  1. These designs are so refreshing when you look at most of the fairly boring, conventional templates that WordPress has to offer. Shows what CAN be done with a bit of creativity!

    • I had a look at the collection of sites which you have in your showcase. I am currently working on a WP theme so these fantastic sites have given me some great ideas.

  2. an awesome site. definitely great stuff… does the headers are free or be in charge. because i want it for my WP site which is about pre wedding & wedding photography, portrait photography, design and merchandise

  3. very nice examples.. they are definitely all out there.. think we need to do a wordpress site like this for our portfolio 😉

  4. wooooo hooooooooo awesome list very proud to have a mention amongst all this talent.
    Keep up the good shiz 😉

  5. Cool examples.
    Thanks for such an inspirational post.
    I am designing a wordpress theme for my blog, and this will really help me. 🙂

  6. Truly great collection and very inspirational. I was looking for new ideas for my upcoming theme. I hope this will help.

  7. That was great. Lovely wordpress header designs. And these will really make your blog more attractive. I’ll definitely try some of them for my blog. Cheers.

  8. Great set of headers and a great resource for some new inspiration. I like all of these designs and all are very creative. Thanks for sharing more great designs.

  9. I dont like it. I mean it might be ok for a poster or flyer. But web is already overflowing with this mash-collage-photoshopness, a lot ingredients but final product doesn’t taste good.

  10. If you have a WordPress hosted site, choose a template with a customizable header and put it in as an image. There will be no links or Flash or anything, but it will give you the look you want!

  11. nice list- very creative headers.
    I personally like all of these, although I can imagine that others might consider some of these just a tiny bit over the top.

  12. Does WordPress charge for custom pages? I would love to customize mine, but am not sure how to go about doing that. I need to check with them and see. I love these headers though. They are sharp.

  13. This is a great resource, Andy! I’m actually going to be redoing my header in the next few weeks and this post has given me a lot of inspiration.

    I haven’t been here for a few weeks, but I like the new design, Michael!
