Behind the Design Link

As always, here are some insights from the designer:

“Attractive! Alluring! Beauty! Desire! Glamour is an impression that we wanted you to have by looking at this theme. Velvet Sky has become an e-commerce theme that provides an atmosphere full of charm. We did a lot of customization; the featured product on homepage, the category product page, the product details. Velvet Sky is our humble attempt to provide a feeling of comfort in shopping experience. We worked hard to make sure that customers can found the items needed without being confused. Support your customers well, and start out by building a personal relation between you and your customers. We hope that you’ll find the theme useful for your projects.”

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

        Hello Mahada. I am also grateful to come across such a beautiful PS theme. Bravo!

        However, I am a starting to panic because despite trying every suggestion from the PS forum, the newsletter function is broken in velvet sky. Just like it is broken on daprupixel’s demo site.

        It seems that you are part of the development team, which is why I’m hoping that you can say if there are any live examples of velvet sky’s newsletter function actually working.

          Hi Prestajockey, I want to respond to your comments about the velvet sky themes, these themes actually released in version so if there is an install in the latest version might be an error because it is not compatible, such as “block newsletter or comboslider” Dapurpixel already have 1.4.3 update themes velvet sky, if you want you can send emails to contacts Dapurpixel. : D

    Thank you so much for you hard work! I know how much work can go into designing and building shops. The result is beautiful and polished. I’m not a fan of the color though, maybe you could make another version in a different color, if you have the time? Or is the PSD included? I think the forms look very dark and might scare of costumers a bit. Otherwise loving it. Very nice and clear product pages too. Keep it up.

    Very good. Nice theme for wordpress.
