Seamless Product Customization for a Luxury Eyewear Curator

Visionist is a curated luxury eyewear platform designed to change the way you see the world—and the way the world sees you. Barrel worked with the Visionist team to launch the brand on Shopify Plus, creating a brand from scratch that captures the experience of shopping for luxury eyewear online. We designed an unparalleled digital shopping experience to connect customers with trained Visionists to get expert style, fit, and prescription recommendations.

A New Face for Visionist

After an in-depth strategy phase, including customer and stakeholder interviews, we created a full brand identity system for Visionist, from the name, logo, messaging, and custom content (illustrations, photography, and iconography). This was a catalyst for the website design project, aimed at raising the bar in how customer shop for eyewear online.

An Opticitian-led Experience with a HIPPA Compliant Lens Flow

We helped Visionist unify the in-person and online experience to connect customers directly with Opticians for guidance and appointments. Their HIPPA compliant custom lens flow seamlessly connects the patient's prescription with their new glasses.

Connecting Customers to the Perfect Glasses

We created a comprehensive product finder to guide customers in finding the perfect pair of glasses from Visionist's extensive range of products. The product finder combines their personal preferences, face shape, and eye requirements to identify the right match.

A Digital Ecosystem for an Expanding Marketplace

To support Visionist's expansion, we created a robust ecosystem of templates and modules to make it easier for their team to create future pages to announce their latest collections and new services.

Brand-Focused Collection Landing Pages

We designed a dedicated collection landing page for the eyewear marketplace to showcase the different brands Visionist sells. This page educates customers about the brand, promotes product discovery within the collection, and connects them with a near by retail location to see the products in-store.
