Keep It Simple Student

Clean, professional, and simple is key when it comes to WordPress theme design. Consider the theme in Figure 8.6.

This template has generated over $45,000 in sales in roughly ten months. Though the design is visually quite simple, it's the detail that makes it such a big seller: multiple color schemes, numerous widgetized regions, child themes, custom CSS for popular plugins, custom fonts, and the list goes on. By keeping the design simple and appealing to the masses, the author, vfxdude, has enjoyed considerable success.
