Every good designer knows that sometimes there is no need to reinvent the wheel. In this case, the wheel would be using a good CMS (Content Management System).  There are many great CMS’s to use.  Two of the most common are WordPress and Joomla.  For this post we will focus on free WordPress templates as the topic.  (You can find some examples of free Joomla template themes <- here.)

Instead of billing a client for weeks and weeks of development (reinventing the wheel), why not save you time and them money?  Installing WordPress can be done in a few minutes and the rest of your time can be spent customizing the theme to the liking of a client.  Additionally, existing CMS’s have more plugins than you can shake a stick at.  This will help get your client up and running quicker, which helps build your relationship in return. Win/win.

Below are some free WordPress themes that we have found useful.  Enjoy!
