We're proud to announce, after a successful collaboration, the launch of Geraldo’s of Largs new website and online store.

Geraldo’s are a family run retailer based in Largs, Ayrshire, specialising in artisan ice cream, handmade chocolates, gift ideas and traditional Scottish produce.

THE PROJECT

 

Geraldo’s were looking to expand its online presence and begin selling its specialist products online, dipping their toes into e-commerce. As a web design focused digital agency, we began looking into the best approach and platform to build and manage an online shop for the client. Our web developer and web designer worked closely together to build a functioning and aesthetically pleasing online shop that not only best fit the needs of the client, but also the customer, ensuring simplicity was at the forefront of our minds.

Running an online shop can be particularly tricky if you don’t utilise the right platform. We decided for this project the correct platform for Geraldo’s was Shopify. Shopify is the leading cloud-based, multi channel commerce platform, designed for small and medium sized businesses. Shopify is currently powering over 500,000 online stores, Shopify boasts extensive inventory and reporting abilities which makes for smarter business decisions.

THE NEW DESIGN

 

 

THE RESULTS

The process, all in all, took 3 months from planning to completion, and we are pleased to see Geraldo’s embrace their new website.

Craig Miller, the managing director at Mucky Puddle was the lead on this project:

“Geraldo’s had asked for a new ecommerce based website to tie in with a new brand launch & shop re-fit. Geraldo’s required a new ecommerce platform as the current technology wasn’t fulfilling the requirements of the business. We began working on the Shopify platform for Geraldo’s as we deemed it the perfect fit.”

When asked about the hardest part of the process Craig stated:

“It was essential that we paid respect to the new Geraldo’s brand, acknowledging the history, the family and the accolades whilst focusing on the passion for the produce and promoting high quality products.”

On completion of the project, Louise Brobyn, Events & Marketing Manager at Geraldo's had this to say about the process:

"It has been a pleasure to work with the Mucky Puddle team to create the new Geraldo's website.  From the offset, they understood what we wanted to achieve through our new brand and have created not only a fabulous looking website, but one that is incredibly easy to use."

On the transition to the new platform Shopify, Louise found:

"Shopify is an excellent and simple platform on which to list products and process orders. As we are organising and attending an increasing number of events within the food and drinks industry, it also allows us to list our events and sell tickets directly from our website.  We look forward to working with Craig and his team to grow and develop our business online."

So if you're on the look out for great Christmas gift ideas head on over to Geraldo's.
