“WE WILL NOT BE PUT IN A TEMPLATE”
The pitch from Suns was loud and clear: “We want to move to a Shopify platform, but we want total control of the design.”
The sunglass brand did not want to be limited by the platform’s predefined theme templates. Instead, they wanted to create a webshop with a look, tailor-made to the identity of the brand. Alpha Solutions was ready to lift the digital part of the business to a higher level and give the webshop a unique design.
STRONG FRONTEND WORK ON A SECURE PLATFORM
Suns had some experiences from a former e-commerce solution but wished a change in platform to Shopify in order to get more features and create a better foundation for scaling their business. As is the case with other companies with a strong brand focus, there was a concern at Suns about being restricted in Shopify’s templates and not being able to create their own universe.
With a focus on features and third-party tools is was determined that Shopify was the right choice. Alpha Solutions took on the challenge and transformed a simple template to the unique design that Suns brought along.
The solution is a great example that the concern of using standard templates should not hold online shops back in choosing a Shopify solution, even if you wish to have a strong branding.
A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE GROWTH
With a Shopify solution, Suns has now the right foundation for future growth. The platform is perfectly suited for newly established companies who wants to enter the market fast and add new features along the way without the requirement of heavy development and many resources.
Alpha Solutions has helped Suns on their journey that started with a wish about unique design, and now has resulted in a tailored and brand designed webshop. Besides helping with setting up the Shopify platform, its development and payment functions, Alpha Solutions has also consulted about online marketing and e-commerce.
Suns is headquartered in the heart of Nørrebro, Copenhagen and was founded because of the great affection for underplayed design and quality to a fair prize. The self-designed sunglasses are produced by Italian materials in southern Italy and are sold online and in a selection of local stores.
