Amber's Problem

We’re a new art boutique/stationery/not-sure-what-phrase-encompasses-it company that is offering printable and physical products featuring original illustrations.

We’re at the stage where the website issue is holding us back, and are looking to upgrade the eyesore to something that engages a visitor, presents our offerings well, looks great, and navigates intuitively.

I do the business side of things and have been (a) not adding things to the site because of not having good photography and (b) not marketing our site because I don’t believe the site will engage potential visitors in the best way.

I’d love to be contacting bloggers and reaching out to more indie craft stores, but with the site being such an eyesore, I want to wait until it’s worthy of their attention. For example, I have a standing offer for coverage by a blogger with 70K+ Twitter followers, etc, etc, but I don’t feel good about accepting the offer without a better site. In the next few months we’ll also enter into a relationship that will likely bring lots of new visitors to our site, and we’d love for them to see something great!

Our Solutions

Amber & Brady came to us with a fairly established brand – centered around a playfully serious Jackalope character. We tweaked his proportions slightly and added some new brand elements to take their look further: new fonts, texture, monogram, and little star details. We were going for a universal gender-neutral storybook feel that would appeal to kids and adults alike. That, plus new site architecture and blog, and they’re off and running!

What Our Client Had to Say

Working with Aeolidia was amazing in every way.

Before we began, Aeolidia took their time listening to us and gaining an understanding of where we were with our business and what we aimed to change in working with them. The package they created met these needs exactly.

As we began, they spent time helping us understand our own aesthetic. And while all the conversations centered around our preferences, they also provided counsel whenever we desired it.

Throughout the project they were incredibly easy and fun to communicate with and work with. We have an incredibly scattered life at the moment, and they were incredibly accommodating. They made it easy to be forthcoming with them and I never felt my concerns were a burden in anyway. I needed that in a project like this.

In the end they accomplished so much more than we would have ever been able to conceptualize on our own. They “got” our brand and brought it life and gave us the fuel to enter the next chapter.

I can’t recommend Aeolidia highly enough!
