Since more than 80 days have passed since I submitted this theme to the official WordPress theme directory queue, and since the theme is marked as being under review since a number of weeks, I decided to make my next theme available on this site and keep it here until it shows up in the official theme directory. This means that you can now download the first version of the Arctica theme and try it out.
Arctica is a basic 2-column blog theme, built upon a HTML5 code base (derived from Toolbox) and enhanced by CSS3 and a custom webfont. It is classical, by some measures to a level getting close to being oldschool. But the feedback has been very positive so far, and it is a theme which I could very well end up using myself if I would launch a personal blog some time in the future.
Give it a try, and let me know what you think about it. Feature suggestions, bug reports and general feedback are always welcome. As always, you can preview the theme on my theme demo site.
To download the Arctica theme directly, use this link: Arctica theme for WordPress (.zip, 179 Kb).
