Inuit Types is one of the sharpest looking themes around and I’m excited to let you know that today it’s now available on WordPress.com. Let’s take a look at what it has to offer—including the alternate dark color scheme.
The image above highlights the optional featured posts (available from Appearance->Theme Settings) that take advantage of the new Post Thumbnail module available from your Edit Post page when using the Inuit Types theme.
Inuit Types features a clean drop-down menu with lots of room for multiple pages.
And now, a look at the front page intro widget area—a great place to add an extended introduction to your blog.
There’s a lot of really cool details in Inuit Types—things like full-width image attachment pages or the custom default avatar image for comments—but the thing I think you’ll be most excited about are the layout options and alternate color schemes available from Appearance->Theme Settings.
Here I’ve set up my Inuit Types demo blog with the included dark color scheme and full width featured posts. I’ve also chosen to display the sidebar on the left side of my content. Check it out.
Pretty cool, huh? And—besides looking great—the dark color scheme is one of the most readable I’ve ever seen; I love it. I’m pretty excited about Inuit Types. I hope you will be too.
Inuit Types is available in your WordPress.com dashboard and, for WordPress.org users, in the WordPress.org themes directory.

Looks pretty cool and rich.
Apr 15th at 9:55 pm
Wow! It really looks legible and is reminiscent of the current one that I use. Thanks very much for this theme inclusion! You guys are great!
Apr 15th at 9:57 pm
nice,but iwant a three column theme.can i change this in any color besides black or white?
Apr 15th at 10:01 pm
I love it! Very professional-looking, gorgeous design!
Apr 15th at 10:05 pm
Looks like it showcases photos nicely!
Apr 15th at 10:09 pm
I like the sharp contrast! =)
Apr 15th at 10:12 pm
Very classy and beautiful- like me! Just Joking…
I love the drop-down menus and the clean look on the pages. The way the widgets are displayed add a very organized look to the theme. I think the black color makes this a good theme for bloggers with a lot of pictures, black really helps the pictures “pop”.
Keep up the good work WordPress.
Apr 15th at 10:38 pm
Okay, I just got truly, genuinely excited about a blog theme. Sweet look, and I’m likin’ the features. The front page text widget, dual columns and drop-downs are three things I’ve wanted to see in combination for awhile.
Apr 15th at 11:00 pm
sweet, not ready for a change yet but I’m loving all the new themes that are rolling out and looking forward to seeing more and more
Apr 15th at 11:05 pm
Great theme! So clean and fresh!
Apr 15th at 11:18 pm
Please put new theme announcements on its own email thread. Most of the time most of us are not shopping for new themes. The transition is too difficult (which is in itself a problem, no doubt to be solved by WordPress in a future iteration!).
Apr 15th at 11:21 pm
Very, very nice in the Dark Theme esp. for photos. Really sets ‘em off beautifully. Thanks for keeping ‘em coming!
Apr 15th at 11:26 pm
I’m visually challenged and I can read the font on this black background theme that has so many handy features. Only one thing disappoints me. The size of the font in the blog title is so large that it does not accommodate my blog title. Aside from that I do like the theme very much. Thank you for this addition.
Apr 15th at 11:38 pm
Finally, a good magazine-style theme for WordPress.com users! Thank you.
Apr 15th at 11:57 pm
I will change to INUIT asap.
Apr 16th at 12:07 am
very great theme.. I’m gonna try it,. l wonder if it fits on my photoblog with some text too,, thanx…
Apr 16th at 12:09 am
A theme with a dark alter-ego! Fun concept. I particularly like the small box-sized blog abstracts, they look very inviting for further reading. Could definitely make a very slick, interesting page using this. Thanks!
Apr 16th at 12:11 am
That’s really plush…I might use it on my blog
Apr 16th at 12:15 am
Beautifully modernistic. Would definitely be my second choice if I ever do get tired of mine (not likely, but I’ve mercurial behaviour and tastes).
Apr 16th at 12:24 am
Very nice theme. Plain, simple and effective.
