WordPress Theme for Factor5 Software

A custom WordPress theme for Factor5 Software. I built this independently as a freelancer and used the WordPress Gutenberg API to build custom blocks.
I used Sass in the WordPress theme to build out the brand styling and compiled the project using Gulp.

Shopify Theme for Somebuddy Loves You

A custom Shopify theme for a fashion boutique in Melbourne, Australia.
I worked closely with a designer to build out this theme and enable as much dashboard configuration as possible. I also helped with the migration of the products from the legacy site by building a custom Node.js application that uses the Shopify Rest API.
