The challenge

Vicky had been teaching yoga and gardening locally for many years and had been thinking about getting online when the pandemic hit. She spoke to us about taking her very hands-on business to more people and further afield. Vicky asked for an ecommerce shop for her courses and retreats, along with a fresh, natural and vibrant design.

Expertise applied

Goal setting – Creative and design – Content advice – Web development – Ecommerce website design – Photography brief – Stock photography sourcing – WordPress training – Social media advice

The solution

Working with Vicky, it was critical to capture all the elements of her work in a single cohesive design. Following an in depth discussion about her goals and expectations, we built out the site. We also developed a very simple logo with a stylised illustration of an alium, one of Vicky’s favourite flowers. 

The site’s photography was a mix of professional photos taken at a yoga retreat, Vicky’s photos and stock photography we sourced. The ecommerce shop sells her retreats and courses as well as gift vouchers that can be used online. Before we went live, we gave Vicky some training so she can look after her blog and her online store herself.

"Danielle and Ant at Lodge built my first ever, and absolutely brilliant, website for wellbeing through yoga and gardening. In working with them both together throughout the build, their communication was excellent, the process smooth, plus they had a good sense of humour - always important! What was really special about them was that they got to know me, listened to me and my business aspirations and then created a website that perfectly reflected what I offer."
