Big Brother‘s bold colors and strong type will represent your business or organization with sophistication and panache.
New Theme: Big Brother
Today we’re proud to present a brand new free theme, designed especially for large organizations and government by Automattic’s own Michael Arestad.
Big Brother offers a clean and traditional design, multiple color schemes, and support for standard customization features. It’s a professional, readable theme that’s easy to tailor to your organization’s style.
Breadcrumb-style navigation on pages make even the largest sites a breeze to navigate, while the widget area keeps your secondary content close at hand. Start a blog to keep your members up-to-date on current happenings, or use the
[sitemap] shortcode to create a quick, centralized location to list all of your organization’s important information.
As always, Big Brother adapts to your screen size, allowing for a pleasant reading experience no matter the device:
You can see Big Brother in action on the demo site, or activate it on your own blog at Appearance → Themes.

I like the theme, but how well does it integrate social media? Thanks much.
The theme looks solid but I’m not entirely thrilled with the name. “Big Brother” for something designed for government? I suppose it’s appropriate in some countries, though…
This is so cool!! ^_^
A theme designed for business and government named “Big Brother”? Are you kidding me? When is “1984” coming out?
I love the large, very readable text in this theme! I had been looking for something like this. I just activated, but am having a problem with my menu showing up when reducing the screen size and on iPhone. Please advise. I really want to use this theme.
Quite simple & concrete :)
Nice and simple, with a cool minimalist look. I’m very tempted…
Finally there is it…. a template that meets my requirements. Minimal header, clean design and template where the content is focus and not the header or any other graphics and menus that could turn readers off. I waited for such a template for a long time :D Hope to see more of those modern, clean and minimalistic templates in the future!! I´ll test this one here but I believe this could be a very nice alternative to my Twenty Ten theme.
Clean. Simple. Good job!
Big Brother? What an appropriate name :-P
Great! It is nice to see a new theme being added when I started signing up for word press.
Superb! :D i like this theme
Nice, simple and clean. But I’m not entirely sure about the name. I don’t think that there are many government agencies who wants to be associated with Big Brother. :P
Simple and elegant at the same time! Might be suitable for sports clubs, too.
I have a self hosted directory / community website that I’m about to rebuild in WordPress. I would love to use this theme but it doesn’t seem to be available on WordPress.org.
Is there a possibilty of using this theme via WordPress.org?
I’m not very technical, just want to know if it’s possible to do.
I’ll use this theme for my blog. Cheers.
I really love this theme and having been using it for a day or so. However today my menu is not displaying properly – the dropdown options will not show up and each menu heading is hyperlinked? Why is this? I really do not want to have to start over with a new theme.
Very modern and easy to get caught up in, love it!
Like the theme BUT the demo sure does not work on IE8. If I want to convert my web site to a WordPress site, then it must support IE8, just too many users on my site still use that browser.
The majority of users on my site are IE users and IE8 is the most used browser, so I need a theme that works for these users. I have heard all of the comments about old browsers but we put up web sites for users and not for web developers.
Fantastic design, precise blog for news or opinion.
Finally a theme I could settle for ! Loved it!
I love the theme, clean, simple and accessible!
I like the sitemap. Can it do it just posts or pages?
This is great! Makes for an awesome reading experience.
This looks particularly fresh and would prove quite useful to organisations or larger institutions I think. I like the design and the colours in the theme.
I thought it was about totalitarianism, darn, I love global conspiracies.
Just awesome and very clean, brilliant. I applied it to my blog. Thanks
Good template. But the drop down menu’s won’t work. Is that right?
Clear, clear. A good theme.
I love the simplicity. The typography — the headline font and body type font — makes this about as clean and easy to read as you can get. I’m going to try it on one of my blogs or websites. Of course this theme looks very plain vanilla, but I like vanilla (simplicity). With a custom header image you can give it a distinctive look. I like having the title incorporated in the header image, if it’s the right image.
This is a nice one! Simple yet very customizable. :)
It’s a wonderful theme. A welcome image would have been great!
I like this theme very much. It is clear, well organized and the color combination is very appealing. Thank you very much!
This theme helps blog readers focus on content, clean and friendly on the eyes. I love your job.
Very nice simple theme…
That’s a great theme. And well written ma’m.
Unless it was a commentary on the government in that case a sincere good job.
