About the Shopify business

Dripp Empire is a business brand that is working in the clothing and fashion industry.

Describe the experience

The narrative theme is really easy to use. Although it has its limitations, the way it is structured makes it simple for any user. The only problem I could find however was finding the correct image size and dimensions. I want my website to run fast and I find myself playing with the dimensions of an image and exploring that image with less than 100kb of storage.

About the Shopify business

Colourful all-over print on demand clothing. Launched out of curiosity during the pandemic. Targeted at young adults looking for splash of creativity to their wardrobe.

Describe the experience

This is one of the best free themes available. Very useful, with lots of good features. It is more appealing than simple, minimalist ones and elegant. Design of the mobile version is modern and responsive. Easy to navigate if there are not so many pages. My shop uses only minimum number of sections so it was perfect. Drop down menu is efficient and it's animation is pleasing. Overall it is a solid theme for shops centered on one product or a category without too many pages. It looks best with big visuals and less text.

Feedback or suggestions for the theme developer

Sometimes the drop down menu and shop cart buttons have a box outline on mobile. It doesn't look good. Adding different animations on elements would be nice. And an option to choose different styles of drop down menu too.

Describe the experience

I think currently the theme is very good but they can improve a footer to more options.
I selected Narrative theme because it has the modern look of a store and as my products are also need some attractive look so i installed and configured the theme myself.
