There are plenty of block packages out there, but in my opinion none of them strike the perfect balance of simplicity and customizability quite like GenerateBlocks. Much like it’s sister theme, GeneratePress, GenerateBlocks is deceivingly powerful, allowing me to create just about anything I need with just a handful of blocks. This modular approach works perfectly with my philosophy of not overcomplicating things with too many bells and whistles.

GeneratePress has been my go-to theme, even when I was building with other builders (like Elementor or Beaver Builder). It’s extremely lightweight, has very thoughtful features that give you more flexibility than you might initially realize, and has a great team behind them. Of course it pairs perfectly with my block package of choice (GenerateBlocks), but is compatible with any other block package or builder that allows you to pick your theme.
