The challenge

Skin Gourmet were keen to redesign their website to better cater to their customers worldwide. Their former site was no longer fit for purpose as they found their previous UX and UI outdated and lacking core features. They didn't have a functioning online store, which made it difficult for them to market and sell to customers who were interested in their goods outside of Ghana. On top of that, they felt that the site didn't truly showcase their array of unique skincare products, and wanted a revamped site that would have their products at the center of the site, while also showcasing the brand's story and values.

The solution

With a clear brief and vision in mind from the client, I designed a modern website which really showcased their bold, colourful imagery and highlighted their suite of skincare products. I also crafted a seamless online shopping experience, making it easy for their customers worldwide to get their hands on Skin Gourmet's products.

Users are given a clean and simple overview of the product they're interested in. Large, high quality product photos give users an idea of what they're buying, with additional product info and ingredients also being available to read up on. Users can also add products to their bag and get an overview of what they're currently looking to buy.
