3 New Responsive and Minimal Free WordPress Themes for September 2012

What can I say, I’m a sucker for free WordPress themes. I guess that’s what comes with being an old-school WordPress user. So in hommage of all those brave web designers producing free themes for the benefit of the WordPress community, I decided to make a video about 3 new responsive and minimal free WordPress themes.

These themes have several things in common, firstly they’re all responsive layouts so they will automatically resize to fit whatever screen size you’re using them on. Secondly, they are all very minimal, clean and bright themes with a professional feel. They are best suited for personal blogs. Thirdly, they are completely free to download and manipulate. Each one has been released under a GPL license. Finally, they have all been released on the WordPress.org theme repository. This is important because it means they’ve been checked for malicious scripts. So use them with confidence.
