Consultancy and web shop design

Mono Industries was asked to design a web shop for Icelandic band Sigur Rós by their management company.

A simple and elegant design solution was required to work alongside the band’s evocative visuals. Great attention to detail was given to the layout and typography within the shop as it was felt that the usual online shopping experience would not be appropriate in this instance.

The shop was built by e-commerce merchandise experts Sandbag.

What the client said

Most internet shops are very uninspiring places and I wanted the Sigur Rós shop to be the opposite.

I knew that Mono Industries would design something elegant and in keeping with the aesthetic of the band and that’s exactly what they did.

They were patient, full of helpful suggestions about accessibility and navigation and were great to work with.
