Check out the Smart New Look at StudioPress

Image of New Design

Once Genesis 2.0 was released a few weeks ago, the countdown to a new look and feel for began.

That countdown just ran out …

The brand new highlights the Genesis Framework’s design capabilities.

What Brian Gardner, Rafal Tomal, and the rest of the StudioPress team did is sleek in look, responsive in feel, and revealing of the vast potential our simple yet very powerful Genesis framework possesses.

Oh, and it performs … still loading in less than a second.

The new shows you why more than 101,000 website owners have made StudioPress the industry standard for premium WordPress themes.

But don’t just take my word for it. I’m biased, after all. See for yourself.

And I know you’ll like what you don’t see about the underlying Genesis framework:

  1. The ultra-flexible, SEO-friendly code
  2. The airtight security
  3. Blazing fast performance
  4. Unlimited everything
  5. Instant updates
  6. And much more …

With our assortment of child themes expanding — and a new Pro theme announced on the blog weekly — now is literally the best time ever to join one of the largest, most loyal contingents of WordPress publishers.

We love using our own products to make our sites, and our businesses, better. But we love watching you achieve your goals even more (we are a training company, after all).

And we hope the new helps inspire the next step in the evolution of your website’s design.

  1. Oh yes Jerod.. I also love studio press mainly due to their extremely great SEO friendly code.

  2. Under 1 second is IMPRESSIVE!

    But why, according to Pingdom does take 5 seconds to load?

    • Hashim,

      Great question! And, in fact, I’m glad you brought this up as it’s a terrific learning opportunity about what contributes to site speed.

      If you look at the link you posted, you can see that the waterfall shows each object being loaded on the page, where it’s coming from, and how much it is contributing to the overall load time. Notice how all of the objects loading from are lightning quick?

      The issue here is actually objects from third-party sites. Examples include and and there are others. The Analytics code, in particular, isn’t even fully loading. The same is true for a video code. That causes unnecessary lag times. A clean, streamlined site with under 100 objects and a relatively small memory footprint, as Copyblogger has, should not take any longer than a second to load. And this is where it is SO important to go through themes with a fine-tooth comb and ensure that there are no unnecessary or broken links being loaded.
