In 1998, Jeff Bezos had a vision for the Internet. At that time he was four years into building Amazon. It was taking off as a humongous online emporium of books and music. In an interview with the Washington Post that year, Bezos made a visionary statement about the web. “If we have 4.5 million customers, we shouldn’t have one store. We should have 4.5 million stores,” he said.

For most users, free themes are the best place to start. When you install a new theme, it doesn’t change the content on your site, only the layout. This means you can download and install a number of different themes to see which theme suits you best. If you feel like you need something more advanced than a free theme, you can always install a paid theme at a later date.
The action-centric perspective is based on an empiricist philosophy and broadly consistent with the agile approach[22] and amethodical development.[23] Substantial empirical evidence supports the veracity of this perspective in describing the actions of real designers.[20] Like the rational model, the action-centric model sees design as informed by research and knowledge. However, research and knowledge are brought into the design process through the judgment and common sense of designers – by designers "thinking on their feet" – more than through the predictable and controlled process stipulated by the rational model.

The person designing is called a designer, which is also a term used for people who work professionally in one of the various design areas usually specifying which area is being dealt with (such as a textile designer, fashion designer, product designer, concept designer, web designer or interior designer). A designer's sequence of activities is called a design process while the scientific study of design is called design science.[1][4][5][6]

"Process design" (in contrast to "design process" mentioned above) refers to the planning of routine steps of a process aside from the expected result. Processes (in general) are treated as a product of design, not the method of design. The term originated with the industrial designing of chemical processes. With the increasing complexities of the information age, consultants and executives have found the term useful to describe the design of business processes as well as manufacturing processes.
Great research and Excellent Idea, I have seen eCommerce websites using a different design and products listing landing page depend on users and location.Google is aware of it too and it's showing the results as per location.

The problem is that these services come at a price – you’ll generally have to pay between $10 and $40 a month for a single site.

One can think about custom wedding gifts the same way. They make bold statements about the future, and often about the day that two people decided to commit to one another and cherish one another for the rest of their lives. Some might be subtle, like engraved champagne flutes, and still others might be huge pieces of wall art that greet every visitor who walks through the front door. And if it's your own wedding, maid of honor gifts can include a personalized dress hangar or wine glasses. And don't forget a gift for the flower girl. She's going to do her best, and a cuddly teddy bear or an embroidered doll will be a gift she'll cherish forever.

In the sensemaking–coevolution–implementation framework, designers alternate between its three titular activities. Sensemaking includes both framing and evaluating moves. Implementation is the process of constructing the design object. Coevolution is "the process where the design agent simultaneously refines its mental picture of the design object based on its mental picture of the context, and vice versa".[11]
The relationship between design and production is one of planning and executing. In theory, the plan should anticipate and compensate for potential problems in the execution process. Design involves problem-solving and creativity. In contrast, production involves a routine or pre-planned process. A design may also be a mere plan that does not include a production or engineering processes although a working knowledge of such processes is usually expected of designers. In some cases, it may be unnecessary or impractical to expect a designer with a broad multidisciplinary knowledge required for such designs to also have a detailed specialized knowledge of how to produce the product.

It is true, however, that it is not customary to pull down all the houses of a town with the single design of rebuilding them differently, and thereby rendering the streets more handsome; but it often happens that a private individual takes down his own with the view of erecting it anew, and that people are even sometimes constrained to this when their houses are in danger of falling from age, or when the foundations are insecure.
Design philosophies are fundamental guiding principles that dictate how a designer approaches his/her practice. Reflections on material culture and environmental concerns (sustainable design) can guide a design philosophy. One example is the First Things First manifesto which was launched within the graphic design community and states "We propose a reversal of priorities in favor of more useful, lasting and democratic forms of communication – a mindshift away from product marketing and toward the exploration and production of a new kind of meaning. The scope of debate is shrinking; it must expand. Consumerism is running uncontested; it must be challenged by other perspectives expressed, in part, through the visual languages and resources of design."[28]

After knowing why we were personalizing, the next question becomes what are we personalizing and for whom? The “for whom” part of this question was our starting place. It’s the best starting point for any personalization campaign. You must define your audience (aka who you’re personalizing for) before you decide on the experience (aka what you’re going to show them).
This is not to say that production never involves problem-solving or creativity, nor that design always involves creativity. Designs are rarely perfect and are sometimes repetitive. The imperfection of a design may task a production position (e.g. production artist, construction worker) with utilizing creativity or problem-solving skills to compensate for what was overlooked in the design process. Likewise, a design may be a simple repetition (copy) of a known preexisting solution, requiring minimal, if any, creativity or problem-solving skills from the designer.

You can easily create three floating boxes side by side. However, when you add something that enlarges the width of each box (e.g. padding or borders), the box will break. The box-sizing property allows us to include the padding and border in the box's total width (and height), making sure that the padding stays inside of the box and that it does not break.


Customized gifts are the perfect antidote to mundane or boring. They immediately state their uniqueness and hint at the uniqueness of the owner. A personalized gift like engraved stepping stones in the garden or a family history pillow each say so much about the person who has them. One likes to be outdoors, to garden, and is proud of her family. The other shows a sense of history, of family permanence, and hints at more to come in the future. Each a unique person with a unique viewpoint, individual to themselves.


A unique gift is something special and heartfelt. Remember that unique is in the eye of the beholder. The unique aspect of a gift stems from the recipient’s personality. Don’t bother with a generic gift this year. Give a gift that stands out as personal and precious for that special someone. Choose gifts for men and women that are sure to impress this year! Looking for unique gifts for her that say "I Love You"? Customizable gifts that have unique messaging will have her falling in love all over again.

To increase lead quality. Our existing homepage was filling the sales funnel with lots of not-so-great leads. Often, people wound up in a conversation with a sales-human who was not sufficiently educated about what Optimizely had to offer. Not a good situation for the lead or the sales-human. We had to redesign the experience so that folks understood our value.

I have recommended it to a number of friends and colleagues. The HUB is brilliant because I can re-use creations with adaptations and the fact that all I need is a web browser is amazing.”
Substantial disagreement exists concerning how designers in many fields, whether amateur or professional, alone or in teams, produce designs. Kees Dorst and Judith Dijkhuis, both designers themselves, argued that "there are many ways of describing design processes" and discussed "two basic and fundamentally different ways",[8] both of which have several names. The prevailing view has been called "the rational model",[9] "technical problem solving"[10] and "the reason-centric perspective".[11] The alternative view has been called "reflection-in-action",[10] "evolutionary design",[6] "co-evolution",[12] and "the action-centric perspective".[11]

To get closer to a global maximum. We had reached a local maximum on our current site. After four years of iteration and conversion optimization, we had achieved the best possible version of the existing design. New A/B tests on the page returned insignificant results. We had to design a radically different site to get closer to the global maximum with higher conversion rates and engagement. In other words, we were climbing a mountain and had reached a small hill, but our goal was to summit the peak.
