A portfolio of our ecommerce and brochure web design projects.
Bonk & Co
Bonk & Co are an established family business based in Inverness, specialising in wood burning stoves, range cookers and premium home and lifestyle products. They wanted to be able sell online through their website but also showcase the range of stoves, cookers and lifestyle products that can be ordered in store.
We created a Shopify store that replaced the previous WordPress site. Custom development for this store included theme customisation to match the brand identity and enabling products that can’t be bought online to have an Enquire Only button which prepopulates an enquiry form.
The Cheese Lady
The Cheese Lady is an established artisan cheesemonger based in Haddington which had an existing online store built on WordPress. Verdant Spark migrated the store to Shopify.
The new Shopify store was designed in conjuction with Porridge Design, capturing The Cheese Lady’s brand and creating a modern, easy to navigate store.
Custom development included significant theme customisation and the creation of a Cheese Explorer application to help users discover new cheeses based on the types of cheese they enjoy.
East Coast Lobsters
East Coast Lobsters specialise in prepared lobsters and seafood platters for delivery or collection from their location in East Lothian. They wanted to be able sell online through their website rather than taking orders by email, making the order process easier for customers and for the East Coast Lobsters team.
We created a Shopify store that replaced the previous Squarespace site. Customers can now order online, choosing their delivery day at checkout. Custom development for this store included an order aggregator application that makes order preparation easier.
Shopify Store and Point of Sale
grow urban are an established plant store in Edinburgh with two locations. Verdant Spark created a new Shopify store for the business, including a migration from their previous iZettle based ecommerce solution.
The new Shopify store was designed in conjuction with Porridge Design to capture the distinctive brand aesthetic of grow urban and replicate the in store experience.
Custom development included theme customisation and additional features including a videos page and product suggestions based on product tagging.
Thomas Sherriff & Co
Verdant Spark created a new Shopify store for Thomas Sherriff & Co Ltd, a long established agricultural supplier who also sell direct to consumer and were looking to start selling online.
Custom development for this store included the ability to compare products and the creation of a help button to encourage customers to contact the store if they need help selecting the correct product for their needs.
Shopify Store and Point of Sale
Everyone’s Designs have been a feature of Bruntsfield high street in Edinburgh for over 75 years and we were delighted to be the agency that were trusted to take their shop online! We also replaced their existing point of sale solution with Shopify Point of Sale which streamlined the inventory management process.
With such a large inventory, the focus of this store build was ensuring the user journey was simple, allowing customers to find what they are looking for as quickly as possible.
At the same time as the store build, our graphic design partner, Porridge Design, created a new brand identity for the business.
Verdant Spark created a new Shopify store for Janer Designs, an East Lothian business who specialise in creating one-off pieces of furniture and lighting from vintage and salvaged items and Ercol furniture restoration.
Products and blog posts were migrated from the existing WordPress site and a custom gallery was created to show previous creations for customers to browse.
Gibsons of Haddington
Shopify Store and Point of Sale
Verdant Spark created a new Shopify store for this well established East Lothian gift shop. In addition to migrating their old WooCommerce store to Shopify, we also installed Shopify point of sale so that their inventory is easier to manage across the two sales channels.
From a user experience perspective we wanted to recreate the instore experience as much as possible, working with the Gibsons team to create product collections to help users find what they are looking for easily but also encouraging users to browse.
The theme selected by Verdant Spark fits the brand perfectly and is very fast, acheiving high page speed scores and improving the user experience.
The Crafty Kit Company
The Crafty Kit Company are a local company in East Lothian, but with an international reach. Having operated for the last 7 years using an OpenCart based solution, the operation was stretching the limits of that platform. Together with Jo, we redesigned the site to freshen it and migrate all of her products and core content into Shopify, with particular focus on the user experience for her key user persona to ensure that all collections and products are easy to find.
Shopify Store & Theme Customisation
Verdant Spark recently undertook a redesign of the Spice Pots Shopify store. Spice Pots are an East Lothian business that make delicious spice blends. Their old site needed a refresh so we installed a new theme which was then customised to suit their brand and products.
Verdant Spark created custom landing pages for their two blogs so they could group blog posts into categories that would be easy for users to navigate.
Shopify Store & Private App Development
Verdant Spark created a Shopify ecommerce store with a private application that facilitates order management for Minato Sushi, an East Lothian based sushi business.
We worked with Jen and Tom at Minato to create a back end Shopify application that makes their business easier to manage on a day to day basis.
Customers are able to choose a delivery day on the cart page and request a delivery slot, and feedback on the new site has been extremely positive.
Black & Gold Oil
Black & Gold Oil are a local East Lothian food producer who needed a new website with ecommerce functionality. Shopify was the obvious choice and the simple, elegant theme used highlights the fabulous new product photography by Emma Martin Photography. A recipe blog was created to showcase the many uses of the products and the new local pickup and delivery options available within Shopify have been used to encourage local customers.
Verdant Spark created a Shopify ecommerce store for Rosemary Wild, a fantastic startup business selling natural fabrics and craft kits. Rosemary Wild had an existing Etsy store and we were able to migrate the existing products over to Shopify.
Shopify was the clear choice for an online store and the theme selected allows tag filtering on collection pages, perfect for making it easy for fabric shoppers find the fabrics they are looking for.
Rosemary Wild offers free local delivery so the Shopify local delivery option was set up using postcodes so users with an address within the free delivery zone are offered the option for free delivery at checkout.
The In Accessories
The In Accessories needed an upgrade from an old Opencart store that they found difficult to manage and Verdant Spark migrated the old store to a brand new Shopify site!
The new site is faster, easier to navigate for users and much easier for the store owner to manage.
The Daisy Chain
Shopify Store and Theme Customisation
The Daisy Chain are a florist based in East Lothian who had an existing Joomla website but were looking for a new site that would enable them to sell online but also showcase their wedding and event floral design services.
In addition to the store setup Verdant Spark added Shopify theme customisations including a date picker in the cart and page templates including a gallery section.
The Mad Scrapper
The Mad Scrapper, a scrapbooking and craft supplies store in Haddington, needed a more poweful ecommerce solution as their previous WooCommerce site was slow and not suited to a store with a large number of SKUs. A Shopify store was the obvious solution and our main focus was user experience, making sure customers are able to find the products they are looking for easily and quickly but also encouraging them to browse based on product category and brand.
Shopify Store & App Development
Bostock Bakery wanted to bring back their famous pizza nights during the COVID-19 lockdown. Verdant Spark created a Shopify store with custom application development that allows customers to order pizzas for a specific collection slot.
Shopify Store & Custom App Development
We recently created a Shopify online store for Bostock Bakery in East Linton. Due to Covid-19 they needed to rapidly shift to online ordering and delivery.
The work included custom development of a date picker for delivery day selection, and a back end Shopify application that aggregates orders to show daily totals of items ordered so that the bakery knows order volumes to bake for each day’s delivery.
Crafty Kit Company Trade Store
Shopify Store & Custom App Development
This Shopify store mimics the look and feel of The Crafty Kit Company consumer store but required custom development to fulfill the requirements of the client; that customers must apply and be approved before being able to view wholesale pricing and place orders. To aid the transition process to the new store, a customer support button was added so Verdant Spark could deal with support issues, saving the client time.
Elevate Personal Styling
