I just launched a brand new, responsive, and completely free Wordpress theme. Inspired by my home-- the Pacific Northwest (of the United States)-- Northwestern is a minimalistic Wordpress theme for independent bloggers.
The theme's look can also be customized to fit your personality, with the primary colors and hero image changeable. Northwestern also supports several of the Wordpress post formats, including "aside", links, and quotes.
Go ahead and grab it for free from my website, and feel free to use it for both personal and commercial websites. More information on the license can be found on the store page.
