Creating a directory website for the Renaissance Trading House
Renaissance Company is one of the largest distributors of alcohol in Russia. This brand already had huge visibility, but no a structured directory website. The client intended to attract an additional audience using modern marketing tools. That’s where we came in.
The client had many wishes for the design, style and structure. This is where the idea of elegant brevity was implemented, which we prefer to use in the development of directory websites. The result is not ostentatious, but more status and information oriented. We received all the photo and video content from the client. The work was delivered on time and the client was satisfied.
Creating a directory website for the furniture company MebeliApp
It was a very interesting project because there was a collaborative effort between our designers and the client’s designers. It’s worth noting that this company has creative people on the team who already had the finished product in their imagination. Given the fruitful results of the cooperation, we understood that we could both find common ground with the client and compromise.
On this website, we have implemented an engaging portfolio page, full of high-quality client photographed content. The text was created by our copywriters. We also integrated a company news page, where we planned to publish material on a regular basis. With our CMS it’s not difficult at all, as it was designed to be intuitive and easy-to-use. The work was completed 3 days before the deadline and the client accepted it without any changes.

Important components of the catalog site
In order for a directory website not only to represent your products, but also to be able to sell them, you need to create more than just flawless functionality. We also pay attention to such aspects as design, interface and usability.
All products need to be divided into categories. In each category there are product cards that contain information about the main characteristics, availability to order, color options, equipment, and so on. The client rejected the idea of implementing filters.
There should be no unnecessary “noise” on product pages. This is why we refuse from screaming banners and bulky texts. All information about the company and its products is presented in a structured, accessible and easy-to-read way.
Since this is a directory website, we do not implement the possibility of buying online. Sales are made by direct call or by ordering a callback. That's why we put the ”Call me” form and sales phone numbers in visible places. We also put all the ways of contacting the company on a separate page.
What should be in a directory website?
Before you start creating a directory website, you need to think in detail about its structure. Since it differs from the online store, it does not need functions such as a shopping cart or a detailed product card, for example. This makes it both easier and, at the same time, more complicated. But we like to put effort into creating a project! For a directory website, we defined the main pages as follows:
How to contact us.
The pages listed represent the basic functionality. We can expand it at the request of the client and based on the peculiarities of a particular company.
