THE ART MART
E-Commerce Site Re-Design
The Art Mart is a local, eclectic art supply store in the Arts District in downtown Portland. The store primarily caters to the Art School it shares the block with, and the many independent studios in the area. Since the pandemic, they have had an increase in their e-commerce activity. The original site was outdated, challenging to navigate, and not user-friendly. We were brought on to establish the user need and made a more functional and personalized online shopping experience.
