Client's Problem

Beth, Carrie, and Karen’s goals for the site were all shopping-related. They told us:

“We need a total website design. Blog, info pages, shop for retail, wholesale, and a custom work page for invitations, birth announcements and custom notecards.

We love the way Etsy works, and we’ll never give up that shop, but we would like to be able to bypass the Etsy and PayPal fees, and we’d also like a wholesale login and shop page, as well as a custom item page.”

Our Solutions

Beth told us:

We started by having an Etsy shop, but wanted to be able to offer a complete “1canoe2″ experience to our customers, and we wanted to have a wholesale shop as well.

We were so nervous to turn over the whole look of our site to someone we didn’t know…but it could not have been better! You guys actually “knew” us before… and I think that Arianne had even purchased something from us before. Even if you hadn’t known our actual company, I think that you knew who we were in the global sense, meaning you knew other handmade type businesses like ours, and you knew exactly how to serve us…and design our look!

We really pushed our site to our wholesale customers… and they loved it! We probably could have done more about “launching,” but we did do some advertising on a couple of popular blogs, and we send people there from our e-newsletter and social media.

Our site paid for itself in just 4 weeks! We have been thrilled. And the non-quantitative value is huge. We love that people can go to our site and really know who we are from the first page.

What Our Client Had to Say

Understandably, we were completely overwhelmed by the idea of designing our new site. We knew it needed to look like us and that it needed to be clean and robust. Because of their specialized client base, Aeolidia already knew the type of company we were, without hours of explanation or exhausting revisions. We were so blown away with the first design draft that we only made a few small revisions, and that’s saying something from people as visually picky as we can be. It was intuitively 1canoe2, in a way that we weren’t able to express on our own.

Every step of the process was easy, educational, and organized. I just don’t think it could have gone any smoother or faster. And on top of all that, the final website is above and beyond what we dreamed up ourselves. We are enabled to go create more hand-illustrated products and effortlessly sell them ourselves in just the way we want to present ourselves to the world.
