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, impressive works see the light of day.
Today we are glad to release Glassical — a free professional WordPress-theme created by Abdullah Ibrahim2. This theme was designed with the main focus being on typography, clean look and simplicity. Hopefully, you will be able to use it in your projects or at least use it as a foundation for your next projects. The theme is released especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers.
Download the theme for free! Link
The theme is released under GPL. You can use it for all your projects for free and without any restrictions. Please link to this article if you would like to spread the word. You may modify the theme as you wish. The theme supports the WordPress 2.8 nested comment system and it is also customized for the WP Pagenavi plugin. Also, Cufón is used for embedding the Nevis font into the theme.
