Hey! So. This site will undergo some major re-design in the next several months (if not longer).
In the mean time, I highly suggest you head on over to: http://customthemes.tumblr.com/

Free Tumblr Themes is Dead »

It has been dead for quite a while if you haven’t noticed.

I don’t think any of the other theme aggregator sites could pull off something so rad like the official theme gallery did.

Thanks to everyone that pitched in during the early days of this site. :)

graph paper is an old theme. Mostly because it took so long to finally post another. Some new stuff for the site is coming, here’s a theme to start things off. I’m considering closing the comments, but disqus has really made some cool updates.Anyhow, graph paper is a theme based off, well, graph.. paper… It’s another one of Heather’s really cool creations. And, apparently this is all a result of her excuse: I go through an unholy amount of graph paper.But seriously, this theme’s really cool, it supports reblog posts and even custom colors!Downsides: So many custom colors that they go down below a selectable area in the tumblr theme color customization section… which, though it’s tubmlr’s fault is really weird. And the post title link hover has an itty, bitty bug (though it might just be my Safari).The theme can be downloaded directly here.You can view a live demo here. P.S.: New themes will be posted more regularly now (or as they become available). Remember to send me your themes and have a happy monday (yes, that was sarcasm).

Heather makes some really cool, clean themes. This one, box factory, is no exception. It’s a bit like the other box themes out there, except it’s very minimalistic, and more important, the usability is at its max here.

They’re just that. Regular.

Permalink pages have the “previous” and “next” post links. And if a post is too long in an index page, it displays a scroll bar on mouse over. Sweet! No custom colors, but it’s worth it.

Alrighty then… This time we’ve got two themes! Both emulate the tumblr dashboard look. There’s dashboard. from Christopher. Cool dude, cool theme. And then there’s dashtheme realized by Tal. They’re both really cool but each has it’s own strength and weaknesses. Read on for the details…

dashboard - regular post

regular posts

Chris’ theme looks like it’s built with the tumblr group in mind. Mostly due to the fact that the posts point right to the author. Now, each post is also that darker color which reminds you of when you post stuff in the real dashboard. Tal’s theme on the other hand, is built for the individual in mind. The icons that are used for posting are used here for identification though it’s strange that they don’t work as permalinks also.

dashboard - other

other details

Again, Tal’s theme gives you an area for the tumbleog description (naturally more suited for individuals), while Christopher’s theme just has a cool(er) header in my opinion.

download

Chris’ theme can be downloaded here. Tal’s can’t be downloaded yet… but you can follow the official live demo. Word is it will be released soon. Sweet!

A live demo of Chris’ theme is here, and Tal’s ovah there.

Max made this theme, Penguin Classics, based off the Penguin Classics books. It’s great, especially if you like penguins and books and penguin books or themes with penguins or even penguin themed bogs based off penguin books. Yes.

Great choice for fonts and layout. The posts are clearly divided, though it can be a bit confusing to know what post divider, which is also a permalink, belongs to what post.

This penguin theme doesn’t support custom colors. :( but it has penguins, so… (also, just be careful how you code your blog description…)
