McNaughtan’s Bookshop & Gallery is the oldest second-hand and antiquarian bookshop in Scotland. The shop and gallery have been established since 1957 and took new ownership in 2015. The new owner, Derek Walker, approached us in need of an overhaul of the existing website and to create a brand new e-commerce site in its place. The new website needed to allow users to be able to browse and purchase books directly from the website. The website also needed to feature the latest events and gallery exhibitions happening at the bookshop.
We created a design for the new website that is fresh and modern, mixed with a classic colour scheme and traditional details, seen in the content borders, buttons and title decorations. Users can easily browse for books to purchase with the bespoke search filter we created especially for the website. They can also download catalogues, and find out about the latest events and gallery exhibitions. The website has been optimised to have a high PageSpeed score of 95%, and we built each element of the site to be responsive, so users can browse books on the go on their mobile devices. We also redesigned the McNaughtan’s logo to be used on the new website, social network sites and other promotional material.
