I started fernworks over 8-9 years ago. I create a unique line of jewelry which combines real found objects and tiny hand painted scenes into thick layers of resin. I use teeny brushes and toothpicks to create little 3-D landscapes and scenes of birds, foxes, bears, and other creatures. I also have a line in which I embed real objects in resin like moss, bones, plants, wasp nests, etc. My work is dreamy, natural, sometimes mysterious, sometimes sweet, & sometimes a little dark... People compare the work to little dioramas, reliquaries, or little "scientific specimens."
Robert says: "I like to tell people that I'm a fella who is craft driven, design inspired, vintage obsessed and cake possessed. Professionals are being brought in to exorcise the cake situation, but all of those other descriptors are running rampant. I'm an arts and crafts professional with an education in studio arts and art history who has been fortunate to work in creative fields all of my life – from appraiser of modern and contemporary art for 13 years to web video producer. I now produce and present on-camera DIY tutorials for the YouTube audience, inspiring people to tackle creative projects in the lifestyle arena (home, office, family, entertaining, holiday)."
"As soon as I started my project with Aeolidia, I knew I was in good hands. Not only did the company have experience working with the same kinds of artisans and small businesses that I wanted to include on my website, but everyone on the team was so incredibly professional, responsive and organized. Every question, concern or request that I had, no matter how small or large, was addressed quickly. I loved that I knew exactly where things were with the project at any given time and what was expected of me. Christine and Shoshanna worked to create something beautiful and functional that ended up exceeding all my expectations.
I also can't say enough about how helpful my mojo sessions with Jena were. In the beginning, I was a little skeptical that they were necessary, but I soon realized that the suggestions she had for promoting and growing my site were invaluable. I know I still have a lot to learn, but she gave me a great foundation. And considering how much continuing education costs these days, it was actually a bargain!
Aeolidia is such a great company, with super-nice people, and I feel so fortunate to have been able to work with them."

"I worked with Mariah and Aeolidia for Logo, Branding & Identity and it was a joy to work with them. They were highly professional, very well organized and I loved the transparency of the whole process. It was always clear to me who was responsible for what and by when. Mariah knew what questions to asked and guided me beautifully through the process of creating a logo that is perfect for us. I couldn't be happier – or more grateful, and I would highly recommend them."

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
"I worked with Aeolidia on creating my website many years ago, and when the time came to do a rebrand, there really wasn't any question about who I would turn to. I had been wanting to do a proper branding of the whole business for years but I knew that until I had a solid idea of what I wanted out of it, the end result wouldn't be satisfying.
I want to use this opportunity to talk a little about how I went through this process because there's definitely a trick to it. I believe there are two really important things to do when hiring someone to work on your branding. The first was understanding the message that I wanted to get across for Prismera. Knowing where you want to stand with your customers is paramount- Aeolidia is almost magic but even they can't tell you what your business stands for.
The second was this: TRUST THE PROFESSIONALS. I won't lie, there were moments during the design process where I doubted some of the decisions. But every time I took the sketches and had them polled by a larger group of online shoppers, the overwhelming response was that Meg knew what she was doing and I needed to let her!
Tackling the website refresh and designing the packaging materials afterwards was a breeze. The gorgeous icons made it easy to organize the site in a clear way and Aeolidia was quick to jump in with opinions when things didn't seem quite right. It's wonderful to be able to rely on their extra eyeballs. What else can I say- Aeolidia, you make me fall in love with you over and over again."

Stargrass Paper Co.
"I wanted to let you know that working with your team was really wonderful. Creating the website was a bit harder than I thought with a day job that got quite busy during the middle of the site development, but Margot and Zak did a great job of keeping me on track (as best they could) even when I was falling behind again and again.
Even more important, they were able to take my ideas and questions and build the site I couldn't even quite picture at the beginning. And the logo is just amazing. I knew it was awesome when I handed out business cards at the National Stationery Show and my favorite designers were giving me compliments! Really pleased and look forward to launching my site (as soon as I can get all of my content up)."

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!"

Freshie & Zero
"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!'"
-- Beth Lawrence
Noisy Dog Studio
Lauren designed a contemporary new site for her, to reflect the growth and change in Leigh's painting style.

