SYWorkwear Custom Shopify Theme
SYWorkwear needed their Shopify store redesigning as their current design wasn't mobile responsive. They also wanted everything to be customizable in the theme settings.
I started out by sketching some references. It doesn't look like much, but I find that it gives me an opportunity to explore ideas quickly, especially when the brief is so open ended.
Once I had some idea of the plan, i opened up Adobe XD and made a hi-fi wire-frame and submitted it for feedback.
Whilst discussing the redesign with them, we managed to nail down what was really required.
- The new, more subtle, color scheme was approved
- 3 Featured collections should be shown above the fold on the homepage
- An image gallery should be present on the homepage
- The hero banner should be much smaller (to accommodate the collections)
I went ahead and made those changes, and added on designs for the product, collection, blog, article, static page and cart templates, as well as a slide-in search box (see images).
Once the design was approved, I started with Theme Kit and implemented a blank version of the design onto their Shopify store, then I just had to add theme settings to every block.
