Our Story

Because there’s no way to improve without looking back on where you came from.


aThemes started back in 2013 with releasing free WordPress themes on WordPress.org. After some early success with themes like Fashionista and Hiero, we decided to keep releasing themes and see where it would take us.


In August 2014 we released our first premium theme, Alizee Pro. This was received well enough for us to keep creating and releasing easy to use themes, both free and premium.


As of 2018, our Sydney theme has reached an incredible milestone: with 200,000 active installs, it’s one of the most popular free WordPress themes in the world. Its premium version, Sydney Pro, now comes with four additional demos you can import, giving you five designs for the price of one.


The Airi theme was a new addition to our free themes. It reached 10,000 installs within the year, and we added the premium Airi Pro companion plugin. We also gave our Sydney theme a design refresh and continued to release new designs for Sydney Pro.


We keep on improving our existing themes to make them even more awesome. We are working hard behind the themes to make more layouts for popular themes like Sydney Pro and Airi Pro.
