Simplicity Is The Ultimate Sophistication

We’ve spent countless days, weeks, months and caffeinated nights to design an online wallpaper shop excelling in usability. We thought the wallpapers should speak for themselves. So we followed a minimalist approach. But like good old Steve Jobs always said: ‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication‘. Well, point taken Steve. It indeed takes a lot of efforts. We dived into the world of website design. Color psychology. Heat maps. Analytics. Usability. And A/B testing. To create the best online wallpaper shop we could make. We hope you enjoy the result. Life is too short for bad webdesign.
