We’re launching two new themes this week — one free and one premium — check them out!
New Themes: Kelly and Arcade
This week we’re pleased to introduce you to two new themes: Kelly and Arcade!
Kelly, a delightful new free theme, was created by Automattic designer Kelly Hoffman. About creating Kelly, she says, “I really wanted to keep it simple but fun, which is why I went with bold splashes of color and large type.”
Kelly‘s discerning typography and single-column layout makes reading an absolute pleasure, while multiple widget areas in the footer give plenty of space for related information. Let Kelly be your next beautiful blog canvas.
Arcade, a new premium WordPress.com theme by Montréal designer/developer c.bavota, features both a fun flair and refined aesthetic. Boasting a full-screen background and five widget areas, it also gives users unique access to a full library of icons for their own creative use. Suitable for blogs and modern-minded businesses alike, Arcade can convey your message to the world.
Kelly is a free theme, while Arcade is a premium upgrade. Check out each theme’s showcase by clicking on its screenshot above, or preview it on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

These look great. Will have to give them a go.
Arcade seems really amazing.
A free theme that looks good – thank you for your work Kelly!
Kelly has the same problem that so many others do; the font is grey. It’s too light to read. I’m not 100 years old, or even close to half that, and I should be able to read other people’s blogs. Why can’t the default setting be black?
I love the Arcade theme – it’s fun without being too cutesy and handles images nicely. Very tempting!
I love the ‘splash of colour’ in Kelly’s theme. It reminded me straight off of a couple of other themes, but looking closer, there is a difference and I’m quite liking it! For me though, I am a sucker for having a ‘sidebar’. Bar that, as design goes, the colour and typography makes it preferable over the other similar themes. Good job Kelly!
Wish Arcade had the option to show full posts on the homepage!
I have used the free version of Arcade from WordPress repo. It is possibly the best WordPress theme made with bootstrap. Kelly appears great too.
The new Kelly theme is amazing, i am loving it on blog. Thanks !
This is an fabulous theme, i will definitely try this on my new wordpress blog.
I am a newbie blogger having a lot of fun trying out the different themes. I am sure to try out Kelly and probably arcade later.
I am loving Kelly! still need to explore options.
I like Kelly for its large fonts and images, but I prefer themes with sidebars.
So nice and beautiful ! good job !
I decided to try Arcade and I LOVE it. Thank you! :-)
Kelly is a good WordPress blog theme and Arcade, I really love it. Thanks, Kirk!
Social menu in Arcade theme is pretty good, easy links to the my faverit social sites and I like
“Post Block” in this theme too.
Love the Kelly theme, using it on my site at the moment. Love the style, colours, there is nothing I would change about it.
