ARK Crystals

We built a hybrid marketing and e-commerce site to educate ARKcrystals users about their products and sell them.

Introduction

Ark Crystals wanted to redesign their website and have it serve two main purposes: to educate the user about their products and to sell those products. We helped them achieve both visions.

The
Challenge

Although Ark Crystals sells products like any other eCommerce store, this project had the added challenge of needing to educate the user on how their products work. Because each product is so unique, we weren’t able to use templates and instead had to devise a way to make each product stand out to the user and to sell them on the nature of the products themselves. This required a lot of testing on our end to determine how best to meet all the needs of the client.

The
Solution

We evaluated the existing site to determine what was working, what wasn’t, and how best to improve the design to both educate the user on how the products work, as well as selling the products themselves. Because Ark was a high-end brand that had great photos, we were able to play around with interesting layouts.

Our approach was a minimalst approach, letting the high-end photography and the beautiful products do a lot of the heavy lifting with the visuals. After designing the site, we developed a testing plan where we used Crazy Egg to A/B test certain screens, and then we tweaked our design based on those findings.

Evaluation

We evaluated the existing site to determine what parts of it we could improve upon, and what parts we were able to keep with minor tweaks.

Design

Our approach was a minimalist design because we had a lot of assets from the clients that we wanted the user to focus on.

Crazy Egg allowed us to A/B test our designs and figure out what needed to be tweaked and what was working well.

Testing

Based on the results of our tests, we made edits to the design, such as with the location of buttons to make them easier to find.
