AlienWP was founded in 2013 by Galin Simeonov, with the aim of building ” solid themes that follow best practices and the official WordPress coding standards. Themes that provide real value for the WordPress users.”

AlienWP went on to release 4 free themes on the official directory which today have over 40,000 active installations, along with versions on WordPress.com which you can also use for free. There are also a number of exclusive premium themes available to purchase on this site.

In 2016, AlienWP was acquired by Oliver Dale, of Kooc Media, which also runs the ThemeFurnace WordPress themes site. Kooc Media, also acquired the themes site Fimply, another provider of clean minimal themes and merged the two websites, bringing members of AlienWP more themes.

In 2016 the site relaunched with a new fresh design and the addition of a new members system and merging all the themes from Fimply and AlienWP.

Throughout our blog we use illustrations provided by Freepik, so many thanks to them for offering them free.
