What they had to say:
I back Alicia 500%! It was a joy working with her. She even gave me a crash course in color theory and some photography tips that helped me create professional looking photos for my website. Alicia is truly caring and attentive to your needs, highly recommended.
The Back Story:
The Chocolate Maya website was long overdue for a remodel. It just wasn’t putting the best face forward for the company. The rich vibrancy of the shop and Maya’s deep knowledge of chocolate had not translated to the current web presence.
I paid numerous visits to the shop so that I could soak in the ambience and practically got sugar drunk off of the pervasive sweet aroma of chocolate. I took note of the decor of the shop and realized that the rich reds, oranges and browns needed to be mirrored on the site. There was also a loving care that Maya took with displaying her chocolates and of course a little bit of quirkiness. I wanted out of towners or first time visitors to the shop to recognize it right away if they’d only seen the website.
Maya also wanted a catalog on the site without ordering capabilities. I utilized the WooCommerce plugin, turning off any shopping cart configurations and hiding frontend cart design elements.
When it came to product photos, I gave Maya a quick tutorial on color theory and lighting. She took off from there, photographing all product herself and acing it, in my opinion!
The result it is a lush, rich mouthwatering site that is enough to jumpstart those chocolate cravings!
