Nike

Nike

Nike has recently made some notable UX changes to their product page.

  1. More visuals
    The left hand gallery is split into two columns and consists of a auto looping video of a model shot. This allows the users to view the product in multiple angles without a single click or scroll.
  2. Colour options as photos
    Instead of a traditional dropdown for a colour selector, they are using photos to easily communicate other designs available in the same range.
  3. Show all sizes as buttons
    Dropdown size selector has been replaced with a clean selectable table that shows all available sizes. This eliminates an extra click users usual would need to make in a traditional ecommerce site and allows them to see stock availability immediately.

It’s clear they have put their focus on giving their online customers as much information as possible with minimal action required from them. Thumbs up!

 

AurateAurate categoryAurate cuff earring

Aurate is a young New York based jewellery brand with a simple, well curated online shop.

  1. Brand voice on filters
    Aurate have a clean simple filter on their category page with a small touch of brand voice. By including phrases like ‘I know what I want’, ‘I’m looking for’ to the filters, it adds personality to the site. Furthermore, they engage with the target customers by speaking in their tone of voice.
  2. A video can speak a thousand images
    Aurate uses well curated product videos to effectively show off their products. Videos are great in showing the scale and usage of products, so the customers don’t have to figure it out for themselves.

 

Concluding thought

In recent days, the world of ecommerce web design seem to be opening up to trying innovative ways to engage with customers. It’s evolving quickly away from just focusing on large imagery with screaming call to actions, to something more user-focused. And delivering a memorable brand experience to their online users. These were just a few picks we wanted to share with you this month and we’d love to hear your thoughts too.
