Wigzo Review: Browser/Desktop Notifications for Ecommerce

Think about all of the notifications you receive on a weekly basis.

Much like its product, GOBAG’s website design centres around efficiency with a particular focus on finer details to enable seamless navigation with a thematic thread of movement throughout.

Diagrammatic animations pack and unpack, providing simple instructions as you scroll. They are joined by other subtle pockets of motion, creating an apt sense of momentum and discovery while bringing the key features of the travel pack to the foreground.
