Since a few weeks, quasi since the beginning of the lock-down due to the virus epedemie, I have been working a lot on the production of online catalogues. Product photos of every sort of products: glasses, tools, boat accessories, ceramics and kitchen accessories and a spare parts catalogue.
Very helpful is that I can provide a guest apartment for the designer in my studio which is fully networked. This enables the designer to work quickly on uploads directly on site to the company website while I create the photo required for the product. This allows very effective work without too much correspondence. All photos are usually photographed on a light grey background so that if necessary another background colour can be easily adjusted.
These three conditions must be considered in any case when designing an online catalogue:
Production tactics need to be adjusted to react when trade promotes short-term sales to compensate for losses. reopened stores promote short-term sales.
It is worth adjusting to tighter budgets because the coming economic crisis is inevitable. Your online catalogue should therefore also reflect changing demand and realistic pricing.
And finally, you need to take advantage of these new price/performance expectations through targeted notifications via online news and "social media" to attract these new cost-conscious customers so that they can then integrate them into your current offering in the long term.
