SupaDupa intro

SupaDupa

Your stunning, deliberately simple, online store

About

SupaDupa was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to create boutique-quality, classically crafted online shops at a revolutionary price point. SupaDupa was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced, bland, ready-made shops available today.

As the brainchild of Rumble digital agency, a specialist in boutique e-commerce work, SupaDupa benefits of over a decade building successful e-commerce systems. The SupaDupa aesthetic is classically-inspired, with a fashion forward twist - and every boutique can be customised with its’ very own domain name, logo and banner slideshows to match the brand it represents.

Based in London and founded by three friends in 2010 SupaDupa now powers a growing community of independent creative ranging from artist, fashionistas, jewelery designers and other entrepreneurially minded people with a desire to get their products out there without compromising their design values.

Involvement

Railsware helped SupaDupa develop features aimed at extending online boutique themes. The goal was to allow users go deeper in boutique customization and this was achieved with two levels of customization.

The first one called "basic customization" allowed users to play with theme's color scheme and font setttings. This enabled SupaDupa users to change the look of their shops via simple and easy controls. Every single change (font family, size, color, background etc.) became instantly available in the preview area.

For some more advanced customization, there was an access provided to most of theme's templates and css files which enabled users to change the theme or insert their own code to improve their boutique's performance. Also, in the advanced customization mode users were able to uploaded custom assets and then use them in coding. And on top of that, customization wizard had smart saving algorythm, demo-to-real content switcher and other useful features, all implemented by Railsware.
