Grey Matter Theme for WordPress

Most WordPress themes seem to rely on a few core design principles: a) there’s no such thing as too many columns — 4 is good but 5 or 6 are even better; b) you just can’t have too many distracting visual elements — nobody visits a site for content, what they really want to see are giant icons; c) garish backgrounds and header graphics help drive traffic — if visitors can easily read the content the first time, they might never come back.

So as much as I like it, it is clear that Nikolaj Masnikov’s nicely understated Grey Matter Theme is probably not the theme you’re looking for,

What the hell? A simple, straightforward color scheme? Where are the garish buttons? Why would anyone want to put the title of their blog up at top when a high contrast picture of clowns or perhaps daffodils would be so much easier on the eyes?

Man, what was that guy thinking?
