Based in Sydney, New South Wales, Friday's Child Baby Gifts specialise in baby shower gifts, personalised baby gifts and baby hampers packaged in luxury keepsake suitcases.
In January 2018, Lisa from Friday’s Child contacted PDDesign about upgrading their existing Joomla 3.4 website which contained a version of Mijoshop. Mijoshop is based on OpenCart 1.5. Friday’s Child were interested in extending the functionality of their E-Commerce website but were limited by an outdated content management system. After some back and forth discussions about whether to switch over to Shopify or OpenCart, Lisa and her husband Brendon decided on OpenCart 188.8.131.52. Together we decided that the Journal 2 OpenCart Theme would be an excellent choice for their upgrade. This would allow the client to easily update the website in the future as there is continued support from the theme developers. The Friday’s Child website is made for mobile devices using the latest responsive web design techniques.
All the website images/products were supplied by the client during the development of the website. PDDesign design regenerated all the artwork and converted/migrated an existing OpenCart 1.5 to an OpenCart 3.0 MySQL Database. The website was designed around the Journal 11 theme which was constructed with supporting online video walkthroughs for the client. The project would take just over 20 weeks to be fully completed.
