Hello, all. Now, I'm not one to get too excited about things until they happen-- preserving my excitement is something I've gotten really good at in the course of owning a business-- But, now that we're onto the testing and tweaking phase of the new Susy Jack website, I do think it's time to share a snippet or two.
Susy Jack's new home, I hope, will be a place where my products and my blogging will live side by side, in a unique space. The concept I've been working with is of creating a "home" online - and the visualization behind it has been thinking of the type of space I'd love to walk through in reality, with my customers and visitors. What kind of space would I want us to be in together? And what would our conversation be like there?
It's been amazing to work with this idea in mind, to create a site that focuses more on where my designs originate from, opens possibilities for designing in new categories, and offers an improved shopping/browsing experience for my customers... something more than a "look" - an experience I can share.
While I can't reveal the whole launch, I thought I'd post two functional elements I've added in which will be great additions - a magnifying zoom which I hope will enable visitors to "feel" the quality and detail of items as they browse (so important for smaller, more delicate pattern work, and faster than all that clicking through); and, an improved account setup...which I hope will be more convenient and easier for those of you who order repeatedly.
Finally, one of my personal favorite touches are the little rollovers for the account info area...fun details like the key in the image above. The horse above the cart (see below) being possibly my favorite of all.
OK - that's it for now...more to come very soon. x Susy
