Laura Darrington Design are one of the UK’s leading luxury greeting card designers. You will find their cards stocked in notable stores such as Waitrose, John Lewis, WH Smiths, Harrods, Paperchase & Ocado.
The team approached us to evolve their ecommerce design, deliver a stronger experience to their trade customers and increase the brand’s exposure to new consumers.
We wanted the new website to reflect the stunning quality of Laura’s cards. So before touching a line of code, we designed a completely bespoke homepage, product and category page.
We then built the site with options in place to allow their team to easily manage the store and website content.
Laura Darrington have a large number of trade customers and also required a facility to offer their product catalogue at wholesale prices.
We delivered a bespoke design and a tailored experience for their trade customers.
To enrich the website and the upcoming marketing campaign, we carried out a stylised photoshoot, creating stunning images of their luxury cards.
We also conducted a product shoot in which we captured over 400 product images for the product pages on the site.
Creating stunning images is an important part of what makes our campaigns so successful.
With the new website launched we are now supporting the team grow their online sales and trade customer interactions through a National SEO Strategy.
