It’s been over a year since I published Which StudioPress Theme is Right for You?, a guide to helping folks figure out the best WordPress theme for their site. Much has changed in that time and I wanted to update you on new themes available for the Genesis Framework and highlight some tried & true StudioPress themes that are still rocking the house.
While there are still loads of child themes directly available from StudioPress, more and more Genesis developers and designers are creating and selling their own themes (myself included!). That means that there are more choices available to you than ever before.

The Best of the Best StudioPress Themes
Having a website that looks good on mobile devices is no longer just a nicety, it’s a necessity if you want a better Google ranking. If you’re considering a new WordPress template, don’t waste your time and money on one that won’t look good on phones and tablets – you’re setting yourself at an immediate disadvantage with search engines.
The good news is that every theme StudioPress releases is mobile responsive and many community designers are moving that direction, too. Each of the themes below is mobile-friendly and ready to make you look good to both users and search engines.
