Magento, an open source e-commerce web application, is often a good choice for an e-commerce website. The system is quite powerful and the community around the product is strong, making Magento one of the first options to consider when choosing an engine for your online shop.
In this post we present our first Magento-release: a simple and beautiful HelloWired Magento Theme, designed by HelloThemes1 and released especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers. The theme features a clean white background with a simple navigation that will allow you to customize the colors very easily.

The homepage of the theme features many interactive elements. To the left of the newsletter sign-up box you’ll find a jQuery-based product slider. When navigating on a category page, the theme features polished “Add To Cart” buttons; it also integrates a lightbox for preview images of your products and e-commerce icons ready to be used. As usual, the theme is absolutely free to use in all your projects.
