“Gorilla is at the forefront of online retail solutions with their unique mix of user experience and design expertise. They understood our challenges and partnered with our internal back-end development team seamlessly,” said Ted Fay, Senior Director of Digital Marketing for DirectBuy.
Gorilla helped us reconnect with members and reimage ecommerce. The award-winning digital agency assisted in organizing the site’s information architecture and simplifying all aspects of shopping through design, front-end development and user experience.
“Finding original ways to present DirectBuy’s extensive product catalog and make the shopping process as easy as possible within a touch-first paradigm made for a challenging and rewarding project,” said Adam Huse, Senior Interaction Designer at Gorilla Group. “Across every customer interaction, we looked for ways to make the e-commerce experience intuitive, present customers with the right content at the right time, and deepen trust with the DirectBuy brand. The new site will certainly play an important role in the brand's long-term success.”
