Luxe is a high end Salon & Spa location in Chicago’s Roscoe Village, and they came to me wanting a high end look for their website, which had become dated and was in dire need of an update. They wanted an upscale look, so they opted for a black and white design, with a clean layout emphasizing the typography. Technical highlights include a photo slideshow with scrolling photos, a twitter feed that pulls in their latest tweets, and a scrolling news and specials sections.
I also design an online store for them using the Shopify platform. We decided to use Shopify for its design flexibility, speed, and customer support. I was able to retain a very consistent look to their main site, which is a pleasant departure from the typical plain e-commerce sites you see 95% of the time. It’s also very user friendly, so once the site was up and running the client has been able to grow the site with ease. NOTE: Site is temporarily down as the Salon revamps their product line.
