StudioPress Themes

Your Guide to Mobile Responsive StudioPress Themes

StudioPress Premium WordPress ThemesIt’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.

True Story: This post has a crap ton affiliate links, which means I make a small commission if you buy a theme.  Don’t fret, I only recommend products that I personally use and approve.

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.

Update: All templates listed here are now HTML5 enabled.

      Isn’t it! I hardly realized there were so many until I started compiling the list. Really pleased to see all the responsive themes coming from the community. And you’re right – clients think it’s magic! :)

      Hi Cheri,
      The Agency Theme is responsive, but the AgentPress Theme is not. I suspect StudioPress will overhaul and re-release AgentPress sometime after the Genesis 2.0. upgrade.

    Carrie this was very useful – some of these themes are ‘hidden’ on the main site. I was considering their $299 one off offer for all current and future child themes this made up my mind!. I think there designs are improving (they can be a bit ‘conservative’) and should continue to do so. The framework of course is rock solid. Thanks again…

    I notice that you say that the Modern Portfolio Theme has a portfolio custom post type, but I recently purchased that theme and the custom post type is not included. I noticed that you appear to be using this theme yourself and your site does appear to have the custom post type. Did you add that yourself? Or is the version of the theme currently available to download different than the version you downloaded? Thanks!

    Great post Carrie. Thanks! Do you by any chance know if the (in)spyr theme is already HTML5 enabled? I viewed the source code off the demo theme. It appears that it may be but I’m a novice and not sure. Thanks for your time :)

    nice work Carrie. i like your simple header and layout on this ‘Modern portfolio’ theme. i have experiences with Other template providers but don’t feel assured about investing in them. Theme Forrest seem not to qualify their providers so, if one stops developing, you’re stumped, CyberChimps make it difficult to interact, their demos look good but extra charges are hidden behind them and their themes mostly come with no documentation. i have a few themes now from Studiopress and mojoThemes. for me solid, accountable companies , they as good as you can get. i use.
    My query for you is, i’m looking for blogging themes and landing page themes. i’m using Cyberchimps ‘Delight’ theme. I use it on the WordPress free blog hosted site but… it’s super-inflexible. Will I always find this problem using this host? what can you advise?

      Do you mean you’re site is hosted for free on or that you have your own install of WordPress on Bluehost? If you’re at, you’ll definitely be limited to theme choices. Otherwise, I wouldn’t consider Bluehost a limitation to what you’re describing – just sounds like the theme doesn’t do what you need.
