You are browsing a new version of our webshop
At MENDO we consider our webshop to be an organic creature, that needs continuous nurturing and nourishing. The version you are currently browsing was launched just recently. It’s has been overhauled and updated intensively. And yet, if we – MENDO and Build in Amsterdam – did our jobs well, 99% our work will go unnoticed. You will enjoy a better browsing experience and shopping convenience, but you won’t be able to tell why. There are a few adjustments that are visible and worth highlighting, though.
A warm(er) welcome
We’ve updated the main header on our homepage. It has now become a carousel with multiple products. You can either click / drag to browse the slides or sit back and see what’s coming.
More to see
We wanted our homepage to inspire more. In order to do so we added two horizontal bars where we can display books. These bars scroll automatically or you can click and drag to browse the products. These bars can be found on the top and the bottom of the homepage.
Small detail: we turned the black line into a page scroll indicator.
Our search tool was quite beautiful, but there was room for improvement in terms of functionality. Instead of an overlay, the search tool is a page now, which enables you to go back and forward between search results and products. Additionally, we looked at the search results and they have improved too. We believe we’ve found a nice balance between relevance and inspiration.
Even after two years, we believe the search result counter is one of the most beautiful element of our webshop.
Are you a reader / follower of our journal? We post interviews, photographer’s profiles and shelf sessions on a regular basis. In order to make the journal more readable and relevant, sub headlines and dates have been added. You will find these on the homepage, journal overview page and the journals themselves. The page scroll indicator is a helpful addition to these pages.
Not new, but worth mentioning
Did you ever notice the sentence ‘How big is this book’ on one of our product detail pages? We suggest you click on it, because it answers the question adequately. This function compares the book with items of which you know how big they are. Like an egg, a power plug and other – tasteful and not so tasteful – utensils.
If you thought digital gift cards are dull, give ours a spin. Adding numbers is a feast, and you can schedule it to have it delivered digital on a special day. Sweet!
Do you encounter things that don’t work as they should, or do you believe we can improve? We’d love to hear from you. Send your feedback to [email protected]
