Inspired by Swiss mid-century design, this theme is all about clean white space, bold and highly legible fonts, and high-contrast colours. It all combines to create a design that’s intended not to detract from the focus of your store — selling products.
Why München? Well, I’m glad you asked. Two reasons:
1. Münchenstein, a small town tucked away in the Swiss Alps, is the birthplace of one of the most universally applied and aesthetically pleasing fonts designed in modern times — Helvetica. It’s so awesome that it’s been rated number one on FontShop Germany’s list, “Best Fonts of All Time” and there’s even a documentary about it (aptly named “Helvetica”). Every font in the theme — including the logo, headings and body copy — is Helvetica Neue, a later reworking that improved legibility and made it translate especially well to digital media. We abbreviated the name Münchenstein to be a little easier on the eye.
2. Umlauts are über cool.
