Abstract [en]

The report examines how an online store for custom designed bottle labels can be developed as a web application, and aims to contribute to the existing research on web design. The development is based on the vision” to provide custom labels through an online store which puts the icing on the cake for your special occasion”, with persons in the age 25-40 who are planning a wedding or another large event as target group. The technical methods which can be used are presented in the report and what impact they had on the competitive aspects of the online store. Design strategies for building user trust are discussed among others, as essential parts of e-commerce according to the presented theory. Furthermore, the report presents more concrete technical methods for increasing the competitiveness such as faster loading times and search engine optimization. Especially loading times plays a central role for the success of a web application according to the related theory. The methods which has been used and why, considering the collected theory, are presented in the report. The conclusions of the report states that an online store successfully can be developed using an agile methodology such as Scrum and that it can take benefits from being implemented as a single page application. Developing a design tool for custom bottle labels proved to be a difficult balancing act between customization and simplicity. 

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport undersöker hur en e-butik för försäljning av egendesignade flasketiketter kan utvecklas som webbapplikation, och syftar till att bidra till den existerande forskningen kring webbutveckling. Utvecklandet utgår från visionen "att genom en e-butik tillhandahålla personliga etiketter som sätter guldkant på ditt evenemang", med personer i 25-40 årsåldern som planerar bröllop eller någon annan större fest som målgrupp. I rapporten presenteras de tekniska metoder som kan användas, och vad de har för påverkan på de konkurrensmässiga aspekterna av e-butiken. Bland annat behandlas designstrategier för att skapa förtroende hos användaren, en essentiell del i e-handel enligt den teori som presenteras i rapporten. Vidare presenteras även mer konkreta tekniska aspekter för att utöka konkurrenskraften såsom snabbare laddningstider och sökmotoroptimering. Framförallt spelar laddningstider en central roll för webbapplikationers framgång enligt den framtagna teorin. De metoder som valts utifrån den framtagna teorin och varför presenteras sedan i rapporten. Slutsatserna blir att en e-butik med fördel kan vara en single-page applikation och utvecklas agilt enligt Scrum. Att utveckla ett designverktyg för personliga flasketiketter visade sig vara en svår balansgång mellan valfrihet och enkelhet.
