Jigoshop Showcase #18: Victym

Posted in Jigoshop Showcase and tagged , , , , on by .

We love to see the great online shops which are being created using Jigoshop, and this is a series highlighting the amazing stores that have come to our attention. If you’ve gone live with an implementation of Jigoshop, and would like to be featured and promoted, email [email protected]

Victym is an art collective which aims to showcase new talent and explore new areas of design and illustration, so you can imagine that the look of their website was extremely important to them. That’s probably one reason why they picked James Kemp to design and build their site, as his previous showcase entry, for Antique clothing also shows.

We asked James about his choice to work with Jigoshop:

I originally chose Jigoshop because of the good reviews it had received. I used it again because I had a great time manipulating it the first time! I like that it uses all the core WordPress functions, making it super easy to create your own loops and make the site look and feel how you need.

So how did Victym turn out?

Victym Homepage

The homepage is pretty striking as we think you’ll agree, giving plenty of space to show off the striking artworks with a great selection of images to highlight the latest blog posts as well as the Featured Prints for sale.

And the great selection of images continues throughout the site, with the main shop page again using a clean, image-led design to lift it above the background.

The prints page is probably our favourite for the photos used – it looks great having human hands holding up the art to give the site and the artwork more personality.

And finally the product page lets you invest in the artwork, as well as tempting you with related items to add to your collection.

Seeing as it’s such a visual site, we don’t want to write too much in this post, but it’s great to see yet another stunning website which uses Jigoshop to handle the eCommerce side of the business.
