Great Design & E-commerce

Elements of the design we did back in 2007 are still in use today. This layout isn't actually what we ended up going live with, but it gives you some idea of where we were going. The finished site even had an e-commerce element, but I don't remember what we were selling - Cd's and mp3's I guess.

The Champagne Academy had a previous site built many years ago using a do-it-yourself system which in turn had generated pages using Flash - a very unsatisfactory situation!
