"Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration."

Jennifer came to us looking to add new features to their existing site keeping a tight budget and an even tighter deadline. They wanted to keep their current design (by Holdren Design) but add a fully-featured shopping cart that would perform well on any OS in any browser. Easy, right? We built a custom shopping cart in PHP / MySQL as Brilliant Retail for ExpressionEngine 2 did not exist yet. It’s always a fun challenge building building complex features from scratch - time consuming but challenging. In the end, her new site was a success and all her e-mails blasts to her 1,000s of customers could now return an immediate purchase instead of a sticky-note that read, “go to kinks and quirks for ....”.
