Designing a Californian Icon
Electric Eyewear is a Southern California-based brand that specializes in high-quality sunglasses and snow goggles. Founded in 2000, the company has built a reputation for its bold designs, innovative technology, and commitment to sustainability. Electric Eyewear products are sold in more than 40 countries around the world, both online and through a network of retail partners.
How this project aligns with our Sustainability Development Goals.
Despite its strong brand reputation and loyal customer base, Electric Eyewear faced a significant challenge with its e-commerce website. The existing site was outdated and difficult to navigate, with slow loading times and a confusing checkout process. This led to high bounce rates and low conversion rates, resulting in lost revenue and missed growth opportunities. Electric Eyewear knew it needed to modernize its website and provide a better user experience to remain competitive in the crowded eyewear market.
To address this challenge, we recommended a redesign of Electric Eyewear’s website on Shopify Plus, a leading e-commerce platform that offers a range of powerful tools and features. Our approach included the following steps:
- Discovery phase: We conducted a thorough analysis of Electric Eyewear’s existing website and identified areas for improvement. We also interviewed key stakeholders and gathered input from customers to inform the redesign process.
- Design phase: Using the insights from the discovery phase, we developed a new design for the website that was modern, visually appealing, and easy to navigate. We paid special attention to the mobile experience, ensuring that the site was fully responsive and optimized for all devices.
- Development phase: We built the new website on Shopify Plus, taking advantage of its advanced features and integrations. We customized the site to meet Electric Eyewear’s specific needs and requirements, including a seamless checkout process and easy integration with their existing back-end systems.
- Launch phase: We worked closely with Electric Eyewear to ensure a smooth and successful launch of the new website. This included testing and quality assurance, as well as training and support for Electric Eyewear’s internal teams.
