Feeling super proud of the new website redesign for Mugi Pottery, an interactive pottery studio in Manhattan's Upper West Side.
After designer/producer Katie took pottery classes there many years ago - before the iPhone existed! - Mugi Pottery became a website client. We first housed their website in Joomla, then in Drupal, and now in Squarespace.
Putting this website together for them was such a pleasure. Favorite parts?
- That more photos and galleries are so much easier now.
- The SUPER EASY "Blocks" that Squarespace makes available that we can use as call to action buttons, without designing a color graphic! Now their ecommerce is real easy to lay out.
- The Teachers have their own page of bios so that web visitors can see who really makes up Mugi Pottery.
- Mugi had been busting out of their top navigation. While it had been pretty to look at, the dual-side bar of the previous design was cumbersome and costly to widen. But now...
Owner Outi Putkonen elected to use Ocassion to handle their class registrations, workshops, and one-off classes. While Squarespace could have handled this, Ocassion is simple to use. Using Squarespaces "Block" was easy enough to mimic a checkout button.
More Digital! Bigger Footprint
Outi is unleashed, and not only has she fired up their Instagram feed, but she has a YouTube channel as well. Thanks to Squarespace's drag n drop Video feature, adding those videos will be very easy. Take a visit, and if you're in NYC, do stop into their Upper West Side studio on Amsterdam and W. 108th. Tell them Katie said hi :)
