The dublin bay beard company
We were over the moon to be asked to work on this web design project with The Dublin Bay Beard Company. Producing the most spectacular on trend beard care products, and oozing with wit and personality, we couldn't wait to learn more.
The client came to us with a just a logo and a vision and we are proud to say we helped them to turn their dream of having an online store into a reality. Firstly, we LOVED their logo. A sexy sailor girl representing Dublin Bay with the iconic Poolbeg Chimneys that frame our skyline tatooed on her back!? Sign us up!
The website had to reflect a retro-hipster feel, in keeping with the current bearded culture. Our first idea was to create a wall background with the intention to hang frames, lamps and light fixtures for a unique feel to the sight. This also allowed us to add wooden features, anchors and boat windows in keeping with the Dublin Bay theme. We decided to add a bearded gallery in the form of hanging gold picture frames which we thought would be a unique alternative to the usual rotating slideshow.
The online store was set up using ECWID (an ecommerce platform) and embedded into the site. This allowed the client to keep in control of their own stock, purchases, customers etc. The site was also created to be fully responsive, allowing customers to grab their beard care products from mobile or tablet devices.
Probably our favourite part of the site would be the animated boat port window on the home page, which loops the view of a gently rocking sea. Just to really nail in The Dublin Bay Beard Company experience!! Why not?!
