WordPress Theme: Kirby

Kirby 2010 default WordPress theme

Kirby by Ian Stewart started out as an idea for the next default WordPress theme when version 3.0 comes out. It’s a white, gray, and black theme with large text, ample white space, and what looks like a modern retelling of the default theme Kubrick we’ve come to know and love. There are two sidebar areas and four widget areas in the footer.

So I made the Kirby Theme. Actions speak louder than words, right? In the same way, code speaks louder than ideas. What better way to show off your ideas for a new Default Theme than to actually code one up? I get a fun project and you get a new Theme.

It has indeed been adopted by the WP development team as the new default theme and is now called Twenty Ten. It’s going through several tweaks until it’s fit to be called the predecessor of the great Kubrick. If you don’t want to wait until WP 3.0 to come out to use this theme, it’s available right now in the Themes Directory.

Pinoy WordPress Theme: Tiffany Blue

Tiffany Blue is a theme for WordPress created by Filipino designer Ia Lucero, inspired by the official color of Tiffany & Co.

It started with the color I wanted to paint the walls of my room with. Of course I wanted blue. But something not too blue. I ended up choosing a very icy aquamarine (as noted by the man who did the painting), but continued to be fascinated by the remote regions of cyan.

Then I discovered Tiffany Blue and its reputation of all things luxurious and romantic. It is Tiffany & Co.’s official color (Pantone Matching System number 1837, the founding year of the company!), whose petite boxes contain strands of silver and drops of diamonds. Though for me, having the cute boxes would be enough.

Tiffany Blue is a runner up in the Sandbox theme design competition held a few months back. You can check out a live preview via sndbox.org’s theme switcher (select Tiffany Blue from the dropdown box). You can download the theme here.

September 25, 2008 | 1 Comment

Una WordPress Theme

Una is a 2-column, slightly grungy WordPress theme created by Dino Latoga. It won the best free custom theme in the 2008 Philippine Blog Awards.

The front page shows the latest post with it’s accompanying large graphic image which helps attract readers more than the usual large text titles. Below the latest post is a list of the 3 other recent posts with each post accompanied by a nice thumbnail image. Each section title is supported by a nice subtitle. The comments and trackbacks are divided to produce a clean and organized look.

It’s widget- and Gravatar-ready and requires Twitter Tools and the Advanced Excerpt Plugin, so be sure to read the instructions first.

Download Una
