Full-scale Magento to Shopify Plus migration and replatforming for global women's jewellery brand, CARAT* London
Serving a global marketplace from a Magento-based eCommerce platform, the CARAT* London team approached us for help with re-platforming the business onto a more cost effective, simpler-to-manage enterprise sales system. As well as leading a migration from one technical platform to the next, Shopify Plus, we also modernised the site's design to provide a sleeker, more sophisticated responsive experience.

The most flexible and fullscreen homepage possible. All sections are video enabled for a truly dynamic page.
Top-level collections are used to further refine the product offering to each user. Again, a flexible grid was used so that the page will look great with any amount of content.
Being a lifestyle brand, Carat* utilises their beautiful imagery throughout the collection pages.
Beautiful imagery creates a dynamic and visually exciting product page. Key eCommerce functionality remains in place on all screen sizes.
A clean and minimal 50/50 grid is used to house the news feed. Carat* are an excellent example of how best to use articles to boost search performance.
With a huge social following and shopping on Instagram implemented, we allow site visitors to shop via their instagram feed. Hugely positive results are always seen by companies that use their Instagram effectively.
