Otis is well-suited for personal blogging. It provides a polished, modern user experience. The default templates include an opinionated header with large type as well as straightforward post and page templates, which are particularly useful for those who don’t want to include images on their site. This theme is focused on simplicity and readability, with a clean and uncluttered layout that allows readers to easily navigate content.

Exmoor is a refreshed, modernized version of the popular Exford theme. We kept that theme’s general vibe while updating the layout and typography. We scraped the center-aligned header, significantly shortened the height of the Cover Block (which makes the headline seem bolder and stronger), and decluttered the homepage overall to make it cleaner and less repetitive. This is a great theme that will serve a variety of uses for bloggers, creators, small businesses, and WordPressers of all stripes.

The design featured in Cortado is simple and elegant. The color palette and typography work together to deliver a subtle style, especially well-suited to restaurants and coffee shops. Single post pages are constructed to work well for short and medium-length copy—which can stimulate succinctness and more frequent publishing.

Freddie uses a full-screen background image to captivate the viewer with an immersive introductory moment. The design is straightforward and utilizes a semi-bold typography with a tighter-than-usual line height. This theme is perfect for creators who want to showcase visual projects.
