7. Branford Magazine

Branford Magazine is the very first WordPress theme release from Michael Oeser. This magazine style theme combines the very best elements of three famous WordPress magazine themes into one single theme.

The result is a clean, feature packed magazine style theme which rivals some of the best premium WordPress themes. However it could also be argued that the theme is too much of a blatant rip off of the themes mentioned above, particularly Mimbo, and lacks originality.
