Sixteen Nine is a brand new theme created by StudioPress founder Brian Gardner for his own website. He’s since moved on to a new design, but now it can be all yours.
Sixteen Nine is the quintessential setup for a personal blog but far from limiting. Which makes sense, based on how Brian named the theme.
Behind the Scenes
Sixteen Nine takes its name from the elevation of Mount Everest’s North Base Camp (16,900 ft). Located in Tibet, it is the more difficult of Everest’s two base camps to set out from because of the extra permit required. South Base Camp is in Nepal and is one of the most popular trekking routes in the Himalayas.
But regardless of where climbers start, reaching the top is all that matters. Likewise, whether you have personal or professional goals in mind for your site, you can use Sixteen Nine to get there. Check out the demo or just go ahead and buy it now.
Customization is a good thing. Sixteen Nine allows users to upload their very own custom image header to obtain a much more personalized look and feel.
The use of this option is completely free, and you do not need to purchase the Custom Design upgrade in order to change your header.
What a statement a custom background image or color can make!
Sixteen Nine allows you to customize the background of your blog by either uploading an image or selecting a color.
You can choose from 2 different layout configurations for Sixteen Nine — either show a sidebar on the right side of your content, and simply display a wider column of content.
