20+ Bold Business WordPress Themes
If you’re in the business of web design, chances are you’ve come across a client that needs a website for their business. You’ll get clients from all walks of life but some clients can just be straight up boring. Many designers aren’t jumping up and down to work with the construction companies, lawyers or medical supply shops. We like to work with the fun stuff like bakeries, creative agencies and clothing stores.
The reason is because most traditionally bland businesses enjoy the traditional and bland website. You end up making something lots of blues, lots of boxes and tons of text. So what happens when you don’t want to say no to a client that fits this profile but you also don’t want to say no to creativity? Well, you meet in the middle.
And that’s exactly what we’re doing today. We’ve gathered more than 20 WordPress themes that add some flavor to the typical business website and can be used no matter the industry. Let’s jump on in.
