    best-free-wordpress-themes

    Some of the best free WordPress themes will take the design of your blog or website to a whole new level  … if you can find them. How to locate a great  WordPress theme is like panning for gold. Every now and then, your patience is rewarded and you find a free theme that just shines head and shoulders above the rest; a rare nugget that feels like it could almost be a premium theme if the author wanted it to be.

    This crop of WordPress themes moves the “free line” closer to Premium than ever before. Regular readers will know that late last year I featured “413 Best Free WordPress Themes” which although cool, felt like overload. I mean, sifting through 413 WordPress themes is no small task. So with this round up, I’ve saved you some time and handpicked what I feel are some of the best free WordPress themes currently available.

    So lets get this show on the road! Let me start with a free theme that I liked immediately.

    Some don’t know about free hosting for WordPress blogs.  I mean, if you are in the business of designing and developing sites or you’re just savvier than the average Joe then yeah, you’ll know you can host a WordPress blog for free.

    Premium Icon Set

    Sunday, March 15th, 2009

    It’s not just their premium icon set that we like about the team over at Function … we dig pretty much everything they put their hands to.  They get what good clean design is all about and to go along with their free icons set they’ve released a sweet set of premium icons which are priced to sell.

    Free Texture Downloads

    Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

    Some of you may already know that I’m chronic.  When it comes to projects I’ve got to have  a few on the go at any given time or I get crazy bored.  One of the newest projects I’m involved with is TopTextures.com … a site where you can download free textures for use on commercial and personal projects. Being a photoshop guy at heart, I love having good stock to work with but with sites like iStock (who’ve been jacking their prices over the last couple years) I started feeling like my wallet was getting hammered just to get a small collection of decent textures together.

    So I cooked up the TopTextures.com project and put together a small team to make it happen.  The site is looking wicked and we’re almost ready to open it up for private access.  If you want free access to some killer textures you can sign up for our private beta. We’re only taking on 100 beta testers on a first come, first serve basis so if you want to add some premium stock textures to your list of creative assets, then you’ll want to sign up quick before the 100 spots are taken.
