Long story short

The Publishing House of the University of Lower Silesia is neither a world famous publisher nor a major bookstore. But for sure they are ambitious and very open to the possibilities that e-publishing presents. A standard bookstore with shelves full of old-fashioned books? Not with DSW!

Together with the advertising agency Blue Papaya we have designed and implemented a reader-friendly online ebook store. The agency took care of the user interface design and we took care of the technical side and user experience. Preview the content in a convenient, Amazon-like way, place an order in a few clicks, pay for it online and have it delivered to your email in seconds, specially prepared for you and signed with a digital watermark.

More than you expect from a standard bookstore!
