Tech Stack

Overview

Stone Aisle is transforming from a traditional local imitation jewelry shop into a luxury e-commerce brand. This change is motivated by the desire to use existing manufacturing resources to meet a growing demand that goes beyond local customers, using tools like WhatsApp and direct referrals. The main goal is to establish a strong online presence that ensures a smooth customer experience and efficient backend operations.

My Role

As the Lead UX & Web Designer, I collaborated closely with the CEO, two graphic design interns, one developer, and a performance marketer. I was responsible for designing the Ecommerce website and developing strategies to enhance brand awareness.

Problem

Digital Presence

Initially, the brand had no online footprint, a critical component for reaching a broader audience and enabling e-commerce operations.

Brand Awareness and Trust

Entering the e-commerce sphere as a newcomer posed the challenge of establishing brand recognition and trust among potential customers.
 

Need for a Digital Solution

A comprehensive suite of digital services was essential, including branding, web design and development, and marketing strategies, all while catering to users with limited tech expertise.
