Let’s face it, WordPress is not known for beautiful themes anymore. I’m currently leading a small squad of designers tasked with changing that. Our goal is to elevate and diversify the design of themes on WordPress.com.

The themes are meant to be flexible enough to be used for a wide range of users, while opinionated enough to represent that customer’s brand.
