Providence, RI. (PRWEB) January 24, 2007
Ploom (http://www.ploom.com) has designed a stunning new website for one of the Asia Pacific region's most famous fashion brands -- international fashion watch brand Giordano Timewear. The beautiful new site can be viewed at http://www.giordanotimewear.com and provides a refined and stylish showcase for distributors of Giordano's internationally acclaimed line of urban timepieces.
As designed by Ploom, Giordano Timewear's new site reflects the clean lines and dramatic contrasts so famous of the brand, and is also simple and easy for users to navigate. Through a beautiful series of seamlessly linked Flash pages, the sleek elegance of the Hong Kong-based Giordano brand has been brought online in a brand-new and sophisticated way.
"Designing the new Giordano Timewear distributor site allowed us to translate the aesthetics of one of the world's best-known timewear brands into a beautiful and modern online space that was also easy for distributors to navigate," comments Ploom founder Haig Bedrossian. "The new site provides a fitting backdrop for Giordano's fashion timewear pieces, and showcases the modern sparkle and elegance of its products."
Working under client Vishal Tolani, Director Solar Time Ltd., the Ploom team included Haig Bedrossian as Creative Director, Jesse Lynch as Designer, and Andrew Chernosky as Flash Developer, using such tools as Illustrator CS2, Photoshop CS2, and Flash. The new site by Ploom provides a perfect virtual setting for the Giordano Timewear pieces, as rich earth tones evoke a warm feel, while the dramatic images and deep contrasts emphasize the brand's clean, modern design aesthetic. This approach also ensures that the award-winning Giordano timepieces are always the primary focus, as Men's and Women's watches, in a superb selection of brands and styles, shine against the site's clean lines and backgrounds.
"One important goal for us here was to bring Giordano's elegant aesthetics from the consumer level and into the new site for distributors, extending and reinforcing their brand into new channels," adds Bedrossian. "Giordano distributors expect high quality -- whether from a watch, or a web experience. They want to see each timepiece in clean, clear detail, to understand its specs, view its SKU, and to be able to easily order a batch of watches. The new site does this with ease while providing a fitting showcase for Giordano's gorgeous watches."
The new site not only showcases an impressive selection of timewear products, but also provides an arena for Giordano Timewear to provide agent information worldwide to distributors, to promote recent news, and to enable sellers to contact the company at its Hong Kong headquarters, if needed. In addition, the new site also provides a secure, password-protected section where distributors can access a special area in which to download promotional materials, posters, images, and other valuable marketing materials in support of the Giordano brand.
