Designed by Mel Choyce, Lodestar is a great start for your small business or organisation’s website. There is no cost and it’s available to install from a free WordPress.com subscription, making it an ideal theme to work with while getting to know basic WordPress functionality without any initial costs.

Fully responsive for tables and smartphone, Lodestar’s easy-to-use content options can be interspersed with full-width photos and key marketing messages.

Projects, products and media can be showcase in the Portfolio section, and testimonials built trust with prospective clients.

You brand colours and typography are easily configured, and a helpful feature is an inline-editor, so you can point and click to the content you want to edit.
