Though much later than promised, I am finally releasing the Emphasis Theme. The idea is to focus on the content, through a clean design, great formatting, and robust features. Hopefully it will be the first of many free themes to come. The theme is GPL, so use, modify, and redistribute as you please! Take a look through some of the features I designed in.
Clean, Effective Post Design
There is nothing to get in the way of your content. The theme uses a lot of white-space to give it a classy feel, while getting the user straight to the content. Simple shadows and contrasting text add a lot of style to the design.
Great Comment Layout & Gravatar Support
All comments are well designed and formatted making it easy to read. It also has full support for Gravatars, so you can recognize your commenters across multiple sites.
Widgetized sidebar and footer
Widgets make it easy to add your exact content in the sidebar and footer. Since two separate widget areas are defined you can fully customize your content.
Dynamic filter function on Archive and Search pages
With the use of a great jQuery plugin you can live filter all posts on the archive and search pages to find exactly what you want. You really have to see the functionality to see the benefits.
Enough talk, download the theme

I would love to hear in the comments how and where you are using the theme. Enjoy!
