Although WordPress has made it very easy to create a custom WordPress theme, but it still takes time to learn and build it. So I've created a Base theme based on the free Basic theme from Themify. I've stripped out the framework and the extra functions that you might not need. It includes only the basic styling, responsive design, custom menus, and widgetized sidebar. This Base theme is intended to let you build your custom themes using it as a foundation. The main goal is to save your time and simplify the work flow. It is great for non-coders and quick client works.
