kiriscosmetics.co.uk website design

Posted in Web Design with tags , , , on November 14, 2009 by micktay

After the success of the x-pertees.com website I was approached by an eBay seller to create an online store to sell her cosmetics products without having to pay eBay commision.  I used Cube Cart again to create this site.

The client wanted ‘Pink Girly’ colours and was extremely pleased with the end result.

The images for this site were produced using The GIMP rather than Photoshop which is what I would normally use, It is an amazingly powerful application for its small size of around 16mb. Definitely worth the download.

Redesign of x-pertees.com

The site had been lost by the owner (he didn’t renew his hosting and lost all of the files) so I had to quickly create a new store, upload all of his products and then customise it slightly. I’m quite pleased with the result and all of the back-end store system seems to be working fine.

This website is for a company that specialises in custom T-Shirt designs, they work the festival circuits providing a while you wait service but also have quite a lot of business coming in from the web, with orders sizes ranging from single unique pieces to runs in the hundreds.

I used a free PHP based cart software called CubeCart which seems to be quite popular and was quite easy to set up, I’ve had no problems customising it to meet my needs and the client is happy with the administrator section of the site. I will probably revisit this site in a short while and redesign the front end as it is still basically the same as the standard install.
