The client is a consumer cosmetic manufacturer who wanted a new website with a modern look and responsive design. The client also sells their product via the website and wanted an eCommerce capability built in, as well as a CMS so that they could manage the site’s content after the site went live.
The website had a number of challenges including a complex layout which involved displaying blog article posts with their associated content, titles, and images in a number of varying layouts. Further, some of the site’s pages were a challenge to build as responsive layouts due to the complexity of the design and tabular layouts. Further, the client wanted to use 3DCart as its eCommerce/shopping cart provider (they were already familiar and comfortable with 3DCart from their existing website). Since 3DCart is a hosted solution, the 3DCart site needed to be themed separately and then linked from the primary website.
Outright built a responsive website that functioned well when viewed from a desktop, tablet, or smartphone browser. The site was based on WordPress, and leveraged 3DCart as its eCommerce platform. The site contained the following features/functionality:
- HTML5, CSS3, jQuery
- Responsive, full screen slider
- Blog content displayed with multiple layouts leveraging substitute titles and images
- 3DCart eCommerce integration
- Store locator functionality
- Email sign up integration with Constant Contact
- Press/news section
- ShareThis integration
- Social media connections
