Brand Facelifts by Lizzy Schubert

St. Louis, Missouri – Friday October 7, 2016 – Digital Products International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of consumer electronics, refreshed their online look for a better shopping experience on both desktops and mobile devices.

While the brands themselves haven’t changed, some have become roommates under one URL. Within GPX, customers can now find three other brands: WeatherX (weatherband radios), SkyRider (drones) and Gran Prix (RC cars). Likewise, iLive Electronics hosts iLive Platinum (enhanced audio), while Zeki Tablets’ remain the only brand under the Zeki URL.

But the facelift wasn’t purely aesthetics. The minimalistic mod design allows shoppers to better experience the product before purchasing with large lifestyle and bigger product images for zooming in on the details. Additionally, the navigation menus have been streamlined to fit in with the minimal theme, while making browsing a simple and enjoyable activity without the guesswork.

Best of all is the new “Discounts and Promos” mailing list that keeps customers up to date on the latest sales and special offers. With a guarantee of no more than one email per month (No spamming here!), you won’t want to miss signing up with DPI’s various brands.
