Tigerpress: A Free WordPress Theme

Following the release of the wordpress.fun theme1 we are glad to release a new professional WordPress-theme and offer it for free download. Tigerpress WordPress theme has 2 columns and provides a simple and very user-friendly Mac-alike interface (design based on Apple’s Tiger Mac OS X).

The main goal behind the design was to create a unique, distinctive, yet simple and user-friendly blog design which emphasizes the content and provides a clear navigation. The theme was designed by 7Graus2 from Portugal together with the editorial team for Smashing Magazine and its readers.

    Why oh why did you take the screenshot on Windows? The font is so messed up on Windows. Why won’t they anti-alias their fonts? It looks so much better and is easier to read.

    I’m not really digging this theme to be honest, could be approved on by far.

    Josh, the AA doesn’t depend on the OS. It depends on the screen. I have Vista on one of my laptops and it has anti-alias.

    Yup, agreed, this theme looks pretty amateurish compared to the usual high quality stuff featured on SmashingMag.

    In its attempt to mimic OS X, I think it’s a beautiful theme but in terms of usability and practicality as a professional theme I think this was a poor choice. I’d love to see a free professional WordPress theme from Smashing Magazine that could actually be used on a business site.

    To AA or not to AA, its all personal preference. I for one think IE’s and Safaris anti aliased text is hideous. You may not.

    Well, to be honest, I don’t understand what’s so cool about that theme. Looks pretty boring to me. Sorry guys but the free WordPress Themes which you have released so far are way ahead this one.

    To above: The anti-aliasing is handled by software – not the screen or the operating system. Windows has a built in OS-wide setting called ClearType, but programs (such as Safari) can override this.

    I agree with most of the above people. I just ain’t feeling the Smashing Magazine quality/vibe with this theme. Sorry Rui Marques, nice try though

    Design of websites can be great, farer mor better than operating systems, this because thousands of thousands of designers are creating more innovative stuff than the designers of various OS. I can understand that OSX is a great system, but can’t understand the point: why use an operating system graphic style for a website, making it look so boring?

    Tiger wordpress theme in the age of Leopard? Looks nice, but outdated design, no originality…
