I’m going to be honest – I wasn’t sure on this one at first. It’s an e-commerce site from Sporting Dog Pro out of Charlotte, North Carolina. I wasn’t sure about it, because my perspective is slightly skewed – I see agency and portfolio sites 20 times daily, and might get to see a site like this come across every once in a while. This site may seem a little heavy with a lot of textures, but I think they know their audience well enough to tailor their site and design to that target market. I think it is still hard to do a good e-commerce / shopping site that has hundreds of little integrations with the back-end / shopping system (in this case Magento) – and make the site look and move well for the customer. It’s responsive, and I think the mega-dropdowns with the dog pics work. Again – it’s not the type of site you normally see on Unmatchedstyle – but we can tell a lot of work went into it to make it not be just a junky shopping site.
Would be interested in your thoughts too – look at it as a designer – and look at it as a possible customer – what do you see in each instance (I bet it’s different).
