Luxury, high-end design

  • User centred

    The design had to be user centred using clear information architecture to guide visitors through the website effortlessly. The information architect had to create user journey navigating users through the site within a few clicks.

  • Information architecture

    Zest Group has a large catalogue of products and categories. There are umbrellas for ladies, men and children but also for special occasions such as weddings. Umbrellas are also listed in collections. The website showcases Zest umbrellas in close detail and using retina images.

  • Responsive design

    When Zest Group website was designed, responsive and mobile-friendly websites were only just starting to be mainstream. Zest Group were keen to be ahead of the competition. Their mobile-friendly website was one of the first ones and it proved hugely popular with their customer base.

Showcasing products

Zest Group website is the storefront for their wholesale umbrellas. Its main purpose is to show all the different designs and styles of Zest umbrellas while paying close attention to detail and showing high quality close up images of Zest products.

We needed to find a long term partnership with a UK web development company to design and develop our website and expand our wholesale business to the UK. Empire Elements were the perfect choice not only for their expertise but also for transparency and fast communication. The project was delivered in milestones just as agreed in the proposal. Empire Elements are always responsive, very helpful and detailed in their work. Their ability to listen and understand our business impressed us. We enjoyed working with them and look forward to future co-operation.
