Onward: A WordPress Theme for Photography and Other Creative Work

by Tom Kenny (@tkenny)

Earlier this year, I started selling WordPress themes. The main reason was because I was working with WordPress on a daily basis in my day job, so I thought I could offer something of value by selling themes of my own as well as improving my WordPress knowledge. The two themes I have sold so far have performed surprisingly well, much better than I expected but I haven’t offered another one for sale for about 7 months. I’ve learnt so much from my first two themes and I want that to really be obvious the first time you look at Onward.

It’s by far the best theme I’ve created.

Less is More

I’ve simplified the theme options to only a single page:

The result now is the theme is much easier to use than any theme I’ve made before and doing so has also allowed me to focus my time on the design. I’ve focused heavily on creating a unique design and you won’t see a similarly designed WordPress theme available anywhere on the internet. I haven’t come across one at least. The asymmetrical grid design really allows the content to shine. Onward is a blog at heart so I’ve focused heavily on readability too, at multiple widths and tested on multiple devices.

Support Inspect Element

Buying Onward is a by far the best way to support Inspect Element and I really appreciate it.
