The Theme Foundry started with a free WordPress theme, Vigilance, back in 2008. Since that day, we’ve focused mostly on premium WordPress themes. Today, we’re getting back to our roots.

Free, and our best yet.

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.

Over the past two months, we’ve been working hard with the extremely talented Dave Ruiz of Foundation Six to build our latest WordPress theme. The team was given the task of translating Dave’s original and visually rich design to the browser. After many long hours of tweaking and polishing, we’re happy to announce the release of the absolutely stunning Avid photography theme.

Every detail of Avid is optimized and carefully crafted with photographers in mind. The theme gives you the power to quickly and easily showcase your images, galleries, videos, and blog posts in a beautiful and responsive layout.

Presenting Portfolio

by Andy Adams on April 26, 2012 / 5 comments

Every theme at The Theme Foundry starts out as an idea that is discussed and then put to paper by our designers. We review and refine the design, and then we build it out in HTML so we can see the design come to life in the browser. From there, every theme is constructed from the ground-up (no frameworks) as we try to build upon the successes (and failures) of our previous themes.
