Today Jaded Pixel released Vision and if youre a web-designer you really should be involved in this…
Vision is a downloadable tool which runs a virtual instance of Shopify right on your computer. Its strength is that it lets you create themes without all the hassles of having to install web and database servers just to see what your theme looks like.
Simply put, we built Vision because it makes good business sense.
Its no secret that the look and feel of an online shop is one of the most important factors consumers consider when determining if they trust an online shop. For that reason alone, it is very important to us that we give designers the best possible tools to help them develop Shopify themes. Well designed online shops will always generate more sales because people believe that a professional design means the creators of the site care about selling online and will provide a better service.
For designers, using Vision also makes good business sense since it means you can built and test your designs more quickly and thus collect a higher margin on your design fees. Since we anticipate that there will be a fast growing market for Shopify theme designers, now would be a good opportunity to make a name for yourself.
Shopify Design Challenge
In order to help designers get used to working with Vision, Jaded Pixel is launching the Shopify Theme Challenge. Competitors can win a 1 gig iPod Nano if there themes are chosen to be include with Shopify. You can read more about it on the Jaded Pixel Blog.
