Website Refresh for Small Online Retailer

Xanthies Wardrobe is a small clothes retailer based in Brisbane, Australia. They source comfortable and versatile pieces for women of all ages, who wish to make a statement on a budget.

Owner and operator, Belinda, was working with a tight budget but keen to update and modernise the website. She wished to appear more legitimate, professional and attractive to her female clientele. Her website was already built on Shopify; though I’d never used the platform before I was certain we could work something out we could both be happy with in the end.

Because of budget constraints, I decided to focus on the homepage first and foremost, while making small copy updates throughout the rest of the site. Thankfully, there is a free page builder app in Shopify called Pagefly. Using this app I was able to quickly build a new modern and responsive homepage in just a few hours.

I kept true to the overall feel of the brand, with custom graphics that incorporated the existing branding colours and photography. The current design leaves room for a further refresh when new products and lines become available. I also love the addition of the Instagram feed at the bottom of the page, so customers can see their new purchases in action.

I really enjoyed this quick refresh, as I always love a challenge and the opportunity to learn something new. I really appreciate the trust Belinda placed in me to deliver something she liked, while working within her budget. I look forward to the opportunity of working together again soon!

Whether you need a quick face lift on your homepage, or a full rebuild, I work hard to deliver a modern and exciting end product for any budget. If you like what I’ve done here and want to know what I can do for you, get in touch! I can’t wait to get to know you and your business better!
