I just put out my 15th theme at ThemeFurnace - called "Gridster" it is a minimal grid-based theme suitable for photographers, artists or designers. The homepage is simply a responsive grid which displays your images, on clicking through it displays a large version of the image with accompanying text.

Gridster usually costs $49 or the developer club membership is $99 which includes all themes but I'm currently running a summer sale with 60% off all themes or membership!

About The Theme

I really went back to basics with this theme - it's my simplest theme for a while, no custom post types are used in this theme: It's just regular blog posts and the images are handled by the built-in "featured images" function. The layout is clean and minimal with a left-aligned sidebar to keep everything neatly in place.

As with every other ThemeFurnace theme, you get the TF Panel for theme options so you can control the Typography and other general options.

Conclusion

Building this theme was a refreshing change - I enjoyed going back to basics and building a new theme from the ground up, using the underscores theme to start me off (check that out if you need a solid starter theme). I plan to create a few more simpler themes for ThemeFurnace for the next couple of months.I have constructed a free version of Gridster which I have submitted to the repository so I'll link that up once it has been approved.
