The feedback we've received is heart-warming.
See what some of them are saying about their experience with Meks.
We were looking for a theme for a news site with a clean design, the option for full-width picture and an easy structure for the daily work. For that purpose Herald is excellent, especially for beginners with WordPress like me and my colleagues.
I was looking for a theme that I could create a highly authoritative website with, that was easy to work with and looks great – Herald does this and even more. We’ve had great support on every (silly) question we’ve asked! We now use their themes on multiple of our sites with a lot of pleasure.
Meks’ Throne theme saved me thousands of dollars. I’d tried countless themes, but could never get them to look and work the way I wanted them to. Not only does it look better than any other theme I’ve used, but more importantly – for me at least – it couldn’t have been easier to set-up and configure.
In my choice of WordPress template, it was important that the design was slick, user-friendly, and with options to easily modify the layout. Throne by Meks fulfills these criteria, and I am delighted with my choice.
We’ve recently updated our website to use the Gridlove theme. It covers all our needs and most importantly those of our advertisers. When we reported a small bug we immediately received a reply, even though the whole team from Meks was at WordCamp Europe. I highly recommend this theme!
Speed, responsiveness, and easy-of-use were my top priorities with all the emphasis search engines are placing on speed and being mobile friendly. After reviewing almost 100 themes, I narrowed it down to three. Once I took the Herald theme for a test drive, I was sold.
Voice is one of those WordPress themes that can be used for almost anything. It has in one place all of the important features and options you need to create a successful website on WordPress.
The Vlog theme from Meks has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is it well coded and highly customizable, it easily allows you to achieve a responsive and clean looking blog. Kudos also goes to their excellent online support.
The Safarica theme has completely helped transform my website into a responsive and colorful design for my readers. I especially love how it is incredibly versatile to suit anyone’s tastes with global color changes so you don’t have to stick to one or two particular colors schemes.
Before choosing Herald I looked very hard to find the best solution for the redesign of my old website. I tried so many different WordPress themes, but none completely fit my needs until I discovered Herald! One of the main things that led me to use it was the great support team.
With its amazing and easy to customize design, Sidewalk has allowed me to build my brand, engage my readers, and all with barely any computer skills.
I was so impressed with all the features included in the Herald theme. This is by far the best theme I’ve used in my blogging career!
Great WordPress theme, easy to configure and complete. A beautiful work, thank you!
A great, simple and effective theme! The sidebar is important on a website, and the Voice theme offers unlimited sidebars, many options and the code is very clean as well. Thanks team Meks!
This theme is wonderful and it’s very flexible to customize any feature. We were easily able to create a child theme and make necessary changes. Will recommend it to all our blog readers!
UnBoxifyMe.com has been using Meks’ theme Safarica for a long time now and so far it is the best theme the site has had. It is very versatile, very customizable (and easy in that), rich in essential features, loads fast; it has everything and is everything a professional website theme should be. Highly recommended!
I am really impressed with the skill and dedication that the team at Meks provides. Our projects are much less stressful knowing that we can count on the customization team to do whatever it takes to make it work. We finally have the theme we always wanted!
Vlog theme is a perfect mix of cool features, good code and a beautiful design. It’s very easy to use and customize. I recommend it to all WordPress users.
I was looking for a theme with a clean & responsive UI. I am glad that I found this theme. It’s very easy to setup & configure + comes with multiple design & very easy to switch between designs.
Since I understood the importance of design, I decided I would invest heavily in hiring the best designer for my sites. So I chose Meks, who in turn created Throne, definitely the best WordPress theme I’ve ever seen.
Great functionality interwoven with beautiful design make the Meks themes a real pleasure to work with. They are so flexible, slick and stylish that we cannot get enough of the Seashell and Voice themes, making one site after the other!
I spent a lot of time searching for a good template for my website, but nothing seemed to be right until I finally discovered Herald. It was exactly what I needed: speed, technical stability, cool widgets and looks. Plus I should say you won’t find such a great, fast and helpful support team that often.
It’s really hard to pick one main reason for how great the theme Sidewalk and the author Meks are. The theme is beautiful and so easy to use. I’m a newbie to WordPress and I built my site in a flash. The customer support is prompt, effective & pleasant. I would buy another theme from Meks in a heartbeat!