"I have nothing negative or constructive to say. I think it looks totally awesome. My husband and I are looking at it and literally grinning from ear to ear. I think this is the winner. THANK YOU!!"
-- Rebecca Kestenbaum
"You did better than finding one that was close to being 'it'. You hit the nail on the head!!! We LOVE the first one and your comments were perfect!! Inspiring Artistry fit us to a tee! We love that it is deceptively simple yet there is so much meaning behind it!!
WOW. The logo revision is the perfect blend of quirky elegance!! :) We LOVE IT!!! You’ve captured our products and personality perfectly!!"
-- Kristen Rice
Miri told us: "Miri tee is a boutique online store which will sell a unique collection of handpicked products. They are quirky, fun and affordable. I am starting off focusing on children but am hoping to expand so don't want to be to tied down with any child like logos etc. I have been a stylist for 15 years. I want the site to be cool, simple and easy to use but quirky too. I like to laugh and not that I want the website to make me laugh but don't want it to be boring!"
One of our first willing guinea pigs was Cardtorial! For a logo redesign/refresh we keep a thing or two about the original logo – whatever is working well and that the client is happy with. We’ll keep the icon, the font, the color scheme. Our aim is for the final logo to look familiar to existing customers, and be an upgrade rather than a departure.
Jena worked with Elizabeth on a playful new business name, and then Liz got to work on a logo that expressed the exuberance and charm that Elizabeth was looking for. Lauren worked meticulously on the website design, and we're just thrilled with the results.

"Awesome communication, totally impressed with how all of you were so professional. It was a pleasure working with you guys."
-- Akiko Giometti
"During my tenure at Penland I made a series of large scale drawings. In my previous (college / art school) experience, we were encouraged to "think outside the frame" so I got used to pinning pieces to the wall or pursuing some alternative means to display my work.
Every time I had the drawings critiqued by visiting artists or peers, the person giving the critique would encourage me to seek a framer. I resisted (I guess I thought that was a boring solution) and when I gave in my drawings suddenly looked legitimate. It was like seeing them in formal wear! They looked so tight and so professional.
Essentially seeing my jewelry in the context of the new website is just like seeing my drawings framed. Wow! Mind you, I used a great framer then and obviously the best web designers this go round!
The other thing that happened when I framed these drawings is that they sold! I am hoping that the website will give further legitimacy to my business (resulting in sales) in addition to providing a nice home for my jewelry."

- Make our site much more aesthetically pleasing to our customers.
- Make the back-end easier for us.
- Move them to a more stable software platform to grow on.
Melissa designed the logo and illustrations, and Lauren created the site design. We ordinarily work with designers and creatives who want a lot of input into the process, but for this project we were given free rein for design decisions, coming up with a polished and professional look that is also fun and appealing to their target audience.
"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."
-- Jon Harvey
"Our previous website is 8 years old! It was the first and only Rare Device website, the one that Rena and Arianne worked on together when Rare Device first opened in 2005. Having said that, the fact that it lasted 8 years and was still useful to us speaks volumes about how well-made it was. When I decided that it was time to have a new website, I thought that it was a great opportunity to create a new logo as well. I wanted our new logo to be clean, modern, but fun, which is what Rare Device is all about.
The team at Aeolidia have been spectacular, starting with our designer, Meg Lewis, who captured my vision so vividly. Meg also designed our new logo, which I just love! From the moment Meg showed me the initial logo concepts, I knew we were in great hands. Our developer, Zoe Rooney, brought Meg's designs to life and was very patient and comforting as we went through some issues that were all eventually resolved. "

"I could not be more thrilled with my experience working with Aeolidia -- my site was completely tailored to my ecommerce needs and is absolutely wonderful.
We have received dozens of comments on how easy the new site is to use, and how gorgeous it looks.
Our wholesale requests tripled since the launch of the site, and we are definitely sending the vibe that we are a high end brand!"
-- Amy Richardson
"Our store was built on the philosophy of only carrying shoes that promote natural foot health and development, so we hand select all our products based on quality, style and age/stage appropriate design. We definitely cater to a more narrowed selection of style that is MODERN, URBAN and OUTDOORSY – we steer clear of loafers and classics (we like to call them Grandma Bait!). We offer the expertise, personal service and product knowledge of a boutique store while providing the shopping perks of a big store like huge selection, great prices, free shipping & easy returns."
Chalese also gives us a great example of how having focused goals results in a successful website. Check out these well thought out goals:
"Our ultimate goal is to sell product, but we want to be everyone’s first go-to resource when they’re looking for kids shoes & accessories. So we don’t want someone walking away thinking I just got a great deal on a pair of shoes from some random online store, we want our customers to love their entire shopping experience with us so they want to come back and tell all of their friends about us.
We want our customers to know we have the best selection of kids shoes and accessories, that we offer free, fast shipping on all orders over $20 to US & Canada, that we’re here to help them find the perfect shoes for their kids with our real customer service, expert product knowledge and sizing help, and that we stand behind everything we sell. We also want our site to be really easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for."
