Hi folks

I'm working on my first Orchard theme which I will release to the gallery as a free theme.

I created a demo website on Azure to collect some feedback from the Orchard community:

Wise Words - Live Demo on Azure

What particularly interests me:
  1. How do you like the overall design of the theme?
  2. Would you consider using this theme for your website?
  3. Would you be willing to pay for the theme?
  4. If yes, how much would you be willing to spend?
  5. If no, why not?
  6. What kind of theme would you be most interested in? Post example links if you wish.
  7. Other feedback, bugs you encounter, requests, etc.
I'm planning to launch a premium theme service for Orchard afterwards. This is sort of my warm up theme to get some experience. I also hope to provide an attractive theme to the gallery so people will be more likely to use and stick to Orchard. In my opinion the availability of good themes (both free and premium), along with other factors, is very important for the success of any CMS.

Looking forward to your feedback!

I like it. It's clean and professional. It's also responsive, which is a must nowadays. Well done.

In IE the search box has a dashed outline.
I would also like to see the search box inside the header and resize automatically, or provide an alternate search icon on smaller screens.

Great work !
