Back in Black: Introducing Eclipse, a Free WordPress Theme

Eclipse is an example of an effective free WordPress theme with a black background and dark colour palette.

In this video I take a look at an excellent free WordPress theme called Eclipse, an example of a theme that puts dark backgrounds, colours and fonts to effective use.

With so much emphasis in the theme world on so-called “clean” and “minimal” design, and a fetish for “whitespace”, it's all too easy to lose sight of the fact that other colour combinations can create just as effective designs.

This is an ode to black and I draw parallels with a couple of professional portfolio websites, created by professional designers, in which dark tones are put to powerful use.

Go check out the demo version of the Eclipse WordPress theme then let me know what you think about this theme and whether you have a particular preference for one colour palette over another.
