“How to tell the story when it comes to Paro’s online proposition?”, was the main question when Nakatori started working with Paro on Parostore.com. A design, appealing to the target audience is obvious, but how can you visually support the story about sustainable brands and the manufacturing process? With ‘Good Design Codes’ the brilliant team at Paro used to divide brands and studios into 9 sustainable categories! From there, the Paro design team worked closely with the development team at Nakatori, to build the online experience with the categories incorporated.
”It’s hard to find sustainable brands, and especially to gain knowledge about them, so we bring that together at Parostore.com. If we want customers to know the manufacturing process, we have to provide them with that information. It is also nice for makers if consumers know how much effort and love they put into the products.Zoe Patienceco-founder Paro
