I have been happily following Zeaks for a long time now. One of the main reasons is that he is one of the most helpful WordPress designers I have ever worked with. Zeaks builds some really cool WordPress child themes. He is very thoughtful about what features he adds to his themes. His latest release is called NomNom and its awesome!
Here are some of the features that are included with this theme.
Added 3 new layouts, Wide one column, narrow width left sidebar, narrow with right sidebar.
Added 6 new color schemes.
Added round corners to wrapper
Added NomNom Options page
Added Google Font selector
Added tabbed content shortcode
Fixed dropdown menu borders (should look better with default color scheme)
Fixed errors reported by Theme Check
Added excerpt length function to compensate for different width layouts, see functions.php

After I finished my site I changed the header and colors and made another Twenty Eleven child theme for you all to download. Keep in mind that this theme uses the featured thumbnail option for each post.
So before you post anything you will need to login into your WordPress admin area, find the menu called settings and then click on media. Next change the thumbnail settings to a width of 600px and a height of 175px. Make sure you crop the area of the image that you want to show as your featured thumbnail.
Changes I made:
I again made the side width larger. Reduced the white space on the sides of the theme. You can use any header you want the title text will stay the same. The WordPress credits in the footer is floated to the right.
I also included the Photoshop PSD file for the header. Its located in the headers folder.
Header image and single page layout has been fixed.

I just finished my first Twenty Eleven child theme for WordPress! I added a wide side bar, moved the site title on top of the header image.
The new size for the header is 1000px width X 175px height.
The font I added is called Oswald from Google fonts.
Please let me know if you have any troubles.
I forgot to add the CSS for the wp-pagenai plugin.Â After you install the theme. Upload the file pagenavi-css.css to your theme directory.
