Genesis Child Theme Developers: Visual Directory

There are well over one-hundred Genesis Child Themes out there, however many of them are located only on each developers sites. I created this reference directory of all active Genesis Child Theme Developers to make it easier on myself, and everyone else for that matter to find all of my Child Theme options without the headache.

The Directory of all Genesis Child Theme Developers and Their Themes.

There are two groups, developers and theme stores. Theme developers are ordered by the number of themes released and their overall commitment to the community. I also created another resource, a catalog of All FREE Genesis Child Themes. This resource shows a screenshot of the theme, and links to demos and dowloads. Please note that some of these links are affiliate links and some are not. I wanted to create a resource that included ALL theme options, not just ones supported by affiliate links. If this resource has been helpful for you, please consider clicking though my links when you decide to purchase. Much appreciated! Creating this resource and keeping it updated takes a lot of work. Any donations would be welcome, thanks!

Directory of ALL Genesis Child Theme Developers

You have got to love these independent developers. I welcome all of the variety of child themes that they create. The more diverse the designs, the more attractive the Framework will be. On second thought, maybe I don’t want it to be too popular; the awesome SEO of this framework is like a good insiders secret. From here it is up to you to decide which Genesis Child Theme is best for you.

Comments

  1. Removed Press75 from Developers list as they have officially stopped offering the On Demand Theme as a Genesis Child Theme. Thanks to David Decker @deckerweb for the heads up.

  2. Added AppFinite and Studiopress Marketplace. Checked all existing developers for any changes, theme releases, etc, which there were none.

  3. Allure Themes just released their “October” theme, bringing their total to 8.

  4. Updated Theme counts for Studiopress, Studiopress Marketplace, and Themedy Themes

  5. Updated Links from ThemeGarden. You can no longer browse ThemeGarden for Genesis Child Themes directly, only by search for themes by author. Not sure how long that solution will remain effective.

  6. Added Jigoshop as a new developer selling a Genesis Child Theme

  7. Added TeethGrinder with his new premium theme, Stargazer. Great feature-packed theme!
