The second project of the year has successfully shipped: Minimalissimo Shop Version 2.
I don’t know why I held WordPress in such high regard for so many years—it’s Starbucks of the CMS world. So migrating my sites over to Kirby is a great feeling. The latest of which was the Minimalissimo Shop. It was a fun little project I worked on with Manu Moreale.
We wanted to simplify the design, but most importantly, we wanted to simplify the shopping cart and checkout process. So we decided to build a super-lite backend with Kirby to house the product catalogue, and integrate a Shopify cart and checkout. It was really as simple as that.
I made the design, and Manu coded it. We also experimented with a new typeface called Inter by Rasmus Andersson. It’s a beautiful type design, so I’m seriously considering using this for the next major project, which is a complete overhaul of Minimalissimo.
The only other notable change was a new domain name we bought: minimalissimo.shop
A nice touch I think.
From here, besides trying to market the shop a little more effectively, I want to work with other creators and brands to produce designs that are exclusive to the Minimalissimo Shop. So if you’d like to discuss any ideas, please get in touch.
