Clean, minimal design
Keep the focus on your products and messaging with Motion’s clean and minimal design style.
Big, beautiful imagery
Large edge-to-edge photos, animations, video, and slideshows let your imagery shine.
One of the most effective ways to differentiate your brand is through typography and we’ve designed Motion with large, simple typography that will put your style front and center.
Optimized for readability
Smooth, subtle overlays and gradients help keep your text readable when placed over photography.
Compact mobile design
Mobile users have less patience for scrolling so we’ve kept the mobile design as compact as possible, with simple expandable areas for those that want more.
Designed for smooth animation
Motion is designed from start to finish to smoothly and elegantly animate your content into view. Choose from our animation types to see what best fits your brand or disable them altogether.
Animate between pages for a more seamless shopping experience.
