02 Website Design
Studying the Client’s Business

Based on the brand and marketing focused assessment of Effect Audio’s eCommerce site, we created new copy for Effect Audio’s site that would emphasize its key selling points, with greater marketing impact. Here are some examples.

Web Design and Development

Effect Audio’s website was also revamped to improve functionality, ease-of- navigation and style. On top of implementing a style that mirrored the colours in Effect Audio’s logo, additional features include sorting function for products, breadcrumb navigation and re-designed page banners.
