Aeolidia to the rescue!
Gather Here was 5 years old, and had recently relocated a mere 7 minute walk from their “birth place” to the heart of Inman Square in Cambridge, MA, surrounding themselves with a vibrant small business community. With an outdated, slow to load website that was a pain to update and hard for customers to use, Virginia and Noah were eager to redesign. With the opening of their awesome new space that was a labor of DIY love, they wanted their online presence to be just as awesome.
Aeolidia to the rescue!
We delivered a modern, uncluttered, user-friendly site that still feels warm and inviting, with nods to hand crafts (sewing, knitting, and the like) sprinkled throughout. We built upon their existing red and gray color palette by introducing a friendly blue tone used throughout, and created a sleek new online shop and class calendar for crafters to find anything their yarn-shaped hearts may desire.
What Our Client Had to Say
What we absolutely loved about our experience would have to be the actual process Aeolidia uses to “get to know you.” Through a series of questions that really asked us to delve deep into who we are as a company and what we want from our business, Aeolidia developed a Shopify site that reflected the essence of gather here. We found the soul-searching to be just what we needed to discover who we really are.
