium to showcase my Photo Blog!
