    Lightbulb My e-commerce concpet store. It needs to be better than good.

    Hallo everyone,

    I'm not a professional web designer, I'm a shoemaker. Long story - short, I had to do the design by myself xD.

    Now, to better understand my project, I'll provide You with some basic info.
    The brands I'm supposed to sell/promote in this store are the 30 best fashion designers in Croatia.
    The shop itself should be on a scale from one to ten (where one is selling and ten promoting), four. I hope You'll understand what I mean ...
    This is the case due the relatively high prices, and the issues coming with selling expensive clothing via the web (You can't try it, feel it, etc...).

    Here is the link to the gallery, where I've uploaded the finished pages of the shop. At least I think they're done.

    I'll be thankful for any good advice, constructive critic or suggestion.

    P.S. Sorry if I've violated forum rules or the English grammar.

    Thank you in advance, Macimilian.

    Hi Macimilian,

    I think the theme looks good in general. The dark appearance elevates the status of the brands that you are selling, and the prominent display of lifestyle imagery sets a good tone of the types of settings your products are good for.

    Perhaps you can consider adding an SSL icon somewhere on the site, as that would reinforce buyer confidence for any ecommerce site. This can be added next to the Paypal and WS Pay icons.

    There is also a typo in the Giftcards sections, where you typed "greeting carts" instead of "greeting cards"

    Hope this helps!

    I have listed your 'title and description' along with a couple examples of title and
    description from a couple similar sites. Reason: The first thing someone sees is your
    'title and description' when searching the internet. What words would they use to find your
    site ? use those words in your title and description.
    -
    Google allows 66 characters (including spaces) in the title
    Google allows 150 characters (including spaces) in the description
    they should describe your web page.
    -
    To check the webpage for title and description - check source code (for win 7 - top toolbar - Tools > Web Developer > Page Source)
    Older windows use View > Page Source to obtain webpage source code (title and description)

    Thank you for your suggestions.

    @CozyOrange
    I will add the SSL icon as soon as I know which one we're goin' to use.

    @navyfalcon
    I'm not familiar with SEO optimization, so I have to trust my developer. And maybe, later on, if the shop works out fine, hire a SEO specialist.

    I'd make the right border a bit different
    http://www.vectorialpx.net/diverse/border-example.jpg

    Also I don't like the alignment for "Gift cards", "News", "Free returns"

    I'd align everything to the left and add a border like "the example"
    OR
    Align the News to center.

    Also, in the footer, titles should be aligned to the left.
    I personally don't like the idea of "different title alignment"

    It looks great, as colors, pictures and concept. Those small issues are also a matter of taste and vision.

    Good luck!
