Free Professional PSD Template: BlueMasters


In this post we release a yet another freebie: BlueMasters, a free PSD template, designed by Wendell Fernandes1 and released for Smashing Magazine and its readers. As usual, the theme is free to use in private and commerical projects.

BlueMasters is a dark, sexy, custom theme that has a solid, professional look and a very simple structure. You can access all files and layers used in a well organized structure and naming convention, making it easier for slicing the template or modifying it. BlueMasters can be customized to fit your business brand as well as your clients’ websites.


Download the theme for free!

The theme is released for free. You can use it for all your projects for free and without any restrictions. Please link to this article if you want to spread the word. You may modify the theme as you wish.


Template / Pages

The templates set consists of 5 pages that provide multiple page template design options:

  • Home
  • About Us
  • Portfolio
  • Blog Posts
  • Blog Post Selection
  • Contact

“Home” page template

“About Us” page template

“Home” page template

“Portfolio” page template

“Blog” page template

“Contact Us” page template

Behind the design

As always, here are some insights from the designers:

BlueMasters was created to help designers get started with a nice, solid and clean design. Looking at the many templates out there, we thought that it would be a great idea to incorporate some of the common elements used in other templates, and include them all in one single template, giving you a complete package of goodies. We hope this template can be of a great service to you, your business or your clients!

Thank you, Wendell. We appreciate your work and your good intentions.

    Fantastic service, I love Smashing!

    The zip file is broken :(

  9. 664

    Can’t seem to download this, the download keeps crashing. Download manager won’t resume it either. Does anyone have an alternative link?

  10. 715

    Thanks for sharing this, smashing magazine and thanks to Wendell for taking time to create this wonderful work

    However I can’t download it as well. Been trying for three times.
    The download stop when it almost reach the end. I’m using windows operating system. Can someone that has already been able to download the file, be kind enough to upload it elsewhere? It will be much appreciated. Thanks

  11. 766

    I see lots of people, like me, love the template but are not familiar with how people start with templates like this and get a web site on the other end (html, css, drupal, wordpress, etc.)

    It would be an interesting an educational post for us beginning designers to discuss the workflow different experienced designers use to take a PSD design like this and make it live.

  12. 817

    Thanks a lot for sharing. Great work…carry on…

  13. 868

    This is by far the best free template I ever saw !!!
    thanks for sharing :D

    Nice PSD layout. Converted it to HTML5 layout and made my own mini-cms with PHP and ‘site like’ styling for backend.

    Can this be used in an open source CMS project (with proper attribution, of course)?

  25. 1582

    The zip file is broken :( The archive is either in unknown format or damaged

  26. 1633

    I guess the Smashing server isn’t feeling well right now. I’m also not able to get a complete download. Waaaahh.

  27. 1684

    I take it no one has succeeded in converting this .psd for WordPress as yet…

  28. 1735

    Great Source! Anyone there, who has converted the PSD to WordPress?

  29. 1786

    Hey, im getting a broken download.(twice) whats up?

  30. 1837

    I love the template, i would realy like a working html version of it!

  31. 1888

    Sweet baby jeebus, this is so awesome. If I were a man, I’d have jizzed my pants. Probably twice. I’m a lady, so I held it in. OHMYGODTHISISSOAWESOME.

    Wait. I’m sure you can tell I’m a noob. Can I use this for WordPress? Say yes. If not, who do I have to kiss to make it happen? MAKE IT HAPPEN.

  32. 1939

    I love it so much!

  33. 1990

    Hey guys, fist of all love the template, really nice done.

    I read a lot of comments talking about a wordpress theme, but that’s it, just talk. So I decided to turn the template into WordPress, is not quite ready yet, but soon.

    You can se the demo on my site and I’ll drop a comment when it’s ready:

  34. 2194

  36. 2296

    Nice work. Im thinking of converting into html using 960 grid css. I will share it once im done :)

  37. 2347

    Hi guys.

    Thanks for such an awesome and beautiful PSD artwork.

    We have sliced all PSDs into valid xHTML strict + css 2.1.

    The sliced template is free to use without any restrictions. so, enjoy!!



    Let us know if you need any help.



  38. 2398

    The download stops and don’t finish at all, I do it many times

  39. 2449

    Hey guys, this page is selling this very same template for $25, that can’t be legal can it? I mean, it’s free right here…

    • 2500

      sure cannot tell exactly what he seems to be selling, is it just the PSDs or the code for either HTML or WP? Doubt very much if it is legal to sell the psds. reading the terms, I am not sure about a coded HTML site or WP site tho., that may be legal to do. but again I really can’t tell what he is selling?

        The above tells me, no, this guy does not have the right to resell the psds, if he is doing that, not sure about HTML or WP themes based on the psds however.
