History

PandaThemes was founded by Karina Panda and Igor Panda. The team is based out of Thailand, Phuket where Karina handles all the various aspects of web design while Igor deals with development.

Their background was in Information Technology and their initial goal when starting Panda Themes was to create WordPress themes that were completely customizable and would allow users the freedom of being able to change the look without doing any coding.

They have released a number of their themes through ThemeForest which is probably to drum up business for their site.

How does PandaThemes Work?

Panda Themes is not a membership based themes site. It offers individual themes at one price which is $35. They currently have seven themes available at the time of this writing.

Each regular licence comes with the following

  • Full support for WordPress 3.0
  • PSD Photoshop Files for customizing images
  • Extended Documentation
  • Customer Support
  • Free Updates

It will be interesting to see if Pandathemes.com moves to a membership based business model in the near future once they have created more themes.

They currently are only creating WordPress themes but like many other sites online that might change in time, moving to other platforms.

CONS
