Social Media – one of the biggest movements in modern life. It’s affected every last one of us and has connected many of us that previously would not have been possible so it’s no wonder why design and web development too has also cast a glancing eye over Social Media to draw inspiration.
Below I’ve put together a collection of very current WordPress themes that take some inspiration from Social Media and have done an excellent job of using key elements in their own designs. This is a list of some of the best WordPress Themes available to buy on the market right now – i hope you find something you like:
Endless is a clean and stylish infinite scrolling theme, perfect for bloggers and storytellers. Sneek have delicately crafted some awesome HTML5 mixed in some CSS3 and added a bit of jQuery on top to make this beautiful theme just for you. Inspired by Facebook’s Timeline this design is 100% on trend for 2012 and as you can see – I liked it so much that I have even bought and used it for Onset Digital
Liquid Magazine is truly unique theme with fluid grid layout! It will suits best for the blog with creative posts. Different thumbnails height is giving a special “style” to the template, your visitors will love it! Inspired by the ever popular and extremely addictive Pinterest, this theme is again right on the money for 2012 web design.
Brick & Mason is ideal for photographers and/or design studios. It utilises infinite scrolling so users don’t have to leave the page to experience all your talent. This theme also uses the jQuery masonry plugin so the content will fit any browser size. Again inspiration comes from the fantastic social media site Pinterest – used to great effect.
A super easy to use theme for your blog/portfolio with a few basic options and no complication added! Inspiration for this theme clearly comes from Twitter – keeping a flowing feed of short, sharp information with the ability to expand for more information.
Expose is perfectly suited to CSS gallery showcases and personal portfolios. This theme takes its inspiration from a very popular, invite only, design based social media site… you guessed it; Dribbble.com The layout is almost identical and serves a perfect purpose, to showcase work and to gain ratings on it.
