Anders Norén Releases Abisko, a New Free WordPress Theme with 30+ Block Patterns

Anders Norén, a designer and developer, has recently launched a new free block theme called Abisko. The theme is created to fully support the new design features available in the latest WordPress 6.2 release. Abisko is named after one of Norén’s favorite stomping grounds, Abisko national park, where he hikes every summer.

Abisko places a strong emphasis on both images and typography, featuring the geometric “Plus Jakarta Sans” font for both headings and paragraph text. The theme includes five different style variations, with unique color palettes that will change the entire look and feel of the site. Abisko packages more than 30 patterns for users to mix and match in creating pages. These include a grid with logo types, various artfully designed gallery layouts, contact section, various calls-to-action, hero patterns with images and background colors, testimonials grid, FAQ section, features list, a pricing table, large numbered lists, a wide separator with vertical margins, and more. The theme also has five full-page layouts available as patterns: About Us, Contact Us, FAQ, Front Page, and a Linktree style page.

Abisko’s H1 and H2 headings make a major statement in the design across the various templates and patterns. Norén contrasts this with liberal use of whitespace so it doesn’t end up feeling overbearing. At a font weight of 800, the headings are sure to grab attention. The theme was designed with travel blogs in mind, but it’s flexible for many different use cases, including agencies, portfolios, businesses, and personal websites.

Abisko is available for free on Check out the live demo to see what is possible and the page that previews all the block patterns.
