65 Fresh WordPress Themes

Although many people are building and releasing WordPress themes, let`s admit, some not as good as others, very few of them know what makes a good WordPress theme. It`s all about design, functionality and versatility.
Although design trends are changing each month, a well crafted wp theme must stand for at least a few years, until the user will start thinking to upgrade to a newer one. A good wordpress theme has to be able to fit on any type of screen, small or big. And last but not least, the user who`s making use of the theme has to build whatever website he wants, even if is portfolio, product presentation or business website.
I consider these themes to be complete. They can fit any niche, from creative agencies to corporations, their design is great and the code is so clean that you don’t have to touch a single line of code to customize them. Let us know your opinion about this themes and about wordpress in general!
With these key factors in mind, I gathered the most versatile, beautiful and fully functional wordpress themes built. They`re not a few (65 more precisely) and they’re great!
