"Aeolidia was fantastic from beginning to end. They are like mind-readers, able to know exactly what I want when I can't put it into words."
-- Elizabeth Cassel
Stargrass Paper Co.
"I wanted to let you know that working with your team was really wonderful. Creating the website was a bit harder than I thought with a day job that got quite busy during the middle of the site development, but Margot and Zak did a great job of keeping me on track (as best they could) even when I was falling behind again and again.
Even more important, they were able to take my ideas and questions and build the site I couldn't even quite picture at the beginning. And the logo is just amazing. I knew it was awesome when I handed out business cards at the National Stationery Show and my favorite designers were giving me compliments! Really pleased and look forward to launching my site (as soon as I can get all of my content up)."
-- Alexandria Drohobyczer
The Flair Exchange
"Since working with the Aeolidia team, my business has experienced a much more proficient work day. I reached out to Aeolidia to create a website that allowed my customers to create custom products & preview them prior to purchasing ( which Zak and the Aeolidia team pulled off flawlessly ), but what I got was a much more cohesive website & visual representation of what The Flair Exchange offers. Having worked with several graphic designers in the past, I initially dreaded the thought of going through a logo redesign. It had always seemed impossible to explain what I wanted. Meg, however was a dream to work with and kept the process concise. The Aeolidia team is incredibly organized and quick to respond to any concerns. While this was a substantial financial investment, it was worth every single penny. Samantha, Meg & Zak are rock stars in our eyes!"
-- Carmen Taylor Rogge
Freshie & Zero
"Thanks so much Christine! The website is beautiful! I also ran into a gal last night who is a well known surface designer/graphic designer who told me she LOVED my new logo. I said 'just wait 'til you see the new site!'"
-- Beth Lawrence
Noisy Dog Studio
Lauren designed a contemporary new site for her, to reflect the growth and change in Leigh's painting style.

"I have nothing negative or constructive to say. I think it looks totally awesome. My husband and I are looking at it and literally grinning from ear to ear. I think this is the winner. THANK YOU!!"
-- Rebecca Kestenbaum
"My experience with Aeolidia really blew me away. Each step of the process was seamless and left me SO excited. Their ability to take my vision for my brand’s new web presence and translate them into gorgeous websites, above and beyond what I dreamed, was incredible.
One of the most impressive aspects of my experience with Aeolidia was the transparency of the process. I knew, on any given day, exactly where my project stood – what they needed from me, when I’d be receiving updates from them, etc. That commitment to making sure my experience was full of excitement and NO worry really underscores the professionalism Aeolidia is dedicated to.
Not only are they super organized, they’re just plain nice : ) They listened to my big ideas, answered all of my little questions and brought my vision to life beautifully. Moving forward, I’m so excited to have a web-partner that my brand can grow and change with. High fives and a big thank you to Aeolidia!"

"Aeolidia did an amazing job throughout the entire process. We are so happy with everything they did,They really understood the look we were going for and made sure the site was everything we had imagined it to be."
-- Kendall Glazer
Libby Lane Press
"Well to say I am excited is pretty much the understatement of the year! I had analyzed, over-analyzed, and just about drove myself mad deciding whether to take this leap of faith with a custom e-commerce shop for Libby Lane Press and I am thrilled with my decision.
Aeolidia was a professional and skilled team that went above and beyond to ensure that the custom Shopify shop I envisioned for my business was created to not only meet my expectations, but exceed them. Arianne, Samantha, Jon and Christine displayed their expertise through every step of the process. I highly recommend Aeolidia and cannot wait to work with them again in the future."
-- Nicolle Spitulnik
Sycamore Street Press
"While designing the website, I kept in mind your desire for a clean, beautiful, easy-to-navigate website. Inspired by your wonderful (his)story and work ethic, I created a homepage that is both warm and inviting but also clear and simple, which I think speaks to the quality of your products."
Pippin Vintage Jewelry
Miri told us: "Miri tee is a boutique online store which will sell a unique collection of handpicked products. They are quirky, fun and affordable. I am starting off focusing on children but am hoping to expand so don't want to be to tied down with any child like logos etc. I have been a stylist for 15 years. I want the site to be cool, simple and easy to use but quirky too. I like to laugh and not that I want the website to make me laugh but don't want it to be boring!"
Shalon created a website that celebrates wandering, with a simple mobile theme for visitors on smartphones.
One of our first willing guinea pigs was Cardtorial! For a logo redesign/refresh we keep a thing or two about the original logo – whatever is working well and that the client is happy with. We’ll keep the icon, the font, the color scheme. Our aim is for the final logo to look familiar to existing customers, and be an upgrade rather than a departure.
"I knew when I saw Aeolidia listed on Shopify Experts that they were the perfect fit for my project! At first I was a little hesitant about the process of the project and it came to my surprise that I would not have phone communication with anyone at the company, but I quickly learned that Aeolidia knows exactly what they are doing! They have streamlined the process of developing a website to a “T”. They were very thorough and direct in obtaining what they needed from me in order to build me a website that I would be happy with. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and everyone on the team was efficient, accommodating and and expert at what they do! I am very happy with my new website and have already received a ton of compliments. I would without a doubt recommend using Aeolidia to anyone looking for a headache free website experience, they were fantastic!"

