WordPress Themes Review

While it’s always nice to start from scratch for projects I’m working on at Lemon Productions, time and budget don’t always allow for that. Or sometimes it’s just a perfect fit for an idea with a theme or plugin that I’ve come across. And in those cases, I turn to WooThemes.

I first discovered WooThemes when I built my first personal portfolio site back in 2008 using their ProudFolio theme. Since then I’ve used a variety of their themes for personal and client work.

Some of My Favourite Themes

Here’s a quick selection of some of my favourite themes WooThemes offers.


Canvas is the theme I usually start with on most projects these days. It’s a great basis to start from and has a ton of customizable options and settings that someone new to WordPress could start with but also a lot of flexibility and power for a more experienced user.


I’ve held off buying Briefed because I don’t want to need to redesign my portfolio site now. But Briefed makes me want to redesign it. Again. But I can’t now. Right?

Must. Not. Buy.

There’s a E-commerce theme available for Briefed if you have digital products you want to sell.


If you’re a photographer, Statua would make a great starting theme with its built-in custom post types for your photos. There’s also a E-commerce child theme for it if you want to try to sell your photos or digital work.


If you need a theme for a business, Simplicity is a great place to start and it’s also got a E-commerce option if you need to sell t-shirts.


Currents would make a great theme for any news and story/article driven website.

I’m actually using this for a podcast called The YXE.

A Note on Reviews and Recommendations

These recommends pages are for products and services that I actually use myself. I won’t recommend something unless I personally am using or have used it.
