Amos Lighting +Home is a family business, our values all stem from this as we aim to offer excellent service backed up with expert knowledge.
Amos Lighting was a challenging project as the site came to us 60% complete!
I was the sole developer on this project and inherited the existing site (built using WordPress and an in-house theme). The main challenge of a project of this nature is working with the code of an existing agency. It was my job to finish and improve the site, get it ready for launch and to provide hosting.
Employed By: AB Multimedia Ltd.
Sector: Ecommerce / Retail
The site was built using WordPress and WooCommerce and was designed to enable AMOS Lighting to promote their stores, products and for the first time in their history, sell online.
I had to decipher the work of the previous agency, remove any proprietary code and re-build certain functionality using our own in-house techniques. I also had to integrate payment gateways into WooCommerce and make custom modifications to the shopping cart, postage and packaging calculator and other aspects of the checkout process.
After the site launched I was involved in a homepage re-design and accompanying templates to help further promote the online store and drive more traffic to the website. The new homepage used jQuery and CSS transitions to showcase the clients products in a more visually exciting way.
This was a challenging project and it’s always difficult working with someone else’s code! I was able to tackle the project efficiently and achieve the desired results. It’s always fun working with online shops, E-Commerce platforms and payment gateways and I enjoy building visually appealing shop fronts that increase traffic and sales.
It’s always nice being able to represent a clients products and help share their passion online and I think I succeeded in helping AMOS on the road to online sales.
