Challenge

The main challenge for any developer is to bring the ideas of a designer into life, and keep the balance between a functional product that works with no hitches and all the beauty and soul that were put in the mockups of the project.

We were chosen as the developers for this project, working with a ready-to-implement design. The main request from the customer’s side was to make the website look strictly as it is in the mockups prepared by the designer.

Apart from that, the refreshed version of the website should correspond to the latest requirements for a modern website: fast-loading speed, easy-to-understand navigation across the website, and responsiveness on multiple screen sizes.

Solution

The website is custom-developed and optimised to correspond to the initial layout. We worked side by side with the designer to make it look and work perfectly on all screen sizes.

The well thought out navigation makes it simple to find what you’re looking for in just a few steps.

The “Best Sellers” and “New Arrivals” sections were created to give an idea on the spices and herbs beloved by many and those that have just arrived to etch into the heart of the exacting buyer.

Logotype
Colours
The design was provided to us in its entirety, but some font and layout changes were made as we developed the website. A palette of colours is used in each section to pick out the various categories.

The overall design layout is authentic and one-of-a-kind, that's exactly why we custom-developed each page and took care on the functional side of the project: easy and fast purchasing process, diversity of payment methods available, and security.
Fonts
Rainier North
The inspiration to create the Rainier type family came during a summer in the Pacific Northwest. The concept behind it may be simple - a hand crafter font family - but what it delivers is quite complex!
Relato
Relato has a low contrast and a "muscular" structure that makes it useful for setting longer text. In display sizes it has a variety of details that lends it a unique and personal expression. The formal principle of the serif, the variety of terminal strokes and the combination of curves and semi-straight lines gives the Relato a more "human" flavour.

We approached purpleplanet to accompany our long-term design partner, to develop the redesigned version of our e-commerce store. Our wish was to make the finished website look just as it is in the design prototypes.

We really love working with Matt and the purpleplanet team - they are quick to respond to every request we have, and apply changes efficiently and effectively. That was the main reason we also hired purpleplanet for our ongoing website maintenance. We are sure that everything works perfectly well, and even if something becomes broken, the purpleplanet team will get it fixed in no time.
