Adrian Diaconescu recently released a fantastic magazine theme for WordPress called Brink. The design comes with three different colour schemes (black, blue and green) and would be perfect for a gaming, movie or news website.
Controlled by it’s own option page, Brink allows you to modify typography. Post thumbnails are used throughout the design and it has its own contact form too.
The single.php template has a traditional blog layout with a subscription area, sponsors, featured articles and archives.
A regular license for Brink costs $35 from ThemeForest. It’s a good option for those of you who are looking to launch a magazine.
