I’ve been a huge fan of The Theme Foundry themes ever since I helped out with the Shelf theme. I know how Drew runs his business, and his themes are some of the best premium themes out there. That being said, you may have noticed the new look my site is sporting. Thanks to Drew Strojny in a collaboration with Ryan Essmaker, I’m now running their newest theme release, Anthem.. I made a simple child theme so that I could make some customizations so any differences you see in my theme from the standard Anthem are those customizations.
When I first saw the theme, I thought it looked clean, and being that I know Drew, I pushed out a tweet for it. Then I started looking at it a little further. Responsive design is gaining so much popularity these days and The Theme Foundry has been consistently approaching the their designs with a fresh perspective. Props to Ryan for his great work on this theme.
I feel exactly the same way as Tim. I have struggled to find a clean theme that feels personalized. By simply adding a quick photo of me to the logo area, I was able to do exactly that. Once I saw it, I knew I had to have it.
The theme demo features some playful, full-size photos by Mr. Sanchez that show the effectiveness of big photography.
On a side note, I’m trying out a new plugin to create this post. It’s called Dashter, and it has huge potential. It’s built by my buddy Dave Cole from the #ocwp.
