XHTML OS Commerce Shop

Bespoke Website Package

Harry from King John's Nursery & Gardens came to us with a very clear vision of what he wanted for his website redesign. Prior to escaping from the rat race to the stunning location he now lives and works in he worked as a Graphic Designer. The design for this website was provided to us by our client in Adobe Illustrator format and is not only bespoke but it is a one off:

  • Bespoke XHTML website
  • OS Commerce Shop
  • Shop built into Iframe
  • Include Social Media
  • CushyCMS Content Editor

We have developed a number of websites from Adobe Illustrator and other formats over the years, with a great deal of success, gaining a reputation for pixel perfect websites compared to their original graphic designs. We retain these designs and are always happy to show prospective clients the original graphic design and the completed website, as examples of the quality of our work.

Now OS Commerce is a good ecommerce solution, it is free, and very well supported. However Os Commerce is not intended to go into an Iframe (basically a website within a website). Our client's design required that we reduce the OS Commerce functionality to the bare minimum, only showing products in the Iframe, and bringing the main controls like product selection and the shopping basket into the parent website. This required extensive modifications to OS Commerce not only to change its functionality, but also to match our client's design. We have still not found another example of OS Commerce used in this manner to date.

This was a very successful project for us, the XHTML website was developed first to give our client a new web presence, followed by the OS Commerce shop, which took a little longer due to its complexity. We received yet another fantastic testimonial, and we would like to thank Harry for giving us the opportunity to work on this very interesting and rewarding project.
