Aeolidia to the rescue!
Island Thyme is a family run, artisan producer of skin and body care products. The company has been making its soaps, balm, creams and lotions for nearly 20 years! Chris came to us when it was time to update the look and functionality of the Island Thyme website.
Aeolidia to the rescue!
Christine began by updating the Island Thyme logo and brand identity. Using a vintage botanical illustration style, the updated identity focuses on the roots of the company — the raw materials from which the products are created.
Christine then created a new website design, which is both clean and welcoming. The concept is consistent with the new eco-modern branding, featuring sophisticated typography with a few handmade touches. The site remains friendly and easy to navigate so that customers can do what they came to do—shop the fantastic products!
What Our Client Had to Say
We are very pleased to say that Aeolidia was everything we had hoped for.
After over a year of looking at shopping-carts and web design companies we selected Shopify and Aeolidia as two halves to a
whole solution for Island Thyme’s e-commerce site redo. Aeolidia’s portfolio of projects was perfect for an “artisan” company like ours. And Shopify offered the structure and back-end we had been hoping for.
At Island Thyme we were used to doing everything, especially on the design end, ourselves. Letting go and trusting was not easy. But we could not be more happy with the results. Islandthyme.com looks so great. The project was completed right on schedule. The branding work Aeolidia proposed doing before the web site development has proved very useful. And Shopify itself has exceeded our expectations.
If you are an “artisan”, “hand-crafted”, “maker”, or just “young-fun-and-hip” company Aeolidia is definitely worth serious consideration. Coupled with Shopify they were a home-run for Island Thyme.
Since 1996, Island Thyme has been creating botanically-based products in small batches from our farm and apothecary studio in the San Juan Islands of Washington. We are passionate about aromatherapy and have a deep respect for the healing properties of plants and their extracts. Though our roots are in our garden and local bioregion, our arms reach wide around the Earth gathering the ingredients we use in our creations. Essential oils, wildcrafted herbs, distillate waters and natural emollients like Shea butter and Jojoba oil are just a few of the muses that guide our original recipes. On any given day (or night) you’ll find us in the studio we built with our own hands. Perched just above the gardens of Island Thyme Farm, it’s where we harvest our crop of soaps, creams, balms and herbal oils. Sharing them with you – and hearing how they’ve made a difference – has been our sincerest joy and pleasure.
