A few years ago there were less than a handful of well known Premium WordPress Theme companies on the market. In 2011 there are literally dozens of great theme companies all doing amazing work and offering great support. Each with it’s own niche and specialty. Some have created frameworks while others have focused on new approaches like drag and drop design. All of these companies some of which are one man teams and others who are full blown companies with numerous employees have added tremendous value to the WP community, blogging and website design in general.
Although Matt Mullenweg and WordPress have to my knowledge never officially given credit to the premium theme and plugin community I don’t think anyone can argue against the fact the reason the WordPress platform is where it is today is because of 3rd party theme and plugin developers.
So with all that in mind… Who’s your favorite premium WordPress theme company and why? Was it price, style of their themes, clean code or because they offered second to none support? Let us know by voting in the poll and then comments section below.
