CrystalCase.com will be the go-to site on the internet for all types of crystal case accessories. Crystal cases for smart phones, cells, eReaders, tablets, and more.
There are many other sites on the web that sell crystal/rhinestone cases, but they are very difficult to navigate and it can be difficult to make purchases in just a few clicks. Therefore our goal with this site is to make it clean and easy to use.. Please think Apple Store or something with a similar look and feel (but obviously NOT a copy of that site).
Of course the site does not have to be white or grey in look, use color if you would like. We would just like the design to accent the products, not overpower them. Let the crystals work with your design and be a part of the process.
So we are looking for a clean, polished, bright, friendly, comfortable feeling site that encourages people to purchase products without being pushy.
There is no current site, but we do have template constraints. You can see the layout in the attached documents. You can use dummy text or use any text you want. You must use our logo though.
We may want to add live chat. Please show versions with and without live chat.
NOTE: This design is for the BigCommerce Ecommerce platform. If you have prior experience with this platform, please indicate this to us in an email or note with your submission.
The target audience is 18-45 year old women who are looking for an easy way to buy crystal cases and accessories.
Try the use of icons. This simplifies the design and look and sets the site apart from others. Gives the target audience a more relaxed feel when they buy. Can use on navigation and titles. Also can use combo of icons and words.
