Top 10 Theme Design

Ranking in this category is editor selected.

The winners in this category are not just theme developers, they are also artists. They probably spend more time working on the graphic design than the coding.

We look at a couple of things to decide if the theme designers have what it takes to create themes with top notch graphical design.

1. Header image

The header is the most important factor to determine if a theme has a good graphic design. Not only should the header design catch visitors’ attention, it should also blend well with the rest of the theme design.

2. Color

The theme color should go with the image and not too obtrusive. Bright color works well on most themes but if used incorrectly, it will strain the eyes.

3. Contrast

To make a theme stand out, the use of high-contrast shades for various elements are important. A good example with the right use of contrast is having a light, soothing background with dark lettering.

4. Font and Readability

The most commonly used fonts in web design are Verdana, Arial and Tahoma. The right use of font has to combine with the theme design and right font size to make the whole theme readable.

5. Placing of elements

Is your page well-designed such that the most important things catch the roving eye first? And it is not just size, but also positioning, that determines this.

The followings are the top 10 theme providers who excel in theme graphic design. Check them out!
