CrankedBlue Free responsive WordPress theme

CrankedBlue is a simple, highly customizable, and translation-ready theme for WordPress. It is responsive to mobile/tablet screen sizes and is built on HTML5, CSS3, and a bit of Javascript. I have had quite a few requests for examples of my work with both responsive web design and WordPress, so this project was meant to be a simple example that knocks out both in one fell swoop. You can read more about the development details here.

CrankedBlue is free and released under GPL, so download and get started today!
