Professional WordPress Themes

The Elemental theme for WordPress is a versatile powerhouse. Everyday bloggers can jump right in, configure their options and launch a professional blog. Developers and WordPress consultants using the multi-copy Elemental can rapidly build client sites in a variety of styles and deliver premium websites geared toward any purpose.

Elemental was built by me, Ben Gillbanks, a proffessional web-designer with over 10 years experience in development, as a theme framework for my own WordPress powered website. As such it is constantly being updated, and improved. When new features are added to WordPress they are soon integrated into the theme. I want my site to succeed, and in turn yours can too.

Elemental has had over two years of development put into it and as such is a strong contender in a busy field.

Unlike many WordPress frameworks Elemental was designed to look good without a child theme. In fact I worked closely with Darren Hoyt - who I first partnered with for Mimbo Pro - to give the theme a clean simple elegance.
