Lekha is a children’s book publisher and creative writing school in San Jose, California.
To coincide with Lekha’s franchising its programs, the original site content is split into a corporate/publishing site and a writing center site.
Goals for the new Lekha Ink website included expanding the online store. In the new site, a collection of product pages with buy buttons becomes an full-fledged online store with grid display, categories for sorting goods, a shopping cart, and user accounts.
In the first stage of this project, the design of the publishing and writing school sites matched to keep brand continuity.
As the new sites were adopted and the publishing side continued to develop, Lekha Ink needed its own look and feel.
While the writing school continued with the initial design, the second design for the publishing site is clean, open, and brings the books to center stage.
Site management began with Lekha’s previous HTML/PHP site and continued through two redesigns and incremental changes.