Apr 16th at 12:25 am
Oooh. Looks awesome (and I speak as an Englishman, not usually given to superlatives). The only problem I can see is that everyone will be using it…
Apr 16th at 12:26 am
Score 1 for the Theme Team! Love this clean theme.
Apr 16th at 12:30 am
this theme is awesome. I use it now on my blog. Thanks ian
Apr 16th at 12:51 am
Nice… I especially like the striking black look and the drop-down menu for multiple pages.
Apr 16th at 12:56 am
I’ll check it out when I have time….seems more masculine and classy than my current one…plus it gives me more creative options…
Apr 16th at 1:07 am
Going to try it right now. I really hope the post column width is 640px or more. A lot of your themes have such thin column widths…
Apr 16th at 1:13 am
This is the nicest theme I have seen on here. I love Vigilance as well, but this one is pretty neat. No custom header though. Oh well, I managed before and can do so again. Thanks so much!
Apr 16th at 1:18 am
Very nice! I love the font, the white, the flexibility, the elegance. Will give this one a whirl. Thank you oh wonderful WordPress!
Apr 16th at 1:25 am
Looks nice on the preview. Might try when tonight.
Apr 16th at 2:15 am
so cool, i like the colour and the position of the text
Apr 16th at 2:32 am
I love it! Looks really professional. I might have to change the theme, again.
Apr 16th at 2:46 am
The idea with two column in the post area is very nice. but looks clumsy if the posts don’t have any images as you have shown in preview. also if the blog has long header text… it looks horrible
Apr 16th at 2:51 am
Apr 16th at 3:00 am
The dark color theme looks truly great; but the sidebar color in white color theme is exactly opposite to base color which makes it strike the viewers’ eyes more than the content area, a lighter shade of grey would have been better to balance the contrast.
Apr 16th at 3:13 am
Wow. . nice!
Apr 16th at 4:15 am
This is a very versatile theme! I’m lovin’ it! I might even try it out later…
Apr 16th at 4:22 am
That’s very nice. I will give it a preview. You guys never rest, do you? thanks!
Apr 16th at 4:55 am
very Kawaii <3 i love it
Apr 16th at 5:00 am
Great theme nice looks and great customizations too.
Apr 16th at 5:02 am
Looks awesome. I would like to try it soon.
Apr 16th at 5:06 am
Beautiful, sleek and clean. I’m still waiting for one with custom headers though.
Apr 16th at 5:07 am
really nice! very tempting! congrats on another excellent theme, wordpress!
Apr 16th at 5:13 am
Looks okay… good work, keep it up. I would love to see more themes for a photoblog.
Apr 16th at 5:24 am
Yes I agree , cool and clear for my style.
Apr 16th at 5:35 am
i love this.. thanks guys. will use it pretty soon!
Apr 16th at 5:41 am
I’m going to try it out right now!
Apr 16th at 6:20 am
Wow! I like it!
Apr 16th at 6:53 am
Does it have two child columns in article column ?, if so….. just great
Apr 16th at 6:56 am
Uh this looks very cool. Nice and clean. Thanks;)
Apr 16th at 7:22 am
A very classy-looking theme, definitely readable, and with a large, bold, confident font for the headings. I particularly like that it uses more of the width of the screen. I also like the option of using post thumbnails. Well done.
Apr 16th at 7:39 am
Very cool theme…
Apr 16th at 7:48 am
awesome, but not enough color…
Apr 16th at 7:48 am
I like the customization.
Apr 16th at 8:45 am
I love it! I’m sticking with journalist v1.3 because it shows full posts in tag and category overviews, but I’m hella-jealous of this beautiful new theme!
Apr 16th at 8:55 am
Beautiful and, indeed, very flexible. Thanks!
Apr 16th at 10:35 am
the dark theme is more appealing.
i will try this theme soon
Apr 16th at 10:49 am
I love the flexibility, especially the two columns and the option of “featured posts” that run across both columns. If these features are combined with a custom image header, I’ll be sure to switch.
