1. Those are some really nice themes. Thanks for rounding them up, Sarah!

  2. Dang, I *really* like Ryan’s Hellish Simplicity theme. Very clean.

    1. I’m with you on that one Andy.
      Love the ultra clear font combination and the introduction of that glorious red for some major headlines and links looks fantastic.

      Not easy to strip a theme down… and leave it looking good.

  3. I really like the clean and minimal trend as well, i’ve never liked bloated themes either on the outside or in the admin. I think it helps put emphasis on the content as well if the theme is simple.

  4. Thanks for this post. I am going to look into Tonal and Casper. Right now I am using an Artisteer theme that is great but it is having some html and css type errors. I’m not sure that I want to give it up but those are two options for me if I do.

  5. TinyPress seems like a really solid theme for sites that focus on content, text, and blogging. Thanks for the ideas!


    elmastudio also offers some free minimalistic themes with high class designs

  7. ‘Padhang is a Javanesse word that means “bright.” ‘ And then the theme authors proceed to use the most dreary, somber photo available in their header as a demo. Classic.

  8. Prabu Rajasekaran

    These are some of the most amazing simple themes. Thank you for your effort finding them.

  9. Wow! I had no idea my theme was featured here until stumbling across it now whilst looking for another theme :)

  10. Thanks, Im new to wordpress and was feeling a little overwhelmed by all the plug ins some themes come preinstalled with. I’m a huge fan of these stripped down themes.
