We also built a bespoke email newsletter template; edited content; and optimized the site for search engines (still in progress). Set up on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter was also part of this project.
We directed two fashion shoots with renowned lifestyle and interiors photographers Elbow Room Productions.

"With the ‘quiet achievers’ at Handmade Web orchestrating the passage of my retail business into, what was for me, the entirely uncharted water of e-commerce, I can say that from day one I felt completely confident with my decision to engage them for the project.
In tune with the physical store’s ambience, which was core to the design brief, Handmade designed and built a completely new website to fit with new technologies and recommended the BigCommerce platform for the e-Emporium. We worked together to a clear plan and timeline devised by them. From photography brief to technical tutorials, the project was handled very professionally with great efficiency, their creative expertise, organisational skills and quiet confidence always evident.
Feedback regarding the site and e-Emporium has been very positive and since launch date we’ve received a steady flow of orders and enquiry, engaging with new customers. Handmade’s recommended social media strategy is clearly paying dividends and with the e-commerce platform providing a wealth of statistics and information to which we are responding, the venture is well on the way to achieving the set goals.
It was a real pleasure working with Handmade, a very talented design team I highly recommend.
