Features

The Polaroid theme includes the following features:


  • the Polaroid effect is made with CSS3. The product grid displays products in random orientations.
  • Product zoom: the category page was spiced up by adding a zoom functionality to the product grid. When you mouse over a product, it zooms in to show the product in more details.
  • The .zip-package also contains additional modules “Best Sellers”, “Features Products”, “New Products”, and “Multi Shipping”.

    Behind the design

    As always, here are some insights from the designers:

    We wanted to go beyond the boundaries of Magento and break the usual design patterns. We really wanted to try something new, add rich CSS3 features to the Magento theme and experiment a bit with its different features. We are very pleased to share this theme with the community, especially with Smashing Magazine readers.

    Thank you, guys. We appreciate your work and your good intentions.
