blog-post

It’s always exciting to release a new theme, and today we’re thrilled to share our latest — Finder with you. You can learn about Finder’s unique features or see it in action right here.

Save 50% for 24 hours

For the next 24 hours we’re offering Finder for just $39 — that’s 50% off. After the sale ends, the price will return to $79.

Design Simplicity

We’ve crafted Finder to frame your content with efficiency and edge, removing much of the typical WordPress clutter so that your images and words are the focus. Only the most important elements remain in our most minimal theme to date.

No post titles, dates, categories, tags or meta information will take away from your images and words, while uncontained images create a sense of space and scale on your posts and pages. Blog feed featured images link together, creating a visual narrative of your journeys, your work, and your passions.

Effortless Custom Styling

Finder features a unique custom text mask you can add to your site’s title. Use the default marble pattern we’ve included, or create and upload your own. Of course, if you already have a logo you love, upload that right from the Customizer as well.

Easily change the background color or image. Pick your favorite header and font colors. Add your own favicon and Apple Touch icon. Finder includes two menu locations, including one in the footer that stays sticky, no matter how long your content scrolls.

Choose your favorite widgets to display on your posts, while your pages and blog feed remain distraction-free.

Built in Typekit Fonts

Using a mix of bold headlines and thinner weight paragraph text creates a sense of visual drama. We’ve echoed the theme’s refined lines with the use of Aktiv Grotesk Std by Dalton Maag, a beautiful yet neutral typeface that that puts an emphasis on the content. No additional Typekit account needed through our partnership with Typekit — we’ve bundled these premium fonts right into the theme.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to save 50% for the next 24 hours (sale ends May 7th at 12 noon EST).

UPDATE: This sale is now over.

Today we’re happy to report that Bailey, a premium theme we’ve only had available for WordPress.org sites, is now available for users on WordPress.com. You can purchase Bailey on your WordPress.com dashboard, or directly from the theme showcase page.

If typography and design are important to you, we know you’ll love this theme. WordPress.com makes it effortless to get your site up and running, but should you run into any problems using one of our themes, you’ll also have access to our same quality support in the premium themes support forums on WordPress.com.

World-class design

Designed by the talented Veerle Pieters, Collections is not only a theme, it’s a work of art. Veerle’s vision for the theme shines through every pixel of the design. Quotes are wrapped in circles, audio files are decorated with record sleeves, and details are accentuated with retina ready icons.

Ultrafast browsing

We started completely from scratch, and engineered the theme around an all new lightning fast Backbone powered infrastructure. Website content is instantly pulled in with JavaScript, sidestepping the expensive overhead of a full page load. Browsing feels smooth, snappy, and responsive.
