Founded on Melbourne’s bustling Chapel Street in 1972, by Australian designer Adele Palmer, JAG established its place in the Australian fashion landscape by fast becoming a staple brand with its innovative design in stylish casual wear.

For decades JAG decorated the butts of Aussies + Americans alike, in their signature JAG jeans featuring the triangle logo and easy styling pieces worn back with denim. Their founding DNA; jeans and sportswear was processed, stonewashed, overdyed, relaxed and slightly recycled in its hey day, as it is today.

Overdose. was selected by APG & Co. to bring their digital vision to life. With a focus on delivering a truly customer-obsessed experience, our team leveraged cutting-edge technology to design and build a custom website unlike any other. Utilizing headless architecture and a combination of commercetools Frontend and commercetools, we created a one-of-a-kind site that offered a seamless and effortless user experience. This innovative approach empowered the APG & Co. team to work faster and more efficiently, freeing them from the constraints of traditional website architecture. The result was a truly unique and functional website that perfectly reflected APG & Co.'s values of creativity, resilience, and quality customer experience.

UX/UI

For the JAG project, Overdose and JAG decided to implement a headless approach in order to manage multiple websites efficiently. The websites were delivered using commercetools Frontend, which ensured a consistent user experience while maintaining the unique look and feel of each website. The designs and user flows were optimized to showcase JAG’s high-quality garments and their versatility, appealing to both men and women.

During the design phase with JAG, the team faced challenges in accurately conveying the brand’s information online, such as the origin of the fabrics and the versatility of the garments. Solutions were implemented on the product page, including highlighting the country of origin and providing a detailed block on the design and make of the garment.

To communicate that JAG caters to both men and women, the team split the home page hero banner into two sections and used a mix of model shots and category blocks featuring both genders throughout the site. The team’s goal was to convey the versatility of JAG’s garments and provide users with fresh ideas on how to style the pieces from day to night. The project was completed with a thorough testing process, ensuring the optimal performance of the website.
