25 New & Free Responsive WordPress Themes

”WordPress.com is the only service of its kind that not only lets you export your data, but gives you an open source package you can run on pretty much any web host out there to run your own instance of the software. So the freedom is really in your hands.” – Matt Mullenweg

WordPress is like the gift that keeps on giving. Currently the 18th largest website in the world, housing a staggering 60 million websites, WordPress is showing no signs of slowing down whatsoever.

As of August 2013, 18.9% of the top 10 million websites use WordPress, cementing it as the number one blogging system in use, and it really is plain to see for anyone why this is the case.

WordPress is insanely customizable and very user-friendly, and that is why, whether you are a professional web designer, someone who is just learning the basics, or even someone who has not the faintest idea about what web design is, you can still use WordPress to create your own, unique website.

An important part of building a website fast is using the right template for the job, which can be pretty hard, seeing as you can’t drop a pin for how many WordPress templates there are out there. To give you a helping hand, we have made yet another list of gorgeous WordPress themes for you tuse use in your projects.

Facebook is the most recognizable and familiar interface on the internet. Millions upon millions of people use Facebook daily to communicate, find and share information. This theme is inspired by Facebook’s own Timeline. It displays your content in similar style to Timeline, and supports six formats of post, namely Gallery, Image, Video, Standard, Quote and Status.

2. Alpha Forte

As user, the way a website runs really affects your opinion of the company or person who is running the website. By the looks of the demo, Alpha Forte runs really smoothly, and it is also a really well thought theme. The search bar is clearly visible on the left, the header area is very discreet, leaving plenty of room for the content to really catch the eye of the user.

3. Flat

We get to see flat design at its very best in this theme. The design is simple, intuitive and minimalistic, with aesthetic being dictated by functionality and practicality. We are not entirely sure what the theme’s name is, though. It could either be Flat, or FREE Flat WordPress Theme for Personal Blog, you decide.

4. Hemingway

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-4

Image source

This is a theme that really looks smart, and in touch with the present, but in a very old-school kind of way. It might just be because it’s called Hemingway, but this theme really has personality to it, with its brilliant header section, great logo and beautiful typography. This is definitely the template to use when making a no none-sense literary blog.

5. Typal

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-5

Image source

Business sites are a different beast to personal blogs or portfolios. Business sites have to look really corporate and serious, but not boring, ’cause boring is bad, even for business. Typal does a great job, keeping things serious, without making them stuck up. The home is the real star attraction, with a great header area and recent posts section.

6. Dapple

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-6

Image source

Self-styled as a great base from which to build on, Dapple offers a simple and intuitive administrative panel, and several configurations, allowing you to mold this theme any which way you want.

7. Wilson

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-7

Image source

Right, enough business themes for now. Wilson is a theme for creative people, that does not sacrifice functionality. It has custom widgets for video, Flickr and Dribble, as well as supporting four different formats of post, styling them differently.

8. Mega Responsive

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-8

Image source

Usually, when something is named so bluntly, you would probably be inclined to avoid it. This theme, however, really does as advertised. It boasts a clan and minimalistic style, is SEO ready and, overall, just looks plain gorgeous.

9. GreatDesign

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-9

Image source

Apparently from the same naming school as the previous entry, GreatDesign is a simple, responsive theme, made with personal blogs in mind. The header section has a great slide feature, and the adding of some small additional features at the bottom (calendar, tags, social profiles and info) makes this a lovely little theme to have.

10. Nova

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-10

Image source

Clean and responsive, Nova is built using the Bootstrap framework, and works on all the modern Browsers, even Internet Explorer (about as good as any site can run in Internet Explorer). The posts are all nicely displayed in a grid format, with and additional grid on the side of the page for things like Archive, Calendar and a search bar.

11. Obscura

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-11

Image source

The name is drawn from “Camera Obscura”, which some of you may already know is a device that projects images of its surroundings on a screen. This device eventually lead to the invention of the camera and photography, so you can probably deduce that this theme was made for photography blogs. It even supports the NextGEN Gallery plugin.

12. Emptilium

Emptilium is a fully customizable HTML5 WordPress theme, and as such is a fantastic theme to have if you want to really put your own mark on the theme, but just don’t have the patience or time required to do all the coding.

13. Fullby

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-13

Image source

Now for another fully customizable theme. Fullby is a great grid theme, built in Bootstrap, that has a few really awesome features: it has a popular and latest post widget, featured content can be displayed in the header, and you can organize your contents in two menus and two sidebars.

14. Zippy

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-14

Image source

One type of business that isn’t nearly as catered to as it should be is small business. Zippy aims to change all that by offering a totally competent small business website theme. It has a simple, clean design, and its perfect if you don’t want to work with code.

15. Tempera

25-New-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-15

Being both responsive and retina-ready, Tblog is a double whammy of awesome.

Appreciating the dedication you put into your website and in depth information you present. It's good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same outdated rehashed information. Wonderful read! I've saved your site and I'm including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
willardnoskowski
You are so cool! I don't suppose I have read something like this before. So wonderful to discover somebody with a few unique thoughts on this subject matter. Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This web site is one thing that's needed on the internet, someone with a little originality!
WillardNoskowski
I've been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of late, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours. It's pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.
willardnoskowski
Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Kudos!
WillardNoskowski
Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Many thanks, However I am encountering troubles with your RSS. I don't know why I can't subscribe to it. Is there anybody having identical RSS problems? Anyone who knows the answer can you kindly respond? Thanks!!
WillardNoskowski
Thanks for the marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading it, you could be a great author. I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and definitely will come back someday. I want to encourage you to ultimately continue your great posts, have a nice afternoon!
