Out of the Sandbox Theme Details
Behind the scenes at Out of the Sandbox, three different teams work closely together in order to hand-craft a lasting, performance-driven product. Teresa, Head of Marketing, explained it to me this way. She stated, “Product managers are responsible for coming up with strategies for new theme ideas and updates, based on eCommerce trends, customer feedback, competitive analysis, and more.”
Then, product designers shape the theme for optimum user experience for both the theme installer (store owner) and future shoppers. Finally, the development team utilizes industry-leading techniques to create a theme fitting the above criterium, optimizing speed, organization, and usability. The result? From beginning to end, themes from Out of the Sandbox are intentionally built and crafted to allow your online store to reach optimum success.
Providing an abundance of variety, Out of the Sandbox offers seven main themes, with multiple unique design variants for each. While most themes sold by other developers include 3-4 different styling options of each, Out of the Sandbox surpasses the competition. One of their most popular themes, Flex, includes 13 different variant style options - all included under the single theme purchase.
