The flow, function and aesthetic of your site is paramount to your success as an online business. Why? Simple: design elicits emotion and how your customer feels about your brand determines if they buy from you or a competitor instead.
Beyond just the way it looks, though, it also needs to function properly and conveniently. Full site search, for instance, is a necessity, especially if you have a multitude of items that you’re selling. Navigation must remain consistent, ideally product photos are sized identically and your fonts and colors match throughout.
You might think all of this is branding 101, but the design you choose to implement for your online business can make these necessities difficult to implement, or something you don’t even have to think about (i.e. the design does it automatically). Which would you choose?
