Major New Website for Oshino Lamps UK & USA
New website for lighting manufacturer Oshino Lamps UK & USA. The culmination of several months planning has resulted in the completion of a major new website that levers the power of Modx to list an entire product base.
Oshino Lamps has been manufacturing lighting for industry, signs, aerospace and automotive applications for more than 80 years. The UK branch of the company is based in Nottingham and I'm proud to have worked alongside the management team to develop a website that is set to become a major part of their sales drive in the UK and the USA.
The Technology Behind Oshino Lamps UK Website
I transferred the website from Magento to Modx in a methodical and staged way. With nearly 2,000 products to port over, I'm glad to say it went extremely well.
With a vast array of products split into several categories and sub-categories the challenge with this project was to display items logically and enable the site visitor to find products efficiently and with the minimum of fuss.
The upper navigation system expands to show the complete sub-category section of each main category meaning that each product listing is available in just one click.
The initial brief for the website included a slight re-design of the logo to bring it up to date and also the creation of the strap-line "Someone you know is using Oshino". I felt this line expressed the popularity of the Oshino brand.
We hope the Oshino Lamps website grows to become a world leader in its field just as the company itsself has.
