Standout Shopify Information
ELEVATE THE E-COMMERCE EXPERIENCE
Design & develop virtual storefronts that stand out from the digital crowd—and send ideal high-ticket clients knocking at your door.
WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES, A browser window OPENS
Since the lockdown, many businesses have closed their physical stores and moved to a new address: their website domain. Now’s your chance to help them set up shop online, but what if you can’t figure it out on your own? Luckily, becoming a Shopify expert is now within reach.
To effectively build your expertise in Shopify, mastering the architecture of one theme is key. This technical expertise will also allow you to properly scope and price projects. And to make sure that you have the best learning experience, we provide a premium theme exclusive to Standout Shopify students. After mastering this premium theme, you can easily adapt the concepts to customize ANY Shopify theme (free or paid). More so, you’ll learn how to build your own theme (if you are inclined to), similar to how we approached building Esencia. This can be a source of more scalable income in the future.
This course teaches you how the website builder works in the most hands-on way: setting up this exclusive base template so you can use & modify it for all your future sites. It’s still Shopify, just without all your usual design constraints.
We packed Esencia Theme, the premium theme we developed exclusively for Standout Shopify students, with the most sought-after eCommerce features such as color swatches, cart drawer, mega menu, content tabs, marquee and more!
These section templates can be added to any page (product, about, contact et al). These sections can be added to ANY SHOPIFY THEME as well.
Here’s what you’ll get:
Level One: SHOPIFY Fundamentals
Every exceptional online shop starts with a blueprint. Before we even dig into the code, let’s explore the Shopify 2.0 design & development workflow from strategy to launch.

HI THERE, I’M Rache
I am a self-educated web designer & developer on a mission to enable creative entrepreneurs to build standout sites.
You might know me by my signature course, Standout™️ Squarespace. But what you might not know is that I didn’t have any coding knowledge from the start. When I quit my job as a chemical engineer, all I had was the determination to try something different.
Learning the code was far from easy. I made lots of mistakes untangling pages of Google results & forum threads, trying to make CSS snippets from strangers work. Sometimes they did. More often I spent hours troubleshooting the error later.
I started Standout™️ because I sincerely believe that web design & development shouldn’t feel confusing or frustrating. It can also be a rewarding & fulfilling career with the right guidance.
Standout Shopify is just another way for me to help you get there. And I would love any chance to accompany you on your next step towards your dream business. Can’t wait to see what you’ll create.
