New Look for the Online Store

Hi everyone! November has come and gone already! I know that most of my American friends are getting ready for Turkey dinner tomorrow (lucky you) AND getting days off (lucky you). ย Lately it seems like time has gotten the better of me – no days off, no weekends, just work, work, work. But I’m happy to say that I’ve polished off Sky Pirates Issue 4 and am putting the finishing touches on a really special comic project that I hope to be able to share with you soon. No, it isn’t Tanpopo 3 – that has had to take a backseat to my current work, but I’ve finished the script and will start drawing it in a couple of weeks.

Another project that has been keeping me busy this month has been the redesign of the online store. I didn’t do it alone, I admit! But if anyone is interested in redesigning their store, or their site, I would highly recommend Brandxhype. So I hope everyone likes the new look! We were aiming for an easier to navigate, more colorful, and all around better experience for anyone visiting the store. We’ve even updated some of the product images.

But wait, that’s not all. I wouldn’t be on the blog if it were only about my pretty new store! I’ve been dropping hints and pasting some drawings of the NEW winter clothing that will soon be available. I’m like a jumping jellybean right now!! I can’t wait to see the finished products. ย But we don’t have to wait THAT much longer. Only one more week and all the hoodies, shirts, dresses, tops, scarves and even embroidered tuques will be online. ย Just in the nick of time for Christmas shipping, too!

For my Vancouverites, this year, on December 11th at El Kartel we’re going to have a party to launch the clothing! No snowstorm stopped you last year, so this year will be even bigger and better!!!

Go take a look at the online store, if you haven’t seen it already, and feel free to tell me what you think. And if you’re already thinking beyond the “big” Christmas presents, check out the Featured section of the store for brand spanking new, spot gloss covered, French production 2010 pocket agendas! Oh yeah!!!

I’ll be back with more next week, including the official announcement for the clothing, and for the big party .

But for now, I’d like to share some Thanksgiving cheer (not so much for me because I get no Turkey ๐Ÿ˜‰ …) and say THANK ย YOU for all the support, encouragement and feedback you give me constantly. ย To show you how much it means to me, I’m going to give away a mini prize package containing one of the diaries and some other goodies to the 5th person who writes to me directly to this blog post on my website! ย Tell me what you think of the store design, the products, and what you’d like to see in the future.

Ciao Ciao everyone ^_^

  6. Hello Ryan! You’re lucky nr. 5! Can you email cderricostore@gmail.com so that we can get you your package? You can also choose which agenda you prefer!

    Thanks for the wonderful comments. Christmas will be so much fun this year!

  7. Hi Camilla!
    I hope it’s okay that I still comment even though the contest is over!

    I wanted to tell you that I really like the new design! It’s really easy on the eyes (LOVE the background! <3 ), easy to navigate, and I appreciate how the photos are detailed, especially with the enlargements.

    If there were one thing I would add/change to the site, it would to maybe have some sort of sizing chart for the clothing. For me, the size tends to vary with different brands and styles, and if you have any overseas customers, it might help them out a bit as well so they order the correct size.

    For the new products, I swooned over the idea of embroidered items, hoodies, and scarves. I can't wait to see them!

    In the future, I'd love to see more prints (I'm so sad I missed out on buying my favorite print, Bird's Nest!! ; o ; ), and bags would be lovely!!

    Keep up the great work! I look forward to seeing the new items and more of your work!! <3 Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and that you'll enjoy the holiday season ^_^

    1. Hi Teena Marie,
      Thanks very much for the comments – they are always welcome! The sizing chart is a good idea and we’ll look into it. It isn’t always easy to translate sizes well, especially for overseas. What we are going to do for the new clothing is put up some real photos once we have the clothing in-hand. That also helps more than photoshop mock-ups!

      And … did you say Birdnest?! We JUST put that back online. It was a fan favorite and since we do what our fans tell us ๐Ÿ˜‰ there it is!

      Thanks again and take care,
      Camilla
