Case Study: An ecommerce website with a community focus for Yoga Hive.

The Yoga Hive website uses WordPress as a CMS and uses the WooCommerce plugin to create a full, online shop. The site also features an online community of members and contributors. It is fully responsive and user-friendly on mobile phones and tablets.

The Design Process

This was a redesign for an existing eCommerce site with a large number of products. The site had become difficult to maintain on its current CMS so we moved the site over to WordPress with a WooCommerce store so that it would be easy to manage going forward. It was also time to freshen up the look and build on the community.

Before jumping into design, we reviewed the goals of the site to create a solid content strategy. We then created wireframes based on these goals and after some refinements finalized two design choices.
