When the name Automattic is mentioned many people associate it with WordPress. It is quite correct. WordPress.com is owned by Automattic, and is powered by the open source WordPress software.
Many people surely heard of Matt Mullenweg as developer of WordPress. Now CEO and president at Automattic.
Automattic owns many successful web services. I bet you heard of Gravatar, Akismet, PollDaddy, Jetpack or Simplenote! In other words, a very very successful company.
The folks at Automattic also design free WordPress themes. In the WordPress Themes Directory they are listed with no less than 48 themes. This week they released 3 new free themes.
All themes are really well made with great features.
What I like with themes from Automattic is that they always keep it simple. Themes are not overworked. Not loaded with all imaginable features. Just basic WordPress functions sometimes with a twist of awesomeness. Here are 3 new free WordPress themes designed by Automattic.
