Since I launched my blog Cats Who Code, many people asked me about a similar theme. I first thought about releasing the Cats Who Code theme, but the main problem with that theme is that it is very complex and too specific to our blog.

So, I figured out that I definitely should release a similar theme, but make it simple to administrate for both WordPress advanced users and beginners.

On a personal note, I chose to get inspiration for this theme from New York City, where I traveled in June and really enjoyed it. The vector image isn’t from me, but from a designer named Raul. I have sent him an email to ask him if I can use his image for the theme, but never received a reply. After 2 weeks, I decided to make the theme available, anyways most people will use their own image instead.

If you find any bugs or problems in the theme, let me know and i’ll correct it for a future version.

Hope you’ll like it! I plan to release a bunch of new themes in the near future, both here and at my blog Cats Who Code, so you should definitely subscribe to my RSS Feed and/or follow me on Twitter!
