More New Themes On the Way

Although we’re busy pushing pixels and writing beautiful code, we wanted to share a quick update with what we’ve been up to. Not only are we currently working on the new Press75 redesign, we also have a few new themes in development. We’re tackling a redesign of a few of our older themes, to bring them into the new era of Press75. We’re very excited to see some of our old themes in a new light. We’ve chosen to redesign both TV Elements and Massive News and they are looking sweet! Take a look and stay tuned for more updates on new theme releases and other sweet deals by subscribing to our newsletter here.

New Audio Theme Coming Soon

This has been a truly defining factor with Press75 themes in the past, and with a new audio theme on our docket we were looking at unique new ways to integrate audio into WordPress. This new theme will be aimed at music-focused sites; for bands, record labels, and music venues. The design is simple, modern and sharp, with unique integrations of custom post-types for managing your Music, your Gigs and events, and your Merch. The theme is packed with awesome features, nice animations, a custom audio player, and we believe that users passionate about music, bands, and shows will really dig the features!

Introducing the new On Demand theme

We are very excited to announce our latest theme update for On Demand. We’ve kept everything that was great about the original On Demand theme and completely overhauled the design and code. The theme is now fully responsive, integrated with the Theme Customizer, and it’s pretty awesome. See for yourself!

Responsive
The original On Demand theme was created in 2009, when responsive web design wasn’t even a major practice, so we’ve gone ahead and created the new On Demand theme to be fully responsive. Responsive on desktop, tablet, and mobile — ready to make your site look beautiful on all devices.

Theme Customizer
Changing code can be difficult. Another one of our goals with the new On Demand theme was to integrate a nice amount of options of things for you to change and customize within the theme. These options are easily accomplished with the Theme Customizer and include; logo, main theme colors, background image, social media links, and selecting homepage carousel speed, transition and category.

Video
Like the original On Demand theme, we’ve integrated a nice, simple video Lightbox display for when your site visitors click to play videos from the homepage. Not to mention all of your videos are fully mobile and tablet compatible!

Pick up the new On Demand theme here!

A New Beginning for Press75

For the past 6 years, I have been creating WordPress themes for Press75 — a brand I had established in 2008 to explore my growing interest in web design and development. As an entrepreneur, I’m extremely proud of how Press75 has grown and its long-standing place in the WordPress community, but I’ve realized it’s time for me to focus on new avenues and interests. With that in mind, I’ve been searching for a suitable new owner with the assets and passion required to build on a brand I know has so much more to give. Today, I’m very happy to announce that Press75 will continue to grow and deliver quality WordPress products under a talented team lead by Travis Totz — director and co-founder at WerkPress (and Westwerk) and good friend of mine.

Introducing Cards

We would like to take a second to introduce a new theme called “Cards”. Cards is a simple magazine-style theme that allows you to feature beautiful photography and text side by side. Cards is also a responsive theme which means that it scales and looks perfectly on any device, no matter the size. For more information, check out the details and demo here.


Introducing So Simple

In a flooded marketplace of overly complex WordPress themes, the So Simple theme has been created for those looking for something different. By eliminating all of the unnecessary elements found in typical WordPress themes, So Simple allows you to focus on beautiful words and nothing more. So Simple is minimalism at its best, providing a distraction-free writing and reading experience.


Introducing Clear News

Clear News marks the first of hopefully many new themes on Press75 representing a slightly simplified direction. Clear News was designed to get out of the way and provide a medium for your users to easily access your content on any device. Use it for text, photos, video, and more … essentially the perfect theme for any blog, news, or magazine website. There is an increasing majority of people consuming content on the go via tablets and phones. Clear News includes a “mobile first” responsive design which means that it was designed specifically for mobile consumption, but scales perfectly to full-screen consumption as well.


Introducing AudioTheme

A few years ago, Luke McDonald joined Jason Schuller as part of the Press75 team. Since then Luke created a couple themes geared around bands, artists, and musicians with an emphasis on integrating an audio solution using default WordPress features and functionality. Having successfully done this along with showcasing video, gigs, photos, and more, it was apparent there needed to be a better way to build and manage this type of content. Continue reading


Refreshing

Welcome to the all new Press75. We’ve been working hard to make things a bit more simplistic for all of our current and new customers and we hope you like what we’ve come up with. So, browse around and let us know what you think by sending us an email or just ping us on Twitter or Facebook.


About New Themes

Now that we’re finished with the new site, we can get back to making some delicious new WordPress themes. We actually have quite a few new themes in the works that you might be interested in. For starters, a brand new responsive magazine/news/media theme called “Clear News” is almost finished, and we think you’re going to love it. Next up, a new responsive WooCommerce theme that’s going to make a dent in the commerce scene. Follow us on Twitter to see teasers for both these and other new themes we’re working on.
