E-commerce website revamp and change of platform with responsive theme.
Site URL: www.shioktoys.com
Client: Shiok Toys
Duration: 2 months
Kelvin Loke is the owner of a retail business of pop-culture collectibles. He approached me to redesign the entire website. I recommended Magento platform as I have been working on the platform for the past 6 years and one of the most powerful open source E-commerce platform.
I designed and developed the site using Magento platform. The responsive theme customised for his shop and it works across all type of devices.
We wanted to avoid scrolling in the homepage. Thus, I used the FlexSlider effect to display 10 products from each main category.
I used flat colours and product-centric approach. The bold dark design lends itself to clean minimalist interface. So the design didn’t need to be complex. The most challenging part was to migrate all the database into the Magento platform. There were tons of images in the gallery and I have to import them in the new platform. Customer and sales database updated with script in the backend.
It took me 2 months to complete the site.
