Remember back in the day when we had an ugly square box with an image inside, and on the right side would be a checkout box? This used to be the generalized appearance of an online e-commerce store. Ever since we have moved completely into a brand new “pretty” digital era, where you can buy physically anything online and not hurt your eyes while doing so! At this point and time it would be much more ideal to purchase an desired item online rather than the store. Much thanks to Amazon, I have found thing to be even cheaper than what I would pay at a walk-in Target or Walmart.
While the design of an e-commerce website went from ugly to beautiful, e-commerce based web design is still plays as a huge challenge for web designers. In order to succeed you have to be unique, engaging, creative, and worry about the user experience. We all know that the top priority for any e-commerce website is to <strong>sell their products</strong>. However, overlooking design and rushing to that step is unintelligent. When I shop at a store, I want to enjoy the experience. Having an attractive e-commerce design makes me appreciate what the company offers, and creates a chance of me becoming a regular customer.
Many corporate websites have so many different things going on once you visit their home page. Sooner that you know it, you have been bombarded with information overload. Sales, discounts, promotions, buy one get one free, and much more unnecessary spam. This collection is purely about aesthetics. Personally speaking I would enjoy shopping at any of the stores mentioned below. Thanks to their attention to detail, they should stand as an example for any designer in need of inspiration.
