13 Impressive Medium-Style WordPress Themes

Where To Buy WordPress Themes

There’s almost no doubt about it: Medium provides one of the best publishing experiences on the web — not only from a writer’s perspective, but also from a reader’s. Clean, minimalist, and with more than a few extras to help keep the reader’s attention — like drop caps, beautifully designed blockquotes and various extra wide web elements — the design of Medium certainly has a lot to offer!

But what if, rather than Medium, you decide WordPress is the better platform for your project (note: if you’re still undecided which to choose, check out our earlier article comparing the two platforms)? Has anyone attempted to include a bit of that Medium-style magic within a WordPress theme? Well, whilst you’re unlikely to find an exact replica (and probably shouldn’t go using one even if you did — since Medium might not be too happy about having the design of their site outright copied), there are without question a number of developers who’ve taken at least some inspiration from Medium when putting together their themes.

Here’s a quick roundup of what’s available (in no particular order):
