Liquorice Pizza

An online destination for audiophiles and music lovers

This one goes all the way up to 11

Liquorice Pizza is a new online record store specialising in rare and collectable vinyl, lovingly curated by self confessed audiophile and DJ Thom Day.

The style of the website draws inspiration from fashion brands in terms of a clean, minimal wrapper and celebrates the album artwork by making it a key feature of the design. Using subtle transitions and animated icons we brought a flat app like UI to life.

Roll the drums

Shopify was chosen as the platform as it’s very simple to use, it has an integrated POS system and there are hundreds of apps which offer valuable functionality at minimal cost.

To let visitors preview tracks before they buy, we built our own HTML5 audio player which works seamlessly across desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The site also features a smart search, ajax cart, blog, wishlist and gift cards system.

The Liquorice Pizza logo was created by the talented graphic artist and illustrator Sam Falla who was also responsible for the iconic pizza box packaging with genre toppings.
