Introducing AlienWP: A Source for Free and Beautiful Responsive WordPress Themes

Responsive WordPress themes have been popping up everywhere during the first part of 2012. I’d like to introduce you to a new theme provider that has the art of the minimalist, responsive WordPress theme down to a refined science.

AlienWP was created by Galin Simeonov and he is the sole designer and developer. His themes are clean and elegant and so far all of them are free to download.

These are lightweight, fast themes that are not loaded down by tons of unnecessary options. AlienWP themes are built using the Hybrid Core framework.

Documentation and tutorials are freely available for each of the themes offered on AlienWP.

The AlienWP themes commonly feature:

  • Fluid, responsive layout
  • Custom front page template
  • Custom Menus
  • 5 Flexible widget areas (sidebars)
  • Theme settings
  • Built-in Breadcrumbs
  • Advanced widgets
  • Custom background
  • Lightbox
  • Child-theme friendly

Currently AlienWP is offering three free themes, all of which are responsive and will look fantastic on any desktop screen or a mobile device.

These themes follow the latest WordPress coding standards so you can be assured that they’re safe to use on your site. Please note that they require a minimum of WordPress version 3.3, PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0. Head on over to AlienWP to check out the themes and live demos to see them in action.
