Starting point

Finding themselves sharing the same office space, the Big Cheese Making Kit (BCMK) initially approached Starbit to take on the hosting and maintenance of their e-commerce website. Experiencing rapid sales growth, BCMK also needed to streamline their current site to remove glitches and speed up the transaction process. After several months of work to improve the current site, Starbit were commissioned to begin work on a complete overhaul.


Starbit worked collaboratively with Border Crossing Media and BCMK to scope and prioritise user experience (UX) improvements. The UX principles set out in the early stages of the project informed the redesign, which focussed on reducing barriers to transaction completion. It was agreed that the new site should be first and foremost an e-commerce outlet, without losing the homespun brand identity that had originally helped to establish the product line. Several innovative touches were implemented, including a direct access panel on the homepage, where kits are shown according to the kind of cheese they make. This means all primary products can now be added to the basket directly from the homepage. The new site was launched in March 2016, on a fully PCIcompliant hosting platform.
