DevPress launched last September, as a collaborative work between four WordPress professionals: Justin Tadlock, Patrick Daly, Ptah Dunbar, and Tung Do. They created a good deal of buzz with the launch of their free News theme, and a few blog posts to get things rolling.
That buzz might just continue this week, with the news that they have relaunched their site with a new commercial theme called Visual designed for social and photo blogging. We have redesign comparison screenshots just after the jump, as we usually do, as well as the stylish video they made promoting their new theme.
In addition to the relaunch of their site, now using BuddyPress and the newly beta’d bbPress plugin, their new Visual theme costs $30. It looks like DevPress is entering the commercial theme space with this entry.

In case a relaunched site with fresh activity, a new vision, and a redesign screenshot comparison aren’t enough for you (if so, what’s wrong with you?) they also put together a spiffy video for their latest theme.
What do you think of DevPress’ chance in the commercial theme market? Are you excited to see what this group’s collaborative efforts will create?
