The Best BigCommerce Site Designs
Website design is a science, and there are many different variables that can impact the success of a digital property.
To recognize retailers that are excelling at e-commerce design, BigCommerce recently announced the winners of its 2016 BigCommerce Design Awards. The Awards were judged by designers in the technology and fashion industries, and the finalists were selected based on five criteria, including originality of storefront design, storefront navigation, quality and presentation of product imagery, mobile responsiveness and product page design.
“The award winners are incredible examples of thoughtful, immersive online store design, and were selected for their ability to create beautiful online experiences,” said Mike Morello. “These businesses see the value of sharing their brand through visual storytelling, and have a captivating approach to product merchandising.”
By taking a look at these designs, other retailers can get some inspiration for their own e-commerce stores. Learn more about the finalists below:
