This theme is fantastic, I did some customisation and Pixel Union helped me out with some queries so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this for any store! My online sweet shop looks awesome, thanks for a brilliant theme and support.

This theme is very good for small shops selling very few products or a startup showcasing it's services and what so. Great design, simple and minimalistic. The team at Pixel Union is very supportive. I had an issue with something and they responded fairly quickly. Thumbs up!

Fantastic theme. And aftercare even better. Kate and the team goes above and beyond. Couldn't have been happier! Thanks a lot Pixel Union!

Really not a great theme. Not very customization friendly. For example you can't put a "page" on the homepage. This kind of kills quite a few things I wanted to do like add a questionnaire form. Not only that they limit how many of each block you can put on the front page. Kind of annoyed by it since I have worked with quite a few themes, this one is too stiff. Would not recommend. $180 wasted.