Apr 16th at 10:57 am
love it, best new theme ive seen since joining wordpress
Apr 16th at 11:11 am
I’ve always liked the black background; I’m utilizing the “Black – LetterHead theme currently. Love the twin columns here, along with the full width ‘top blog’. The drop-down menus have a ton of potential.
Apr 16th at 12:32 pm
Absolutely great. People have been wanting another great dark background. Keep up the excellent work. I keep getting people I know to use WordPress instead of the other less wonderful platforms.
Apr 16th at 12:39 pm
This is the best theme of the lot, excellent and professional setup. I think i would be using this theme in near future
Apr 16th at 12:52 pm
Very nice theme, good work
Apr 16th at 1:03 pm
wow! i loved it! the best <3!
Apr 16th at 1:27 pm
I will use it for now but just wish the writing (blog) area were a trifle wider. Say 720 pixels? I am not keen on 3 column themes this one is more like it but just not wide enough. sigh.
Apr 16th at 1:35 pm
Nice, lovely theme… Thanks
Apr 16th at 1:38 pm
Thanks for the new theme but I find it a bit hard with thumbnails. I want to say that Titan is one of the best themes ever.
Thanks for all updates!
Apr 16th at 2:11 pm
Apr 16th at 2:26 pm
Theme team seems to be working out a lot…
can i suggest designs???
Apr 16th at 2:28 pm
AWESOME! The Theme Team rocks!!
I will definitely consider switching to this theme!! I love how you can have an introduction to the blog right on the front page!
Apr 16th at 2:33 pm
Thanks,I love new themes
Apr 16th at 2:36 pm
This is cool. I’ll try it
Apr 16th at 3:02 pm
ohh it’s wonderful, i must try it
Apr 16th at 3:14 pm
Wou … I really loved this beautiful, very interesting to visit
Apr 16th at 3:58 pm
Great work, nice layout.
Apr 16th at 4:03 pm
Nice features…very good!
Apr 16th at 4:22 pm
i like it..good work.. thanks
Apr 16th at 5:04 pm
And this just gets more awesomer (it’s not a word, but it should be just for this theme.) Matter of fact that sounds like theme name. (yeah, you can borrow it.)
I love the two colum wide features and knowing i can change colors wonderful.
Plus the feature tab is cool too.
Apr 16th at 6:19 pm
a really neat new option- I hope we start seeing even more highly customizable themes!
Apr 16th at 7:25 pm
Ready for (and working on) the change! Great features. Thx.
Apr 16th at 7:52 pm
six color schemes – inuit is impressive
Apr 16th at 8:10 pm
Every time I think I’m happy with how my blog looks, you give me new options. It’s hard to find the time to play with it, but don’t stop!
Apr 16th at 8:49 pm
This does look pretty sharp. I’d love to include a background image or texture as opposed to flat black, though. Something like rough paper, clouds, diamondplate, dust, etc.
I say this as someone who uses a dark theme, with a colored background (that I customized for width.)
Apr 16th at 9:38 pm
I’ve given it a whirl and there is SO much I like about this theme…but I don’t like the heavy black-sidebar on the white background and would SO much love it if this very same theme had the option of a white sidebar with the same text font (black)….in other words, super simplicity.
Other than that, the font is so elegant, drop down menus awesome, the column flexibility and left/ride sidebar flexibility, the intro box, the extra page templates…well I could go on and on. It’s a gorgeous, professional theme.
Thank you dream team (ooops Theme Team).
Apr 16th at 9:46 pm
Nice use of both base colors… the menu bar is too nice.
Apr 16th at 11:02 pm
Cool! – but I don’t really understand the name. The Inuit are the indigenous people of the arctic – Greenland, Canada and parts of northern Russia – what is the relation to these Inuit Types?
Apr 16th at 11:31 pm
How in the world do you make a post “featured” ?
Or does it default to your last post?
Apr 17th at 12:42 am
The more the merrier. Good work theme team.
