After beavering away for most of the summer I’m pleased to announce the launch of Mad Dogs and Englishmen an interiors and furniture store based in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex and StockYoyo a site dedicated to helping people learn the art of investing.
Mad Dogs and Englishmen
As a Magento ecommerce site, Mad Dogs and Englishmen has product comparisons, wishlists, newletters, search and much much more.
The site also uses SSL, has a one page checkout and has prominently displayed contact and about us information.
Highlights of the Mad Dogs and Englishmen site include;
- Over 3,000 products for sale online
- A thumbnailed furniture finishes gallery
- Homepage and bespoke kitchens slideshow
- Sprite and gzip use, to compress all those images
- Magento, prototype, php and css based
The site makes great use of vector imagery and a bright colour scheme. Google fonts have been applied to give titles a quirky style, with icons and buttons sprite based, to keep the site fast loading.
StockYoyo.com was created using ASP.NET, CSS, SQL and JQuery, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Visual Studio.
The project also included logo and email design and features a dynamic twitter feed, JQuery to add an odd row class for styling, drag and drop functionality and a slideshow promo.
