Choosing a WordPress theme for your new website can be harder than it seems. With thousands of themes on the market and more coming out every day, there’s no way you can weigh the pros and cons of each on your own. It’s easy to fall into the “paralysis by analysis” trap when looking through all the various themes available to you.
Luckily, we here at Watermelon have a lot of experience dealing with this issue. As a Portland web design agency with over ten years in the business, we’ve worked with a countless number of different themes. Some were great, and we kept using them in future products. Others were terrible, and we vowed to never install them on another website again. In the end, we compiled a core group of outstanding themes that we knew would keep our clients happy.
Using that knowledge, we put together a short quiz to help potential customers easily find a WordPress theme that meets their needs. We analyzed eleven of our favorite themes, making sure to include options for every type of website we work with. We scored them based on their individual benefits so that we could hone in on exactly what each theme brings to the table.
If you’re looking for a WordPress theme to use for your project, give our quiz a shot. Fill out the questionnaire below, and watch the list of our favorite themes re-organize itself before your eyes. We’ll show you the best match based on your answers, and also rank the others from best to worst based on your individual needs.
