Meet Studiogusto

As a creative agency, Studiogusto built solid expertise in the luxury sector Made in Italy. They offer services to premium brands targeting a worldwide market. Studiogusto’s projects have won numerous international awards. The agency was included in the Top 10 worldwide bests of the “2020 Agency Of The Year” award by CSS Design Awards.

 Studiogusto focuses on the fast evolution in the field of digital and new media channels. In the global market and communication scene, we are recognized as a boutique agency focused on excellence. Daniele Milana, digital project manager at Studiogusto

The agency does it all: art direction, content creation, brand building, web and development services, digital strategy, and social media management, as well as photo, video, and motion.

Studiogusto worked with lots of renowned brands

As a part of their web services, they create online stores for luxury brands—some of which were created with the help of Ecwid by Lightspeed.

Ecommerce Solutions for Luxury Brands

Since Studiogusto works primarily with premium brands, they focus on high-performance, design-oriented, and experiential projects for their clients.

Creating a digital presence usually starts with a website, which often means adding an online store to it. The agency needed a simple but highly customizable ecommerce solution that could be used for a wide variety of product niches. That’s where Ecwid by Lightspeed came in handy.

 We first used Ecwid by Lightspeed for our projects a couple of years ago. We loved its simple logic and the clear, easy-to-use CMS. Daniele Milana, digital project manager at Studiogusto

Studiogusto used Ecwid by Lightspeed to add online stores to the websites they built with WordPress, ReactJS, NextJS, and NetlifyCMS. Since Ecwid stores seamlessly integrate with any website and mimic the website design, the process was straightforward.

Here are a couple of examples of online stores Studiogusto created with the help of Ecwid by Lightspeed:

An online store for Rometti, a luxury ceramic brand that creates eclectic artworks merging cultural symbolism, functionality, and design.

An online store for Interni, an international company specializing in designer furniture, interior design, and project management.

The Tools Studiogusto Recommends

We asked Studiogusto which Ecwid by Lightspeed tools they could recommend to other agencies or business owners. Here are some of their recommendations:

Product Filters for Easier Search in a Store

If you run a multi-brand store with a diverse inventory, you need product filters to provide an excellent shopping experience. Filters help customers find what they need faster, increasing the likelihood they’ll buy your products.

If you check out the Rometti website, you might notice that you can filter products in the online store by prices and designers. Ecwid’s product filters can do even more than that! They allow customers to refine their search by categories, availability, special offers, brands, colors, sizes, and more.

Store visitors can use product filters in category pages as well as on the search page. As for the Rometti website, product filters are enabled on the Shop page.

With Ecwid by Lightspeed, providing a convenient shopping experience is available to any business. Make sure to enable product filters to let customer shop in your store with ease.

Customizing an Online Store with Ecwid’s API

Since Studiogusto creates complex websites with out-of-the-box design, they prefer to work with Ecwid’s API Platform to add a customized online store to a website. They used it for both the Rometti and Interni websites.

Apart from exquisite storefront design changes, Ecwid’s API Platform allows you to add various extra features to your online store, such as integrations with third-party services (shipping companies or payment gateways), advanced sales reports, swift data migration when moving from a store on another platform, and more.

Working with Ecwid’s API Platform requires programming skills. If you have them, then go for it! If not, that’s not a problem at all—our Customization team will be happy to help you. Just submit your request, and we’ll provide you with the best solution for your business. By the way, Ecwid clients with the annual Business and Unlimited plans get 2 and 12 hours of free customization, respectively.

Share Your Story

Studiogusto plans to continue to use Ecwid by Lightspeed for projects that need a simple but customizable ecommerce solution. You, too, can tweak your online store as you like—be it with built-in tools, Ecwid’s API Platform, or our in-house customization services.

Ecommerce that has your back

So simple to use – even my most technophobic clients can manage. Easy to install, quick to set up. Light years ahead of other shop plugins.
I’m so impressed I’ve recommended it to my website clients and am now using it for my own store along with four others for which I webmaster. Beautiful coding, excellent top-notch support, great documentation, fantastic how-to videos. Thank you so much Ecwid, you rock!
I’ve used Ecwid and I love the platform itself. Everything is so simplified it’s insane. I love how you have different options to choose shipping carriers, to be able to put in so many different variants. It’s a pretty open e-commerce gateway.
Easy to use, affordable (and a free option if starting off). Looks professional, many templates to select from. The App is my favorite feature as I can manage my store right from my phone. Highly recommended 👌👍
I like that Ecwid was easy to start and to use. Even for a person like me, without any technical background. Very well written help articles. And the support team is the best for my opinion.
For everything it has to offer, ECWID is incredibly easy to set up. Highly recommend! I did a lot of research and tried about 3 other competitors. Just try ECWID and you'll be online in no time.
