Zak Hardage

Before building websites, Zak served as a Naval Officer. When he left the service and began coding, he found the same principles that were successful in the Navy applied to web design. He may have traded his sea legs for CSS, but focusing on people and minding the details are still mission critical. When he's not coding, Zak races for a local cycling team.

"Thanks so much Christine! The website is beautiful! I also ran into a gal last night who is a well known surface designer/graphic designer who told me she LOVED my new logo. I said 'just wait 'til you see the new site!'"

"My experience with Aeolidia really blew me away. Each step of the process was seamless and left me SO excited. Their ability to take my vision for my brand’s new web presence and translate them into gorgeous websites, above and beyond what I dreamed, was incredible.

One of the most impressive aspects of my experience with Aeolidia was the transparency of the process. I knew, on any given day, exactly where my project stood – what they needed from me, when I’d be receiving updates from them, etc. That commitment to making sure my experience was full of excitement and NO worry really underscores the professionalism Aeolidia is dedicated to.

Not only are they super organized, they’re just plain nice : ) They listened to my big ideas, answered all of my little questions and brought my vision to life beautifully. Moving forward, I’m so excited to have a web-partner that my brand can grow and change with. High fives and a big thank you to Aeolidia!"

KOROMIKO

KOROMIKO
KOROMIKO is an independent online design store.

Started from the simple idea to support and promote independent designers producing handmade, authentically sustainable, craft + design objects. We curate a carefully edited collection items for your home and life. We support artisans who hand-make their items in small-batch runs. It’s kinder on the environment and we love the beauty of perfectly imperfect objects made by hand and made to last.

We always look for high-quality craftsmanship, durability, simplicity of function and design aesthetic in the goods we source. We support designers using traditional craft methods in inspiring ways to create functional objects for everyday use that connect us to each other and bring beauty into our homes.

 

Queen Bee Creations

Queen Bee Creations
We've been fans of Queen Bee for years - they're a northwest staple, and Christine, who designed the new site, has two vintage Queen Bee handbags of her own.

The challenge for this project was to bring Rebecca's three lines together seamlessly, while exposing fans of her classic Queen Bee line to her other projects, Chickpea Baby, and Rebecca Pearcy textiles.

The new site makes everything cohesive, with larger photos throughout, and new ways to feature all that Queen Bee does.

"I needed a coherent and professional 'shop window' on the internet. Paying other people with the right experience to do it for me made me interrogate my brand and ask questions of myself which would not have happened if I had attempted to do it all.

I now have an online presence which I am really proud of and can link back to in a million ways be it online, through social media or face to face. The ability to close the sale at the last step of the journey with an e-commerce site is the icing on the cake.

I now look and feel like a professional who means business and the site has actually made me approach my entire brand with a different head on. I'm now more confident in my business and its future than I have ever been.

I wanted to swoop in and say a huge thank you to all of you for helping to make my brand and website beyond my wildest dreams - brilliant. Thank you all for your patience, thousands of miles and thousands of seconds time difference can be challenging but you made it feel like we were in the same room - (although not so close that I could see you tutting and rolling your eyes - which I guess maybe happened now and again?!) ha ha. I am over the moon."

Gardenstore

Gardenstore
In 2005, Kristin opened the Gardenstore, a retail shop featuring gardening supplies, flowers and plants, fresh cut flowers and a few home décor items in the mix. That small retail store has grown and blossomed into Gardenstorehome.com, and we were pleased to start from the ground up (hee hee) to create a logo, identity, and ecommerce site for this wonderful business.

"I simply couldn't be happier with my experience with Aeolidia. It truly was a dream experience. I felt so completely understood and taken care of. Every part of the process and correspondence was incredibly thorough yet efficient. I'm thrilled with the design and the way it all functions. The entire team went above and beyond for me, and I would happily recommend Aeolidia to anyone. "

Etch Design Lab

Etch Design Lab

"Etch is a collaboration between an artist and an interior designer, and we both worried that we'd have a hard time leaving the designing of our web identity and brand to someone we didn't even know. But, we knew how important it was to call in the professionals, since it wasn't within our area of expertise, and we really hoped that our website would "wow" potential clients. Even so, we both had a LOT of hopes and dreams for our branding, given in extreme detail! We are still in awe of how Lauren and Margot were able to translate our conversations into something that feels so close to us, that it's as if the logo and website have always been ours. That's an amazingly exciting thing."

-- Katherine Sable

 

The Flair Exchange

The Flair Exchange

"Since working with the Aeolidia team, my business has experienced a much more proficient work day. I reached out to Aeolidia to create a website that allowed my customers to create custom products & preview them prior to purchasing ( which Zak and the Aeolidia team pulled off flawlessly ), but what I got was a much more cohesive website & visual representation of what The Flair Exchange offers. Having worked with several graphic designers in the past, I initially dreaded the thought of going through a logo redesign. It had always seemed impossible to explain what I wanted. Meg, however was a dream to work with and kept the process concise. The Aeolidia team is incredibly organized and quick to respond to any concerns. While this was a substantial financial investment, it was worth every single penny. Samantha, Meg & Zak are rock stars in our eyes!"
