The Challenge


The pandemic propelled global e-commerce forward while also exposing the shortcomings of the online customer experience when compared to traditional in-person shopping.

With the ubiquity of social media and record-high online content consumption, it appears that the future of e-commerce will inevitably become more social, seamless, and, of course, more enjoyable. However, the exact nature of this transformative shift remains uncertain.

Here's what we did

Through our technical expertise, we laid the foundation for creators and brands to seamlessly unite, facilitating a harmonious blend of curation and inspiration. The outcome? A unique destination for discovery, featuring more of the newest selections thoughtfully curated by creators, all underpinned by an optimal tech stack and solid codebase.

We crafted an environment where creators and brands converge, where curation and inspiration seamlessly unite to form the ultimate hub for exploration and discovery. Here, you'll find an abundance of the latest and greatest, carefully selected by creators, exclusively for you.

Features


A strong emphasis on user-friendliness resulted in a user experience that’s both smooth and intuitive, guaranteeing that even individuals new to the system can effortlessly navigate it.

The engineering initiatives and user-centered attributes not only showcase technical excellence but also underscore a commitment to making the product accessible and beneficial to a wider user base.

For Brands


On the backend, brands have access to a dashboard with inventory, analytics and partnerships data visibility.

Both brands and creators have their own pages that users can follow, linkable for ease of discovery.

Design System


Our UI design approach was grounded in a thoughtful balance where we considered the fusion of form and function.

We curated two distinct typefaces, each chosen for its unique qualities, and seamlessly combined them to create a cohesive aesthetic. Our design choices stem from comprehensive research within our industry, ensuring a connection to established standards while also infusing customized elements that reflect the refined essence of the brand.

Technologies


The product is built on a robust and modern tech stack that combines cutting-edge technologies to deliver a seamless user experience.

We leverage a combination of frameworks, microservices architecture, and cloud infrastructure to ensure scalability, performance, and flexibility in our development process.
