Google Your Business

Why should your business have a Google My Business account to promote your business? As they say,

If your business isn’t online it doesn’t exist

This can be said for business owners who don’t have a Google My Business account.

Dr. O’Dwyer

Dr O’Dwyer was looking to launch her new business. It was essential for us to clarify the difference between her job at Rotunda Hospital and this private endeavour. She shared with us a couple of brands for inspiration and had a few requirements. The brand had to be appealing to a female audience, clean, without a lot of white to avoid looking too clinical, and no dark colours or negativity.

We worked together to create a brand that matched the client’s requirements and appealed to her target audience. Then we created a logo and put it all together on her new website. We also helped her set up for success on social media, making sure her brand stayed consistent across channels.

A consistent bright and clean brand that builds trust with Dr. O’Dwyer’s prospective clients before they even get in touch with her!

We designed a Shopify website with all the e-commerce functionalities that a modern fashion brand needs, including gift cards and newsletter sign up forms. We were also there for the launch of Cloo, supporting them in making their new website and social media pages work together.

Great team, very helpful & professional. I would recommend them for building an e-commerce site like I have.

Cloo has a working website where they can sell their products. They are still going strong after one year in business!
