Two of the most influential people in WordPress theme production are StudioPress's Brian Gardner (creator of the Genesis Framework) and Orman Clark (a top author at ThemeForest). This was originally released as a free design in PSD format by Orman. Brian saw it and got permission to code it as a Genesis child theme. In other words, you can expect nothing but quality from this theme.

The Genesis Framework is included with Backcountry. If you already own the framework, you can get this theme at a discount.
