ThemeZilla offers impressive, proffessional and feature-rich theme designs and is one of the most recent premium WordPress theme providers to arrive on the market.
ThemeZilla was founded by designer Orman Clark along with web developer Gilbert Pellegrom, designer Luke Beard and front end developer Mark Southard, and has been running as a company since May 2012. Until then, Orman Clark had worked as part of the development team at AWESEM, the expert WordPress agency based in London. He’s also been a member of the Envato Marketplace for over two years, where, as a theme author, he has reached over $1,000,000 in sales. The ThemeZilla team have a love of WordPress and are committed to designing and developing high quality and affordable themes. As proof, the business has steadily built up 33,000 satisfied customers – and it’s still growing.
The solid ThemeZilla framework offers many additional functions, can be easily customised to give a more individual look and feel, and is simple to use. Extra features include the ability to scale and crop images on the page, the option to change the language of the entire page, and the option use a custom or built in logo.
Almost all themes are now responsive by design, which means your website will adapt to screens on smartphones and tablets. In addition, the themes are cross browser compatible and, in terms of widgets, you can very easily add Twitter, Flickr, videos or commercials to your website. The built-in search engine optimisation option allows you to optimise pages and posts to get ahead in the search engine rankings.
ThemeZilla currently offers 21 premium themes and five plugins, and is constantly working on new designs. The themes are arranged into categories including agency, blog, business, photography, portfolio, responsive and Tumblog, which, in terms of web design, are suitable for beginners and for professionals. Along with each individual theme there is a detailed description, screenshots and a live demo allowing you to get to grips with the theme. There are also regular updates of previously published themes.
In the support forum you can get help from both peers and the professional ThemeZilla team. In addition to the support forum, there is also the theme documentation to help guide you through using your theme.
