Flame Work Designs

We absolutely loved working with Victoria-based artists Flame Work Designs, to create their new ecommerce site! We worked with them to bring their vision to life focusing on a clean and modern Shopify store that really makes their unique jewelry pieces pop. We also supported them in setting up Facebook Commerce for their store so they can integrate their products on Instagram and Facebook as well as ran a marketing campaign to kick off their new store.

Santa Photo 2020

Santa isn’t immune to changing times, and in the time of COVID, he wasn’t able to meet kids in person at his usual hangout at Lougheed Mall, Coquitlam, BC. We helped him out by creating in just a few short days a website designed to take orders for interactive Zoom sessions with kids, securely handle payment, auto-schedule Zoom calls, and generate a unique picture postcard to be mailed to the kids before Christmas comes. We’re not saying we saved Christmas singlehandedly, but …

Santa Andy might say otherwise.

Bumbles & Clover

This new business was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The owner saw an opportunity for an online ecommerce store for pre-loved children’s clothing, given the uncertainty of a second wave and what that could do for brick and mortar thrift shops. Their website was going to be key to the success of their business given they would not be operating a physical store. We worked with them to create the exact aesthetic they were looking for, providing brand guidelines with brand colours, fonts, logos, and social media assets.

Using Shopify, we built their ecommerce store creating custom collections for the many categories of clothing and accessories, custom forms to collect customer consignment details, and extensive back-end support to set-up automatic emails, marketing and customer support. Prior to the website launch, we provided extensive training so that the owner was able to take over the store and run it on their own, which was important to them. We loved working on this project as we got to help them put their best brand forward from the moment their store went live!

Morrison Creek Streamkeepers

This wonderful organization came to us when their website was no longer functioning with broken pages, out of date content and style, and an inaccessible website beyond the front page. It was time to refresh their online presence so that they could continue to share the important work they are doing within the community and create a space for members to keep in touch with all the important initiatives that are taking place.

We were able to save all of their historical content that was no longer accessible, and organize it in a way that was user friendly and mission focused. Working together, we created a new aesthetic for their website with stunning photographs, many of which were taken by their members. One of the main sections they wanted to focus on was their species pages so we created a new system that automatically updated new species through the app iNaturalist so that members could add species as they were photographed or discovered in the area. We really enjoyed this project, especially because it was all about our neighbourhood. Not only did we enjoy creating a much stronger online presence for the organization, but we learned a ton about the local area along the way!

She Talon – Creative Nail Services

This small business located in Abbotsford, BC was looking to create a brand-new website to increase her web presence and offer her customers the ability to book appointments online. Prior to the launch of her new website, she used social media to promote her services but knew it was time to take her busines to the next level. We worked with her to develop her brand colours, fronts, and structure of her new site. Even though this simple site was a one-pager, it functioned very similar to a multi-page site with responsive menus and a user-friendly experience. We were thrilled to deliver this bright and vibrant website that perfectly captures She Talon’s creative nail services.

Comox Valley Astronomy Club

Before we created their new site, the Comox Valley Astronomy Club had no web presence and communicated with its members entirely through email or small ads in the local paper. We were able to deliver them a website that served as a landing page for new members, as well as a resource for all Astronomy enthusiasts. The goal of the new website was to provide a space where members could learn when the next meetings are, when the sky conditions were optimal, and any upcoming Astronomical events. Since the website went live, the Astronomy Club has been able to increase their membership base and connect with their members in a much more streamlined way.

Comox Valley Cycling Coalition

This local advocacy group was in need of a website redesign to help them reach more members, and share the important work they were doing in the community. Prior to their new update, the website functioned as a blog with news items being added at the top of a long list of pages. We worked with them to thoughtfully redesign the flow of their website so that they were able to have a more traditional landing page that explained what the CVCCo did and who they were before sharing the latest news updates. We condensed the top menu down to five headings with sub-headings that made sense under each page. Through our work we were able to develop a fresh site that was designed with the user experience in mind, creating a site where members could come to learn and access resources in a straight-forward easy to navigate way.
