After 20 years of publishing (tidbits) on the Internet and helping others do the same, here are the four best WordPress theme shops that I have encountered and that have had the staying power to never (ever) leave my radar. Don’t want a headache but feel the urge to publish things online? Chosen from several hundred theme wranglers I have encountered and have been following for ages, these four are simply the top of the heap and have been in the top spot seemingly forever.
If you buy a theme from these guys (and the one single gal), you can just kick off your shoes for the rest of your time on the Net and feel warm and snugly. Always (!) up to date, with their customers in mind, and far removed from the bloated dreck you encounter right and left nowadays, you simply cannot go wrong with the four theme shops below.
- 1st place: Ellen Bauer’s and Manuel Esposito’s Elmastudio
- 2nd place: Mike McAllister’s Array and Jonathan Atkinson’s cr3ativ
- 3rd place: ThemeTrust
There are many other great designers, programmers and innovative developers around, but I find myself turning to the above four exceptional designers and programmers time and again when I need the best and most reliable, the ones that produce with a serious and educated eye on design, tight coding and altogether superb craftsmanship. Buy with confidence.
