2015 Belongs to Powerful WP Themes

Are you wondering what is going to happen with the web design industry this year? You’re not the only one who is. I will go out on a limb here and assume that the trend of using large image or video backgrounds on websites will stick around for a while, and generate some clever new ways to optimize images for fast loading, or responsive re-sizing.

Even further, I believe that WP themes are getting stronger than ever, as they work to provide web designers with more and more resources. Think about type kits. Didn’t fancy typefaces and fonts use to go hand in hand with big budgets? Well, time has opened doors for the average WordPress user. Right now, every self-respecting theme comes with type kits, and some of them even include multiple weights and styles.

 

What the Wind of Change May Bring

The truth is that no one knows for sure what waits just around the corner. However, we can speculate about possible events by drawing on past experiences. Do you remember when it was unthinkable to set about creating websites without developers? Or, when coming up with a responsive website felt like taking the first steps on the moon?

Fast-forward to the present and look around. We have platforms and themes that consider responsiveness a God-given commandment, and generate W3C-validated code for your designs. We live in the Golden Age of web design, with brilliant shortcodes and a designer-friendly front office.

Of course, utility is ultimately in the eye of the beholder, so I’m not going to preach about the themes I’ve found, and how heavenly they are in every situation. But I did my share of comparing and analyzing.

What I came up with is over a dozen themes that I intend to use for my client projects in the near future. If you’re curious what they are, scroll downwards.
