Short FAMEThemes Review
Compared to giants like ThemeForest and Gravity Forms, FAMEThemes are quite a small company. They have little over 4700 customers at the time of writing and just 6 themes available. They advertise they offer some free themes, but on closer inspection they do not. Themes are a flat rate of $39, which is about average from what I’ve seen so far. There is nothing immediately striking about these, as there was with the varied catalog from Tesla Themes, all of which were bold and bright. These are mostly white, with smatterings of primary colours here and there. The themes are nice and clean, but just a little dull.
The Enpine theme they offer, however, is almost dull in a good way. It has big boxes for photos and blocks of text, divided elegantly over the space on the screen. It is a theme which would force the user to look purely at the content and not be distracted by the other features of the site. As they say, Enpine is fantastic for content writers who want a minimalistic style. Their Amzola theme, however, is a totally different story. It is loud, messy and would definitely not suit a technology magazine as it says. The fonts and colours are all over the place, the only way this is retina-ready is that it gets your retinas ready to quit as soon as they see it.
Their lifetime membership fees are $100 more than GavickPro’s, but they have far, far fewer themes. It may just be because they are a new company and are currently working on that, if so, I may have been too harsh, but they are still far more expensive than their more varied competitors. How can they expect to get started like that?
Their Wentasi theme looks like a much cleaner, more easily digestible version of one of the default WordPress themes, especially with the yellow text highlights. This isn’t so much of a bad thing, since it is, on closer inspection a very nice theme. And for $39, no one would be complaining that much; especially since FameThemes generously offer a full refund if you aren’t satisfied. If you’re looking for variety look up ThemeForest; if you’re looking for quality look up GavickPro.
