Project Description

Set up your own custom-designed shop


Your assignment is to set up and customize your own Big Cartel store. Start fresh or, if you have a shop already, this is a great way to give it a new fresh coat of paint. You’ll set up the pages you need, walk through design choices, and plan how you’ll promote the shop. Your goal is to create a stand-out shop to represent your brand and sell your goods!


Share your shop in the Skillshare project gallery. We’d love to see your process along the way. A complete project will include:

  • URL of your shop
  • screenshots of your shop
  • description of your design goals for the shop
