Aeolidia to the rescue!
Ladini contacted us last year about redesigning her logo and website. She told us:
The primary goals for our ecommerce site are to help generate online sales and begin an online presence that reflects who we are now and can potentially grow and evolve with us. We would like the site to attract current and new customers, wholesale accounts, press and bloggers. It will be a platform that stimulates ongoing and constant engagement with our customers. We hope to inspire, educate and curate. Our objective is to attract a refined clientele, who appreciates beautiful jewelry and value handcrafted, quality products.
Aeolidia to the rescue!
Margot on our team began by creating a new logo and identity for Amata Jewelry Studio which is a great improvement over the simple text logo that Ladini was using before. Margot was inspired by Amata’s gemstone jewelry and created geometric gemstone shapes for the logo which feel contemporary, yet refined.
The new Amata Jewelry Studio website is refined and elegant, showing off the beautiful jewelry pieces that Ladini creates. The new site uses variant images that change the featured product image based on the user’s selection, and includes a “More Colors” feature on the collection pages to let customers know at a glance if a product is available in additional colors or with additional stones. The large product photography is our favorite aspect of the site – it really showcases the products in a spectacular way.
What Our Client Had to Say
We’ve received hundreds of wonderful comments on social media and in person about our new branding and website thanks to Aeolidia! Designing and developing our first ecommerce site was one of the most extensive and fairly complex projects for our small business. A project of this scope can be very intimidating and overwhelmingly complex, however, the Aeolidia team are remarkable communicators, which made the project streamlined, efficient and enjoyable. From the creative skills of the designers to the highly organized project coordinator to the expertise of the developer Aeolidia is a truly professional team that was a pleasure to work with. They were always there to gently guide me through the new world of ecommerce and every seemingly minor or complex issue was always addressed. I’m so grateful to have a team of experts that Amata Jewelry Studio can grow and develop with.
Quick Brand Guide
In Café Des Amis on the north shore of Maui, an Italian guy made a crepe with an enormous red heart on it for a California born, British-raised girl. So began the collaboration of Ladini and Mario, co-creators of Amata Jewelry Studio…
