I have always had a fondness for neat and clean WordPress themes, but either I am too fussy, or really, there not that many truly worthy 'minimal' themes. They all seem to suffer from something that I can't quite put my finger on. One WordPress theme from Modula really appeals to me.

I put this small post together after seeing this list of Minimal WordPress themes : http://matthewlyle.com/wordpress/9-useful-minimalist-wordpress-themes/

Modula White Dwarf

About a year ago I stumbled on a site called http://www.modula.fi. Here I found several very nice minimal WordPress themes, one in particular really caught my eye, called Modula White Dwarf. This is the theme that currently resides on MonoExpression, my photographic portrait gallery website. This is pretty much default, the only tweaks I have made to the header and subtle text styling tweaks for the navigation lists.

Modula White Dwarf is based on Sandbox, but the theme download files for White Dwarf include Sandbox, so the installation is dead easy.

Modula Blue Giant

The other theme is Blue Giant, not so keen on this one, but still a nice alternative to some of the themes out there.

Blue Giant is a minimalist magazine style WordPress theme. The page layout follows a clear and concise two column layout. There are two fully customizable sidebars. One for the homepage and one for the other templates.

Blue Giant is a clean, grid-based starter layout for designers to install and style to their own liking. No widgets or plugins are necessary to use this theme. Simply download, unzip, upload to your theme directory and select Modula Blue Giant in your WordPress dashboard.
