Client faced us with quite a few challenges:
- artist marketplace
- large images upload and storage
- image protection and editor
- composite product types
- RTL layout and multi-language (Arabic, English) store
We created a modern mobile-first responsive website with the native feel on smartphones, working across a wide variety of platforms and browsers. This website proves that, if executed the right way, responsive websites perform better than websites with separate layouts prepared for different devices.
Cloud storage and processing allows access to storage at any time and turning off some of the default Magento features made the platform as light as possible.
Unique slider on the homepage shows that we are on a site that strongly values beautiful art creations. Pastel colours pervade clean and simple design in order to provide a wonderful user experience. In addition, the site is not cluttered and you know exactly where you are at all times.

Design lightness and organized galleries follow the idea of beautiful art creations store.
