Aestr, an emerging beauty brand, wanted to carve out a unique space in the competitive online beauty industry. They envisioned a platform that went beyond traditional sales, instead, building a community around beauty innovation, self-care, and inclusivity. To bring this vision to life, they required a distinct brand identity and an online store that offered more than just transactions — an experience. Shopify, known for its customizable setup and reliable e-commerce capabilities, was chosen as the foundation for Aestr’s online presence.
Following its launch, Aestr’s Shopify store swiftly generated buzz in the online beauty community. The unique brand identity drew widespread attention, contributing to a 70% increase in site traffic within the first three months. User engagement metrics indicated that the storytelling approach to UI/UX was highly effective, with visitors spending, on average, 50% more time on the site than industry benchmarks.

The UI/UX design focused on storytelling, weaving brand values, and product narratives throughout the user journey. High-quality visuals, compelling product descriptions, and an intuitive layout ensured a seamless and immersive shopping experience.
