About this collection…

There are many times I have struggled to find a clean and simple WordPress theme for one of my projects – one without all of the clutter, complexities, and built-in features that are so prominent amongst the WordPress themes available today.

A trend has emerged amongst WordPress designers and developers that makes finding a minimalist theme for WordPress somewhat of a difficult process. Catering to customer demands for extensive theme options (including shortcodes and other advanced functionality), the simple and minimal WordPress themes are becoming harder to come by.

Sometimes, all we want is a great-looking and functioning option that doesn’t include a ton of unnecessary and often unused features – just something clean and simple.

Fortunately for those of you who (like me) are searching for that simple-design theme for your next project or site, there are a handful of truly excellent options to choose from that will work for both businesses and bloggers alike.
