Rustik is one of the most simple minimalist themes ever created. According to most of the people who have already got this theme, it makes an amazing photography portfolio, because of its clean design and large homepage slider which shows photos in great detail.
Except for the portfolio part, Rustik also has WooCommerce integrated, allowing you to transform your theme into an online shop any time you want, just with the help of a few clicks.
Why Rustik is a Great Choice for Your Store
As we already mentioned, Rustik is a great minimalist theme and it’s compatible with WooCommerce. Those two facts alone are enough to convince a lot of people that this is a good eCommerce theme. But there’s more. One of the most important things to note is that Rustik gets perpetual updates. In other words, once you buy this theme, you won’t have to worry about going out of fashion. Your purchase is going to get regularly updates, fixing bugs and introducing new features. At the moment, Rustik is in its third major version since its release three years ago.
We all know that eCommerce is all about product placement and how you interact with your visitors once they land on your homepage. This is why Rustik has 17 widget areas. You can customize the layout of your online store and optimize it for your audience. Most of those areas are flexible, meaning that you can fit a few widgets in the same space.
Also, a single sale isn’t going to ensure that your customers will come again and purchase again. Having a newsletter is the most popular way of capturing people’s emails and sending them information about sales and new products. Rustik is integrated with both AWeber and MailChimp. Those are two of the biggest newsletter services. With their help you can easily create newsletters, subscription forms, and start gathering emails.
More About the Design
Rustik is fully responsive. Whether you are browsing from a mobile phone, a laptop, or a PC, it won’t matter. Everything is displayed perfectly, thanks to the well-written code and perfectly implemented responsiveness.
Rustik also comes with two predefined color schemes – light and dark. Those are a great starting point if you don’t have much time on your hands and you want to launch your site instantly. Of course, if you would like something more personalized, you can always use the live customizer to change the colours of the different elements.
Speaking of customization, the theme has a logo and favicon upload feature. Apart from that, you can also upload icons for Apple. Sidebars can also easily be customized, meaning that you can create custom menus for your online store or portfolio. The menu management is also very easy and at an advanced level. There is nothing better than a good site navigation, making your visitors’ browsing experience excellent.
A Few Final Notes
As a final note we would like to say that the theme comes with its PSD files included. You can easily edit those in Photoshop and create buttons and elements which are unique to you.
The documentation of the theme is also very easy to understand. It also includes several video tutorials, covering both the basics and entering some of the more advanced topics. However, the theme doesn’t require any previous experience with WordPress in order to install or use it. In case you have problems with the installation process, you can always turn to the documentation.
