I’m thrilled to share this project with you guys today! I don’t always share my development work on the blog, but this one is special. Shayla and I met through blogging and social media a while ago, and when we realized we lived about 15 minutes apart, we decided to meet up for coffee! It’s been so great getting to know her and her business, so I was super pumped when she asked me to develop her website. I knew her design would be beautiful, and it didn’t disappoint!
This project is also a little different than my usual work because it’s a Shopify site. I don’t take on many ecommerce projects, but I’ve really fallen in love with this platform. If you’re hoping to build an online store, I totally recommend that you check it out!
I love her whimsical style of hand lettering and illustration, and the humor behind a lot of her products (like this one.) Her cards are so cool! And do you want to hear a funny story? When we were getting ready for my friend’s wedding at the beginning of July, the photographer came in and was talking about getting a shot of the bride reading the card her fiancé had written her before the wedding. I turned around and it was this card, which is especially weird because I’d just finished doing the bulk of my work on the site that week and this was the card that I usually clicked on to develop the individual product page. It kinda blew my mind, so of course I tweeted a picture to Shayla! The internet definitely makes our world smaller. I dig it.
