Designer’s Guide to Magento


The Designer's Guide to Magento has been prepared for you to learn and expand your knowledge of the structural, conceptual workings and methods of designing for Magento—It will basically teach you what you need to know to begin building a store of your own with Magento.

The documentation is largely sectioned into the following chapters and can be skipped through back and forth in order to quickly access only the information you need most. However, because each chapter acts as a prelude to the next, we advise you to follow along with the documentation in the order it was written:

  1. Magento Design Terminologies
  2. Working with Magento Themes
  3. Building Your Theme
  4. Intro to Layouts
