    I have checked the source, it's Piggie Bank theme. But the designer changed it completely.

    Well, if you don't know much about web design, PHP and WordPress, the easiest way is to hire a freelancer.

    Actually I have a time, so I thought I could learn to make custom theme, which will also help me in the future.
    Any tips would be appreciated and thanks for replying.

    Start with basic CSS and HTML first, then go with PHP and only after that you can build WP themes. Thats the best way.

    You can get themes off the shelf that are a lot nicer than this. Find the theme you like, create a child theme and learn a bit of custom CSS. If you purchase a theme from a reputable developer on themeforest then you will get access to the themes support forum where you can normally ask the developer for advice on changing the theme.

    Good Luck!

    if you have some knowledge with css and html you can do that .... download his style.css and find what you want to customize or give the same look. view html source and find the element you want to change.

    i recommend you not to copy his design ... coz he is using tons of images which only increase site load time.

    try me gusta wordpress theme, and edit the homepage, you need to learn basic CSS and HTML.

    Install chrome and try to use the inspect element.

    I am already using me gusta, this theme doesn't support bulk image posting plugins, so it takes forever to upload pictures or to schedule them one by one.

    You can also use firebug to inspect elements.

    P.S
    Had no idea about the theme you're looking for.

    Actually, I am looking 9gag type of theme, but faster. All alternates are very slow, so I thought to modify some theme like which I have mentioned in first post.
