Sue Rosengard is a jewelry designer who wanted an eCommerce site that she could sell to both retail and wholesale customers. This site was built on the osCommerce platform and contains numerous customizations and improvements including custom content management tools. I will try to post more in the web design blog about the modifications done to osCommerce for this implementation.
A fellow artist recommended Ross to me. After hearing horror stories from other people about disappearing webs designers, months of going back and forth, unfinished projects, I wanted to make sure I was making a wise choice. And I did. Ross has been amazing.
He started working on the project and within about 6 weeks we had this awesome site. I was a little nervous at first because the sites of his that I saw were not quite my look. But he understood my design aesthetic and created a site that not only complements but enhances my jewelry designs. One of the many things he suggested (and we did) was a Look Book (pictures of people wearing my jewelry). It was both fun to create and adds a personal dimension to the site.
From a functionality perspective, the site is super easy to navigate and I have already gotten positive responses from my customers (and a large order). I have a very limited amount of experience (almost nil) with creating or maintaining websites but after Ross showed me how to log in and where to go I was able to easily update some basic info and content. I am looking forward to having control over my site and feeling both comfortable and confident with its upkeep.
I highly recommend Ross. He was very easy and pleasant to work with. In addition he was 100% on time with deadlines. Most importantly though, he listened to what I said I wanted and didn’t want.
