In the past couple of years, the ways in which a person can produce content and promote themselves online has increased almost exponentially. One of the more popular tools in this genre has been Tumblr. Sporting a clean interface and a good set of features, Tumblr gives the user a clean, easy-to-use experience and the ability to share multiple types of content.
But once you’ve chosen to go with this platform, you need to style it. And unless you’re a designer yourself, creating your own theme can be an exercise in futility. But not too worry — the team at Tumblr and the Tumblr community in general has you covered. You can head on over to the Tumblr theme garden and select one of the great themes from there.
Here at the Web.AppStorm headquarters, we’ve been slavishly poring over the available themes to come up with a list of what we think are the hottest, most unique designs for your Tumblr site. Whether you’re looking to customize an existing theme or simply use one as it is, starting with any of these is a good way to go.
Bringing up fond childhood memories, this theme makes a play on the classic line of books for kids.
Slightly zany, this theme is fun and well designed.
One of the better themes with two columns, Cavalcade has a polished feel. Your stream of posts will flow through both columns, which alone will make your site stand out from the norm.
Another theme with good polish, Munich is a darker look that is attractive in its simplicity.
You have to like this typeface if you’re going to like this theme. We do — this one is unique in its starkness, but the type and a good use of drop shadows give it a nice finish.
The key to this theme is the great use of icons to distinguish the different types of posts. It is also quite easy to customize this theme, especially in regards to the colors.
Designed by the estimable Cameron Kenly Hunt, Mac Envy is one of the first freely available Tumblr themes. Modeled after the iPhone interface, the timelessness of this theme still stands out and makes it one of the best.
A very unique theme due to the columns hugging the sides of your browser window, 101 stands out amongst the other free themes. Click the link for the full effect.
Somewhat similar in look to the Fluid design, Innovate is also very polished and nicely breaks up the different types of content.
A softer look, the April theme is chock full of the little touches that add to the overall design. A solid option.
I love the feel of this theme. No dark content please — Godlike Bliss is a happy place and a good option for happy people.
So head on over to the theme garden and find the theme that suits your fancy.
