The process of building an e-commerce website involves many steps. After the initial brainstorming session where the requirements of the new online store are outlined and a structure for the website is decided upon, the next step is allowing the graphic designer or design team to create the look for the new website. In the case of WineMakersDepot.com, the site was already using a shopping cart system, but was in dire need of an updated look and better organization to their product listings. They came to Sea-Wing Designs to work with their developer and create a series of graphic designed photo-shop files that were then used as blueprints for the new website.
These files included the home page with the drop down menus, product pages, shopping cart page, category pages, content pages such as the about-us page, log in page, search page, shipping page, and mobile versions of all of these as this is a responsive/mobile friendly website. All of these were created to meet the requirements of the shopping cart program and the owners of the company.
Once the Graphic Design was complete, the photo-shop files were sent off to the site developers who used them to build the website. The finished product turned out to be quite nice and I encourage you to visit the website. Please leave comments below if you have any questions about our process.
