Have you heard of the Dawn theme? (Shopify official theme for Store 2.0, its really fast and free). I recommend this as starting point if you would like to take advantage of new feature / speed of Online Store 2.0 . You can download it here : https://github.com/Shopify/dawn , it is not yet on theme store but you should be able to upload it to your store manually

As far as Dawn, you can go to GitHub repo, https://github.com/Shopify/dawn, and download. This downloads as a zip file. You can then go to your Shopify dashboard down to sales channel and online store. Under themes you should have an option for unpublished themes and the option to add a new theme. Upload the zip file and you'll be able to use Dawn on your store.

Developers, what’s your theme development workflow?

A thing that would help is fork Dawn theme and see the conditionals. For example, show the login/signup buttons only if merchant has user accounts enabled on their store. Once you make a list of conditionals, building themes on the platform is just so much easier because now you are creating sections and snippets and linking them together, and from your second theme onwards you're making changes to the CSS and some changes to your snippets.

Another aspect is speed. Dawn is the current official Online Store 2.0 theme open sourced by Shopify for developers to begin exploring and building on. With this theme, Shopify have made it fast. And we mean fast. Scoring a consistent 98/99 on Google Page Speed Insights / Lighthouse, it paves the way for faster commerce. Remember, if you plan on developing themes based off Dawn for commercial gain, you must go through the Shopify Theme Store.2 projects | reddit.com/r/shopify | 9 Jul 2021
