8 Premium Responsive WordPress Themes

 

Responsive web design a hot topic right now especially because it is becoming more common for site to be viewed on mobile devices. According to Smashing Magazine, “Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.”

What this means is that the design will scale for different screen sizes and gadgets rather than a new design and layout being needed for each device.

Here are 8 premium responsive themes for WordPress

The Themes

Blocco, by Press75, is $75. You can also purchase the all theme package, which provides access to all current and future themes, for $400. 20% of this is donated to charity.

Buro, by WooThemes, is $70 and includes two additional themes. For $150 you can get three bonus themes and the PSD files. You can also sign up for the Theme Club Membership.

Argentum, also by WooThemes, is a theme for the WooCommerce plugin. WooCommerce is free but this theme costs $70 and includes two additional themes. For $150 you can get three bonus themes and the PSD files. You can also sign up for the Theme Club Membership.

Responsive, by Templatic, has a standard license for $65 and a developer’s license for $99. They are currently having a special on their all theme membership until October 15th. You can get access to all themes for $199, which is $100 off the standard price.

The Driskill Child Theme, by StudioPress, is $24.95 and requires the Genesis Framework, which is $79.95

Good Minimal, available at Themeforest, is $35 for a regular license.

Reveal, by Theme Trust, is a responsive portfolio theme. It costs $49.

Have you thought about using a responsive theme on your site? While they are still fairly new, I do think this is the way design will be going.
