Note: These themes were design for an E- Business product; a platform to enable and encourage businesses online.


Design challenge:
1. To create an easy to use/ edit and easy to customize themes by a user with average computer skills.
2. A flexible approach to cater any type of content and any level of information.
3. Conceptualize from both point of view; user of design as seller, and interaction of buyer with the design as well.

More importantly every business has its own distinct features but major business types, which are targeted:
Stores,
Services,
NGO,
Group


My role was to create:
Task flow,
Wire frames,
Interaction design,
Design guidelines.

Guidelines I followed:
Horizontal grids: easy to increase or decrease as per the content requirement.
Three types of customization: Basic, Advanced, CSS(considering user with any level of computer skill set and making it more systemic and easy going.)
Basic: fonts, fonts colour, colour, background colour, texture.
Advance: banner, images, product categories, content edit on pages.
CSS: edit code

3.Theme Design for Services:
Businesses providingservices have very different business models than stores. Themes displaying serviceswill be displaying the portfolio, testimonials, rate card/ services andachievements. The users of these designs will be doctors, lawyers, CAs, Tutors,counselors etc. This profile can be made by a group or by an individual.

Themes for serviceswill have major following features:
Raisebills,
Send enquiry,
Create service chart,
Banner,
Send invoice.


4. Theme design for NGO:
Non-profit organizations (NGO) need to communicate what theyare for, what their practices are and what all they have done. The objective ofhaving an online profile of an NGO is self-promotion, get known and ultimatelyget donations. It is similar to some extent with themes for services in terms ofdisplaying a portfolio. Also it has some similarities with the groups as an NGOcan be taken as a group also unless without an aim of getting donations.

NGOs need an online profileto:
Communicatetheir core values,
Communicate their work areas,
and Represent the projects they have done and their ongoing projects,
get donations online.
