We’re excited to announce the release of a new theme, the Studio Theme. You can view the demo here. Our latest addition to the theme collection was created to not have the initial appearance of a WordPress theme. As a designer, the only issue I have with WordPress themes is that most of them are instantly identifiable as a WordPress theme. Whether it’s an obvious blog layout, overwhelming amounts of content, a long horizontally scrolling home page or what I have dubbed “layer cake” design, most WordPress themes have a distinct appearance that is saturating the internet. The Studio Theme provides something different.

In case you haven’t heard the big news, WordPress 3.1 was released earlier this week. The latest update for the greatest website management platform is packed with new features. We are particularly excited about the new Post Formats. We are proud to say that we have tested all of our themes with WordPress 3.1 without any issues.
Organic Themes are fully compatible with the latest version of WordPress.
We encourage everybody to upgrade their WordPress platform. However, you should be aware that while our themes are compatible with WordPress 3.1, that doesn’t mean the plugins you are using are fully compatible. If you experience any issues after your upgrade, try deactivating your plugins to isolate the issue.

Organic Themes is proud to announce our one year anniversary! In celebration of this milestone, we have redesigned our main website and brand. Needless to say, it’s been an extremely exciting year. We can’t thank our amazing customers enough for the success of our past year.
We designed our new site purposefully with a very clean approach. It was created to provide a better user experience, and to be navigated more easily than our previous site. We developed several custom post types to manage content more efficiently within the site — hopefully making it even easier to update with new content and themes. Several minor bells and whistles have been added to the design and development to really give it a polished feel. In addition, we have updated our showcase with several more examples of people using our themes!
