Default-looking WordPress theme with a soul

Cinnamon Theme

Cinnamon is default-looking WordPress theme with a soul

The Origin

The development of Cinnamon was started in November 2014. Cinnamon strives to be “default looking” classic two columns layout theme with a soul. Keeping familiarity of blog with enough blend of character.

The Goals

Cinnamon is made with these goals in mind:

  1. Looks great in all screen
  2. Based on _s
  3. Feels familiar, looks blog-ey, but have enough twist on its own
  4. Ideal for blogger who blogs about his/her interests, and capable of displaying the blogger’s craft.
  5. in months to come (after several iteration), I personally wish that Cinnamon reaches a level where Automattic theme team would love to use it on WordPress.com
