The Handpicked Vintage Co
The Handpicked Vintage Co is a vintage wares retailer based in Sherborne, Dorset. They needed a stunning online web shop to sell high quality, pre-prepared-for-sale, vintage handbags, jewellery and accessories. As well as the ecommerce website, they also required a complete brand system, from logo through to business stationery and flyers, in order to complement their web shop. Click the ‘See It Live‘ button to see the website and logo out in the wild…
The Handpicked Vintage Co is run by local entrepreneur Claire Noel. Claire had been selling her vintage handbags, jewellery, briefcases, purses and accessories through her eBay shop and decided the time was right to move up a level. So she called upon Digiwool to design her a complete brand identity system from a flexible and versatile logo, through business stationery, email layout, promotional and marketing items and of course the e-Commerce website.
I built the webshop using the Woocommerce engine which is a super flexible and easy-to-use online shop management system. With one training session from myself, Claire went ahead and populated her shop with tens of lovely products. And because each item is a one-off, the stock is constantly changing, once it’s sold, it’s gone and so it was really important the site was a breeze to use allowing for quick and simple updating and product additions.
I really enjoyed this project and had lots of fun sourcing old pictures of vintage items and models. I look forward to seeing Claire grow her business further and I will be with her every retro-step of the way!
Here’s what Claire said about my work:
“I couldn’t be happier with the website and branding, Matt had a really good understanding of what I wanted and brought it to life. He’s always willing to help with any technical problems/questions quickly which is invaluable. A super talented man!”
