I can’t recall how I stumbled upon this, but Vertical Rhythm is a site that has a couple WordPress templates available for download. These are templates adapted from two Swiss design pieces; the publication Neue Grafik and typographic poster by Josef MÃ¼llerâ€“Brockmann.
I’m not going to say go nuts and download these, but I do think they’re pretty cool. It’s always interesting to see the grid for a print piece transform directly into a web grid.
Lately a lot of people have asked me where I got my theme template. The answer to that is that I made it myself. If you aren’t wanting to do that, you could download a very simple theme that is bare essentials and build up from that.
