The Summer’s Hottest Online Catalogs

Everyone loves the summer season! For fashion, retailers, designers, and makers, the summer season provides the perfect backdrop to showcase their products, fashion, and wares. Summer catalogs and lookbooks are known for bright colors, fun themes, and often beautiful outdoor settings whether at the beach, in the mountains, or poolside. 

Creating a beautiful and effective online catalog is a large project and undertaking. From ensuring you have all of the products or fashion samples available to coordinating the photoshoot, including potential travel and location styling, the process can become extensive. After you have accomplished these steps, you will then move into the layout process and various rounds of review until you have the final catalog. At this point you don’t want to stop with just a print-only or PDF formatted catalog - today we live in a digital-first world and the best catalogs are also available as interactive online content that makes it easy for readers to scroll, flip, and shop with just a few clicks.