"At Gifts Define, “do our very best” is not a mission, it’s a statement! I truly love what I do and am obsessed in making my clients happy with the creations I make! When the time came to improve Gifts Define’s e-commerce website functionality, design and branding, I was completely overwhelmed! Did tons of research, I realized there are so many web design companies out there to choose from! Sometimes the thought of not being able to find the one who would understand the visions and aspirations of my creative company – is wearisome!
Then I thought of Arianne at Aeolidia. I first heard about Aeolidia back in 2006 when I was looking for a web designer to create my first website. Although then, she was not available to take on my project. Now, 7 years later, still trusting my initial judgment; I decided to contact Arianne once again and convinced that Aeolidia was the right company to take on this momentous project of mine!
What a decision well-made! My belief is when you expect the best, work with the absolute best! Arianne is very attentive in keeping my project ahead. There were some minor glitches in the beginning of the design process but she handled things promptly and professionally! Moreover, working closely with Lauren, Jon, Jena and Dewi have been delightful! I wish I could have the brains of these individuals in mine! Very organized, super creative, resourceful and simply brilliant in what they do!
I want to extend my big thanks to Arianne and team Aeolidia for making my dream website come true! Thank you for your endless patience in listening and understanding my ideas while thoughtfully bring them into realizations. After 5 months of dedication, commitment and enthusiasm from the Aeolidia’s team, I never thought that I’d be so pleased and proud to have a fabulous website to represent Gifts Define in front of millions…. Thank you!"
-- Irma Niekum
Jena worked with Elizabeth on a playful new business name, and then Liz got to work on a logo that expressed the exuberance and charm that Elizabeth was looking for. Lauren worked meticulously on the website design, and we're just thrilled with the results.
We have been pretty old school up until now, and a little for everyone at the moment. Not exactly super niche, we do supply those with less popular crafts.
I would like our customers to view us and our website as informative, easy to use/convenient, clear and robust. I would like the site to help us keep our customers engaged and informed and add convenience to their shopping with us."

"Awesome communication, totally impressed with how all of you were so professional. It was a pleasure working with you guys."
-- Akiko Giometti
"What a wonderful experience it has been for us to work together with such a creative, competent, organized, passionate and professional team! Looking back over the last couple of months THE BEST decision we made was to appoint Aeolidia with the task of turning our vision & dreams into a reality. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for absolutely everything, we could not be prouder of elephantshoe.com.
Thank you for listening to every tiny detail and making the changes large and small to get the site 100% perfect. We so hope to work more with you in the near and far future. We will be sure to recommend you to others! "

"Enchanted Leaves is a jewelry company I started in 2002 as a hobby while I was a college student. It all started with the electroplated leaves(where I got the business name from!). I married my husband in 2009, and he officially became part of the business! He brought his skill of soldering and innovative thinking to help me design some of our best selling pieces. Over the years my business has grown into an awesome business that I was able to quit my day job to work on full time!
The things we offer are cute and unique jewelry that are nature and geeky themed :) Leaves, acorns, animals and insects, cute miniature objects, and our “geekery”- items inspired by literature, movies, music, and TV shows (my Lord of the Rings/the Hobbit and Harry Potter inspired designs have been a HUGE success)."
"During my tenure at Penland I made a series of large scale drawings. In my previous (college / art school) experience, we were encouraged to "think outside the frame" so I got used to pinning pieces to the wall or pursuing some alternative means to display my work.
Every time I had the drawings critiqued by visiting artists or peers, the person giving the critique would encourage me to seek a framer. I resisted (I guess I thought that was a boring solution) and when I gave in my drawings suddenly looked legitimate. It was like seeing them in formal wear! They looked so tight and so professional.
Essentially seeing my jewelry in the context of the new website is just like seeing my drawings framed. Wow! Mind you, I used a great framer then and obviously the best web designers this go round!
The other thing that happened when I framed these drawings is that they sold! I am hoping that the website will give further legitimacy to my business (resulting in sales) in addition to providing a nice home for my jewelry."

We curate a carefully edited collection items for your home and life. We support artisans who hand-make their items in small-batch runs. It’s kinder on the environment and we love the beauty of perfectly imperfect objects made by hand and made to last.
We always look for high-quality craftsmanship, durability, simplicity of function and design aesthetic in the goods we source. We support designers using traditional craft methods in inspiring ways to create functional objects for everyday use that connect us to each other and bring beauty into our homes.
