Wordpress Design PluginCustom Wallpaper
What We Did:
As a part of our Color&Chroma (which as later rebranded as Custom Wallpaper) website design project, we were asked to create an intuitive custom WordPress design plugin that would allow customers the ability to perform and choose a variety of options while they created and purchased wallpaper online.
The client wanted customers to be able to choose wallpaper patterns (or images), change the pattern sizes, adjust color palettes, pick wallpaper types, installation types, textures, and more—plus the client wanted them to be able to do all of this in real-time (without the need to talk to a salesperson). We were also asked to make the process dead-simple, with as few steps as possible for the website visitor.
This was a big project, with a short timeline, but we were definitely excited and up to the task!
This plugin integrated with both BigStock and PatternDesigns.com API allowing customer access to a giant creative library of imagery and design assets.
Customers were guided through a simple, step-by-step process, allowing them to update patter sizes, color choices, square footage, paper type, textures, and much more.
A dynamic pricing system was developed to change prices on the fly and show up-to-date changes as the the client configured their custom wallpaper products.
The Nitty Gritty:
We built a custom direct-to-print design tool plugin for CustomWallpaper with several features:
- Integration with Pattern Design‘s API
- Integration with Big Stock’s API
- A simple drag interface for change pattern scale
- A color picker for changing the default pattern colors
- Width and height selectors for wallpaper coverage
- A material selector
- Image upload capabilities
- We tied everything into the WooCommerce shopping platform
