“China’s Biggest Mobile Payment Solutions Are Taking Root In U.S. and Europe”
FORBES reported* in August 2017:

…e-commerce in China is no longer just about how great brands break into the Chinese market. It’s also about an important slice of China’s economy coming to you.”

In China, the traditional wallet has been replaced by an electronic wallet on a smartphone. It’s common to make all of your payments for daily needs through that smartphone, using one of two main electronic payment providers: WeChat Pay or Alipay. WeChat Pay is part of the WeChat messaging family, owned by Tencent, and Alipay is affiliated with Alibaba.”

China is today the most cash-free of any of the world’s major economies – and that trend will continue… Now, merchants and brands around the world have a cost-effective way to start testing their appeal to Chinese consumers. No new equipment or capital expenditure necessary, just allow the consumer to scan your QR code. Alipay has already signed global agreements with Marriott and Uber. WeChat Pay has also signed a Las Vegas deal with Caesars.”

Cutting edge Brazilian swimwear

XCLUZV is an existing Brazilian swimwear brand. When entering the U.S. market, it called for a new brand image to suit the market. XCLUZV’s holding company happens to be an international IT consultancy, so it is no surprise that technology is in XCLUZV’s DNA.

With the right combination of creative design, web technology, visual branding, and online marketing experience, GRIDNYC developed XCLUZV’s new website and online store. One of the requirements was to utilize HTML5 video and other web tech to deliver lively visuals without relying on Flash animation. The site went live under in August 2012.

Chinese antique furniture site

Hong Lantern is an online outlet for Chinese “antique style” furniture. This eCommerce site was contracted to an IT firm. GRIDNYC was retained by the IT firm to design the landing page and general look and feel of the site.

Our design result was well liked by the end client. A unique characteristic is the red lantern theme, which connects strongly with the brand (“Hong” is “red” in Chinese). The visual motif is a harmonious scene at the royal court; it elevates the product/brand position a notch higher.
