Black Magic: A Free WordPress Theme

We love our readers. We respect the hard work of designers and developers across the globe. And we do our best to make the web design community stronger and the Web a little bit prettier. Therefore we ask talented artists and creative professionals to showcase their skills and release something unique and beautiful as a gift to the community. And when designers agree, truly impressive works see the light of day.

Today we are glad to release Black Magic — a free professional WordPress-theme. The theme has 2 columns and is based on grungy wooden textures and has a cool top menu which includes RSS. The psd source file of the logo has also been included in the package. This can be used for any projects and will be useful especially for portfolios. The theme was designed by Gopal Raju2 especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers.

Download the theme for free! Link

You can use the theme for all your projects for free and without any restrictions. However, it’s forbidden to sell or redistribute the theme without both designer’s and Smashing Magazine’s permission — please link to this article if you would like to spread the word. You may modify the theme as you wish, but if you are planning to release your modification, please ask our permission first.

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

Last but not least… Link

We are regularly looking for creative designers and artists. You may not know it yet, but we might feature you in one of our upcoming posts.

    I don’t know why, but I don’t like some details, however it looks like a solid WP template, especially next to many others free templates out there on the net. Keep up the good work Gopal Raju!
