These are the very best premium and free WordPress themes of 2015. These are all free themes that emerged during this year. These are not just a common selection of themes that you can use this year, these are the themes that were made this year. These are oven hot themes!
Although the year is not over yet, but enough free resources have come out that we can make posts about them. And that’s why I’ve been making collections of the best resources of 2015. First I published a collection of free libraries and tools and then just last week we published resources for designers.
I’ll be continuing with my collections of the best resources of this year. And mind you, these posts will keep on getting regular updates as the year progresses and as more resources come into market.
Free WordPress Themes 2015
Impressive is a creative blog theme. It says on its description that it’s a blog theme but I feel it is a multipurpose theme that can be customized for any use.
It is fairly simple but the use of typography is what I really liked here.
This is a modern WordPress theme ideal for personal blogs. It is not as huge as Impressive (above) but it is a lot cuter.This theme has a personal touch that many themes lack.
This is not one of those themes that you’ll be using regularly because it is suitable for only a very few projects, but where it becomes suitable, it works great.
This is a truly minimalist WordPress theme. It is designed for portfolios and it will work only for portfolios, nothing else. It is designed to be customized and turned into any other kind of website.
What I like about this theme is that it is extremely lightweight and it gives full focus on the work, not its own designing. That’s what sometimes happens with portfolio themes. Often, portfolio themes show off themselves so much that they take the spotlight off from our actual work.
Simp is a WordPress theme ideal for creative agencies. It is a business theme but it is customized for a creative agency.
It contains four different layouts with ideally designed pages for portfolios and services.
This is a made-in-china theme, I mean literally. The creators are Chinese so the demo page is also in Chinese.
This is a minimal blog theme. I find it search engine friendly because it is pretty speedy. However, I do not find a modern design in it nor any the layout is too jaw-dropping. It’s a simple theme that’s useful, but not really cool.
This is a full-fledged magazine or news website theme. It contains runs lots of queries on the home page but of course, it has to display lots of content so it is natural.
Make sure you use it only for the websites that get updated multiple times a day, or at least once everyday. For websites with fewer updates, it is not right.
Premium WordPress Press Themes 2015
Costs: $69 per year (personal). $89 per year (developer). $249 one time fee, all perks included.
Divi is the flagship product of ElegantThemes.com. It is a true premium theme power packed with so many high-end features that it just spoils a web developer. With thousands of layouts and endless customization options, it is one of the best choices if you are a professional web developer.
For this theme only, I’m using full page screenshot. Check out the picture and you’ll understand why I’m changing course.
Just like Divi, Monstroid one of the prime products of TemplateMonster.com. The first version of this theme just came online but it has been creating a buzz all around.
I personally haven’t had any experience of working on Monstroid but it does seem pretty cool. If you are thinking of buying Divi, I think you should give this theme a look as well.
Car Workshop Theme
Now we’re back to regular themes. The above two themes where designed purely for professional web designers and developers. They are gargantuan themes, for every project, they need loads of customization. But the themes we will be looking from here onward are the good old fashion themes.
To say, this is a car repair workshop’s template but it can be customized for other businesses as well. I’m featuring it because I liked its modern card-based design.
This is a pretty cool theme for professional photographers. I think this theme can also work for creative agency businesses but it is primarily made for photographers only and customizing it wouldn’t be that easy.
From here, I’m sharing latest, but highly rated themes on TF.
