Your Store Design

This guide is written for experienced designers and frontend developers, as well as for merchants with an eye for design. Our mission is to explain the rules of the road, show you where things are kept, and how to get things done.

Magento Go is an object-oriented environment, with every page assembled from separate components. In the beginning, you might find this approach to require a different way of thinking, because there is no single HTML page that corresponds to any given page. However, this is also why so many designers love Magento, because once you understand the basics, you can do just about anything imaginable. The best way to learn is to jump in and experiment with your ideas, and see what you can do!

In this material, you will learn about page layout, and how to position content on the page using blocks and frontend apps. You will also learn what might be considered to be the more common aspects of web design, including working with cascading style sheets (CSS) and implementing JavaScript interactions. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself ready to put the “how to” aside, and focus your energy on creating attention-seizing and crowd-pleasing designs for your online store.
