Themes of the Month

This month I’ve had some excellent themes to choose from and had a tough time narrowing them down!

In this edition of our Themes of of the Month series we’re all about clean, simple design that transfers well to tablets and mobile devices.

They are all simple to use and customize ensuring that you can easily convey a unique style and brand on your site.

Whether you’re showcasing images, videos, blog posts, or all of the above, one of these designs will be the perfect fit for you. Enjoy!

There are plenty of presentation, widget and typography options to allow you to give your site a really unique feel, as well as loads of hooks and filters to extend and customize Highwind via plugins and/or a child theme.

    Hey Tom, can you please do a list of top plugins for the EU Cookie Directive. I always find myself searching for a Cookie Directive plugin for WordPress because there seems to be a lack of quality plugins that work well with sites and dont cause extra issues – be nice to see a list on here and see what is what. Let me know if this is something you feel could be useful as I see the lists you made before as very handy to see what is being developed and used out there. Cheers

    1. Tom Ewer

      I’ll give this some thought — thank you for the suggestion!
