[ Challenges ]
Making a little go
a long way
We could only make changes to the homepage.
The need for validation
All major modifications would need to be A/B tested.
The general design of the system had to be preserved.
Building in flexibility
The homepage needs to be easily modifiable for time-sensitive events, such as sales promotions and brand partnerships.
[ Approach ]
Modules were the ideal solution to this challenge. Why? Because they’re perfect for e-commerce sites that regularly need updating. And because they give clients the flexibility to add and adapt content as their needs change.
With a modular design, clients can set components freely (following our expert recommendations, of course). Their website is easier to maintain. And they have the power to choose different elements for specific types of content and promotional activities.
As designers, we love modules for their convenience when creating e-commerce sites. We can focus on a specific module, polish each element of it, and easily remember all the states. What’s more, we can be confident the website will always look great, thanks to the clear and practical guidelines we create for each client.
The eobuwie website features an editorial section. It plays an important role in promoting specific brands, presenting new arrivals, and inspiring the user to explore the range. We created five different versions of this section, giving the client much-needed flexibility and creative options.
Inspiring users was one of our main goals. We also needed to show that there’s more to eobuwie than just shoes, and that many other accessories are available too. We designed an outfits section that shows off the full range, while also promoting products from Modivo – eobuwie’s sister fashion brand.
Impactful product carousels
We created various versions of the product carousel, each with different colours, layouts and elements. This was important, as we wanted to give eobuwie a solution for every situation, every promotional activity, and every idea they have for presenting products to their users.
[ Results ]
A fresher, more
Gone is eobuwie’s old, ineffective and visually underwhelming homepage. In its place, we’ve created a new, vibrant and altogether more inspiring version. One that showcases the full range of products from various brands. And which has almost endless potential for customisation.
32 unique components
We created 32 modules to use on the homepage.
12 product modules
The product sections are the most important parts of the homepage. We built 12 product modules, allowing eobuwie to customise the page for any promotions they need to run.
8,500 possible homepage versions
With the new modules, over 8,500 different page versions are possible. That’s a lot of potential to get your head around. So, to make it more tangible for our client, we provided clear and precise guidelines for how to build the site from the blocks we’d created.
“We wanted to create a Lego-like tool for eobuwie, with guidelines to help them create different versions of the site to suit their needs at any given moment.”
