Almost every year, WordPress gets a new default theme. This theme is bundled with the last major release of WordPress for the year. This time, we welcome a new theme in WordPress 5.6. The theme is called Twenty Twenty-One and it is a stunner. It was designed by Automattic’s Mel Choyce-Dwan and built by a team of developers led by Carolina Nymark. Let’s meet the new theme and one of its creators: Carolina.
A beautiful and practical theme for WordPress
Twenty Twenty-One is a great theme with a design that makes it stand out. The colors, the whitespace, the typography — it’s all very clean and well-thought-out. The design is like a new canvas waiting to be painted! And you can paint it in any way you want, because of block patterns.
As usual, Yoast contributed to the release of WordPress 5.6. We have a dedicated WordPress Core team, led by Francesca Marano, that works on all part of WordPress — from documentation to core code. This time, we also worked on the brand-new theme Twenty Twenty-One.
