It’s probably safe to say that the majority of free themes aren’t worth bothering with, either because of bad design or hidden (malicious) code. However, if you know where to look, there are plenty of excellent themes. This is a collection of the best free responsive WordPress themes from trusted providers. I hope you find something you like!

The color scheme, white, grey, with hints of orange, is classic. The homepage has a responsive slider, underneath which reside 5 blocks, easily customizable, including the icons. Then you’ve got recent work, recent news, and a widgetized footer.
