Artisan Themes: Beautiful Handmade WordPress Themes

Artisan Themes is a small boutique theme shop selling handcrafted, premium WordPress themes.

Co-founders Mai Knoblovits and Javier Schvindlerman launched Artisan Themes in 2012. The business was originally called QuadroIdeas but was rebranded to Artisan Themes in 2016.

Modular WordPress Themes

All Artisan themes have a modular system that allows you to build your WordPress site by creating, combining and customizing different sections – called modules. Each theme comes with 20+ modules for the most common elements in websites today (blog post, call to action, featured post, image, gallery, portfolio, pricing table, slider etc). All the modules are integrated into the WordPress dashboard so you handle modules like a regular post. The modular system makes the themes very flexible so with any theme you can build pretty much any type of site you want.

Ready Made Sites

Another neat aspect of Artisan themes is that each theme comes with a number of Ready Made Sites. These are a collection of pre-made site designs for a specific niche or purpose: a blog, an agency, a business, a shop etc. The ready made site is installed with one click from the WordPress dashboard so you can get a working site in minutes. Very handy.

Each theme also comes with the Artisan Pages Plugin that lets you build a modular page automatically with the click of a button. The plugin provides a catalogue of pre-made page designs for easily creating a homepage, contact page, magazine page, about page, landing page, blog page and more. You can also create your own page layouts and save them to use again.
