The challenge was to project an online feeling of being in the cozy store within the small-town life. We had the chance to visit the store personally and was amazed with the natural ambiance.
Initially, we researched and identified the proper e-commerce solution for them which was Magento. This allowed for a robust cart process that was also responsive to devices of all sizes. It was then on to the design of the site. To create the feeling of being in the store, the site needed to present the warm feelings which were anchored by all of the natural wood used in the store itself. The store owners, Anthony & Sue Del Bono, had already contracted a wonderful photographer in Regina Hoffman. Regina was able to bring the products to life with crystal clear images for every product page.
