I was fortunate enough to help build a global digital commerce solution for Tiffany & Co. as a Design Engineer at Oven Digital. Long before their suburban brick-and-mortar strategy put a retail outlet in every upscale mall in America, Tiffany & Co.’s web presence provided the only way for a huge customer base to learn about and purchase its jewelry.
The project was enormously successful from day one. As a result, its aesthetic qualities and content strategy have remained unchanged. It was the first enterprise website to combine a minimalist UI with large, top-line photography. And thanks to its photography, it was a pioneer in email-based spread-the-word marketing. Tiffany.com has been the benchmark throughout my career for superior digital content, content strategy, and user experience.
