Of the hundreds of different themes available for a WordPress site, I prefer a responsive design as the overall type, with a layout that functions with image-heavy content. I want to keep the overall look fairly simple and to facilitate viewing on mobile devices without content extending outside the view frame.
I intend to keep the layout at one or two columns since three would start to look too cluttered based on the type of content I’ll be posting.
The images are going to be primarily white backgrounds with small images to one side, meaning a dark background will give the viewer a better feel for the overall layout of the cachet if the white of the image doesn’t fade into a white background on the site.
The three favorites so far are:
- The Hero theme for its uncluttered feel and amount of window scalability
- The Fresh and Clean theme for the same reasons as the Hero, but with a better list format for the image thumbnails
- The Book Lite theme for an even more spartan layout
