The latest mobile-optimized Genesis lifestyle blog theme by StudioPress.
It’s been a while since our team at StudioPress has worked on a magazine-style theme, mainly because we had plenty of them and the business/agency themes have been in high demand.
Earlier this year, Rafal and I met up at Starbucks to discuss the selection of StudioPress themes, and we decided to come up with a short list of types that we felt were lacking.
We agreed that it was time to re-invent the way magazine-style themes were designed at StudioPress, especially with the surge of lifestyle blogs that have exploded all over the Internet.
There’s no denying the popularity of food blogs, travel blogs, fashion blogs, and wellness blogs these days. We spent some time studying the latest design trends and techniques for building a beautiful mobile-optimized magazine-style experience.
