    Some of the themes are nice but you left out the themes like Stockholm, Cardinal and Salient. What was your preparation a quick search on Themeforest?

      None of the themes you mentioned were released in October which is why they weren’t on this list 🙂 Thanks for the suggestions though!

    Just awesome themes. what software do you use to design such themes.

    • Kyla Avatar Kyla

      We actually didn’t design any of these WordPress themes, but I would think that the ThemeForest authors who did probably used a text editor like Sublime Text or Coda to create the theme files 🙂
