Check out my latest new WordPress theme called Koi (view demo). The design is based on my current theme at N.Design Studio. It has threaded comments, multi-level drop down menus, social media buttons, one sidebar widget and three footer widgets. The theme also includes an option where you can config the menu, favicon, social media buttons, and footer tracking code.


Please also spare a minute and complete the following survey.

Did you make the Koi theme? Is it premium or free? I have a client who might be interested? Thanks in advance.

Have a great day!

Mar 30, 2010 at 5:39 pm

Koi looks awesome! Thanks for sharing.

I think it’s pretty clear from the poll: You should definitely make some sort of portfolio theme where the blog isn’t the main front page, but maybe just a small widget of recent posts.

a beautiful them. but this theme has limitations it can not used to commercial sites

Mar 31, 2010 at 3:27 am

Think it need some IE6 work. Menu ends up all the way at the bottom in IE6 on my computer. And before you reply, I agree that a website doesn’t have to look perfect in IE6, but it should at least “work”.

@ Azul : nice catch!

It’s sad that not much clients’ designs could use water color. :(

Nick, this is crazy. I didn’t think you would release the theme ;) But It is definitely amazing. Will do a writeup about this on wpbeginner soon.

Apr 7, 2010 at 10:10 am

This theme looks great. I love the color choices used, very earthy, which I think represents a Koi (the title) well. I think the simplicity of the layout with the elegant pattern makes for a very classy feel to the theme. This would be a good blog theme for an employee of a company, or even for a personal blog. The option page is well done, as it allows you to input social media buttons in the theme itself, rather than having them look dysfunctional and not in a place that works well for the design.
