About this collection
StudioPress set the bar high when they released the Genesis Framework for WordPress – which is one of the most powerful, secure, and optimized frameworks on the market today.

Some of the biggest bloggers and websites use a framework to power their site (and Genesis users include ProBlogger, Chris Brogan, Yoast, & Copyblogger among others) – which allows you to build upon a beautifully coded back-end that has been optimized with sparkling, clean code that has been finely tweaked for maximum performance.

Developed by StudioPress (one of the world’s leading WordPress development and design shops) Genesis provides the functionality and features that have been carefully tuned and tested – ensuring your blog or website is running at its very best.

Over the past several years, this framework has been deployed on nearly 100,000 websites and blogs – a testament to how wildly popular and embraced it is by designers and developers.

Even out of the box, Genesis can easily run nearly any type of website or blog. However, because of the nature of the framework – you can hook in child themes (which use the base code but enhance some of the design and functionality of your site) to give you whatever design or features you might need.

Luckily, there are a handful of really excellent free child themes for Genesis that can help deliver a professional look for your website or blog.

If you’re looking for additional options to choose from, you might also want to take a look at the StudioPress theme shop. It features designs from third-party developers in addition to their own selection, and these themes make a good choice for those who might want support for customizing their design or help if they run into any obstacles (because premium themes include support).

I’ve rounded up some of the best child themes (with a ton of free ones as well) that can get you started and present a beautifully aesthetic look to your visitors.

While all of the themes on this page are free, they do require the Genesis Framework by StudioPress in order to function properly.

So… take ’em for a test drive and see what you think:
