Alpha Industries is the premier manufacturer and online retailer of authentic military apparel. They have been a part of American history, having worked with both the United States Department of Defense and NASA. Simply put, if you want a bomber or flight jacket that's both authentic and fashionable – start with Alpha Industries.
Alpha Industries came to us to help communicate this unique history as well as their expertise in developing high performance outwear and apparel. We worked with Alpha Industries to clarify their brand messaging and to build an online shopping user experience that sells.

We worked in coordination with the Alpha Industries team and their ecommerce vendor ShopVisible. Our team produced a range of design concepts using their existing catalog materials and breadth of historic photography. We also worked with ShopVisible to build custom treatments for interface elements throughout the commerce storefront – including navigational details that use their high-viz yellow, dropdown navigation treatments, custom Add to Cart states, and Fit Guide content. Over the course of the project we tested various design elements and interleaved opportunities for the Alpha Industries team to tell their story as customers shop their products.
ShopVisible Ecommerce Platform
Our close proximity to our commerce partner ShopVisible afforded ample opportunity for multiple rounds of product testing and pre-launch visual refinement. The resulting refresh of the Alpha Industries ecommerce store brought several notable improvements to the site – including improved commerce features like quickview, refined product categories, improved search optimization, and a more seamless integration of commerce pages with brand heritage content.
