Anders Norén has shared some attractive mockups of the upcoming Twenty Twenty default theme. Twenty Twenty will be included in WordPress 5.3, which is due out in mid-November.
Anders notes that “Twenty Twenty is designed with flexibility at its core” and will include the typeface Inter, designed by Rasmus Andersson. Naturally, Twenty Twenty will fully support for the Block Editor, as well as matching editor styles. It will be based on Anders' popular theme, Chaplin, “to speed up development.”
Initial impressions of Anders' theme preview in the WordPress community have been largely positive. Although all default themes have been well-built and each is best suited for a specific use-case, it has been a long time since I've seen so much excitement in anticipation of a core theme. 🤩
