Finished Theme

The Finished theme is actually an old b2evolution blog skin that I really enjoyed creating. It was when I was first seriously getting into web design and WordPress development. The original b2 template markup was hideous, and the CSS was just a mess all over. But that was then and this is now. Completely rewritten with valid XHTML and CSS, the Finished theme is solid structure and clean design with cool skeleton graphics and lots of other embellished details. Read more »

Entropy Theme

Garden of Entropic Delightz! The Entropy theme is the disproportionate inverse of Monzilla Media’s recently released DOS_FX theme. Entropy is super lightweight and bandwidth-friendly, with minimal template code and virtually zero design embellishments (unlike my other WordPress themes). So it’s very minimalistic and casual, more of a starting point for more elaborate theme design. Honestly the funnest part of developing this theme was the little alien avatar (you can see it in the screenshot) that I found somewhere online, long, long ago.. Read more »

DOS_FX Theme

It’s pure DOS, Baby! Behold, locked in a laboratory clean-room for hours with only archaic operating systems at my disposal, I found myself amazed by the sheer and utter uncompromising utility of a Windows DOS console. After a few traceroutes I found myself recreating the precise DOS aesthetic using CSS and XHTML. Basically same font, same colors, font sizes, and so forth. The rest is history. After work, I fired up the WordPress machine and hit the codes. A few hours later, the DOS_FX theme was born. DOS_FX is ultra-lightweight, color-safe, image-friendly, and XHTML strict. Other than that, it’s so […] Read more »

Bananaz Theme

Perishable Press serves ’em some bananas with this release of the Bananaz theme for WordPress. Bananaz is highly customizable, with a unique two-column hybrid design that merges fixed-width content with a liquid header and footer. Also, the Bananaz theme combines semantic markup with the sheer miracle of CSS, so the design validates as XHTML strict and displays consistently across all browsers. Plus, Bananaz is configured to support several popular WordPress plugins (see installation notes for further details). Read more »

Open Casket

Get your own Casket!! Presenting the ghastly new WordPress theme that’s fresh from the tomb. Perishable Press officially opens the casket with the free Casket WordPress theme. Casket is a meticulously designed, single-column theme that’s built with minimal code and performance in mind. This is one of my first “favorite” themes, on which I must have worked for hours, experimenting, tweaking, and fine-tuning all the details striving for that perfect layout: balanced composition, crisp icons, and some choice fonts.

Dead Letter Art

Dead Letter Art represents the creative exploits of several Northwest chillers. Their collective history is rich and reaches back almost two decades. For several years during the turn of the millennium, the DLa artists collaborated and published over twenty issues of their infamous zine, Dead Letter Art. Somehow, time has once again brought great distance between the members of DLa, and only time will tell if Dead Letter Art will truly rest in peace. Read more »
