This month’s featured WordPress theme is “Desk Space” by Dirty Blue Media.
Desk Space is a clean and nicely executed theme from Dirty Blue Media. It’s simple, tasteful in appearance, and there is plenty of leeway to customize the design.
Looking at the design, you may be able to see why I decided to highlight the theme here: It has a wooden background. (Not just one wooden background, but a choice of three!) I’m always a sucker for a nice wood backdrop in a design. Of course, if you’re not so huge a fan of the image, you could replace it with your own easily enough.
I like the little icons in the top right, though the dynamic DIV they open isn’t necessary in my opinion. It’s a cool effect, but if I was using the theme I would strip it out and link the icons directly to pages. The little photo stack near the About section is neat too, especially since it automatically fills-in your Gravatar.
Overall it’s a nice theme, with plenty of nice little touches, as described on the theme download page. It’s worth a look if you’re in the market for a good free theme.
